Being on a (very) limited budget, I've started exploring alternates to the standard lighting offered by camera stores. I'm talking about trying to find a decent light for less than $25.00. My first thought was to look into standard floods, anything rated 100 watts or above. Then after browsing, I found that one could purchase a 500 watt halogen work light for about $10.00.

So my experimentation will begin with this lamp. The first questions to be answered are: what spectrum of light does it put out, and how much. I'm hoping that by shooting digital, I can set the white balance to get pleasing results. Even shooting with color negative shouldn't be too bad if the light spectrum is close to what tungsten puts out.
