Posted November 06, 2018 07:31:16 If you’ve ever wondered how to set your own lighting in your home, this article is for you.
I’ve created a tutorial that will walk you through setting up your favorite light in your kitchen, bathroom, or other places where you might need to see your favorite movie.
Find a source for light bulbs.
You’ll need to purchase these bulbs if you don’t already have them, but there are many outlets for your household light source.
You can purchase bulbs from Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, or many other places.2.
Determine the approximate distance between your lights and your source of light.
It’s important to be accurate, so choose an accurate value, as well.
For example, if you have a wall-mounted lamp that produces a constant beam, then you want to know the distance between it and your light source, since that will affect how bright your light will be.3.
Deter the amount of time you’ll spend adjusting your bulbs to match your light’s brightness.
I recommend checking your bulbs in about an hour, but if you’re using them as a light source only, you might not need to adjust it for a full hour.4.
Make sure your lights have a constant wattage.
You don’t want them to run out and burn out in the middle of the night, so you’ll want to make sure your bulbs are at a constant 10 watts or less.5.
Use a fixture with a minimum distance between the bulb and the light source so you can easily adjust the intensity of the bulb’s output.
(You’ll need this distance to keep your bulbs from dimming when the lamp is off.)6.
Choose a fixture that has a fixed center of light, which is the brightest spot on the fixture, and adjust the bulb to make it look as though the fixture has a dimmer light.7.
Put your bulbs on a tripod, and position them in a corner.
Make your adjustments in a clockwise direction to avoid accidentally changing the center of the light.8.
Place your light in the center, using the tripod as a center of gravity.9.
Check the bulb.
The bulb should light up brightly, with a steady intensity.
If it doesn’t, adjust the brightness a bit.10.
Turn on your lighting source, and set it to dim.
(In this tutorial, I’ll use a dimmable light bulb, which will dim down when it senses that the lamp has dimmed.)11.
Turn the lamp on, and enjoy your new-found brightness.
