A lighting professional’s everyday work involves an invisible rainbow, revealing colors with every design. Some designers apply the rainbow with great deliberation and intention, while others get their results by accident. There are tools at our disposal which allow us to articulate specific colors and hues. Beginning with a science refresher about reflected versus absorbed colors, this session will move quickly into CIE Chromaticity charts and Spectral Power Distribution curves. The shape of your rainbow creates the color of your world. Understanding spectral power distribution is the foundation for a better grasp of CCT, CRI, TM-30 and all things light and color.
- Gain an understanding of various lighting color metrics.
- Learn to read spectral power distribution (SPD) reports and how the information they provide differs from correlated color temperature (CCT).
- Learn how to interpret the additional information found in IES TM-30 and how it differs from color rendering index (CRI).
- Learn to apply the color tools at your disposal; SPD, CCT, CRI and TM-30.
Envision Lighting Design
Lisa Reed loves light! Her lighting is less about fixtures and footcandles and more about the feeling light evokes. Her goal on every project is to create beautiful, comfortable, sustainable solutions. She applies the visual and non-visual qualities of light to her designs to define space and impact people. Reed regularly lectures on lighting and has presented at UCLA, USC, Cal State Long Beach, Maryville University, ASID, IES St. Louis, USGBC Mo Gateway Chapter, NeoCon 2012, LED Specifier Summit 2013, IALD Enlighten Americas 2014, and LightFair International in 2015 and 2016.
