Lights above a wall mirror tend to throw down shadows making you look like one of Shakespear's Sister, while side lighting
, as shown here, will illuminate the face evenly to make sure you can make more of it.
Totally galvanised, it can be fitted with carpet and side lighting
on the access ramps.
The PD65 (handheld) provides twin lighting system, drop and side lighting
for optimal reading on shiny surfaces.
This leads to some unusual and desirable capabilities like side lighting
that illuminates curves when turning and automatic beam leveling that prevents blinding oncoming drivers.
"The best light source on a mirror is side lighting
, left and right, not over the mirror as often seen," says Inderbinen.
He uses side lighting
to bring out the texture of the strands of wire.
Turning back a little and descending a small flight of steps, you come to the tall gallery, again with a pyramid rooflight, but mainly illuminated by a large north-facing window, one of the chamfers which sets up the order of the entrance: the space is intended for sculpture exhibitions, and the side lighting
allows modelling to be revealed in a way which might be suppressed if all light came from the top.
