Seeing through the Complex con't
(Con't. from home page) ...what happens at light's point of impact or reflection on its journey to our eyes.
To help make a point, let's hang out inside a layer of something. It can be an applied finish or an organic, natural protective coating, outer shell or skin. Or in the case of a tooth, the dentin layer. Questions arise about its translucency, opacity, reflective qualities, color and molecular density. The same questions can be asked of the surface underneath. This is where good light makes its debut. Therefore, the question arises, what happens to the light returning to our eyes if the light source is too dim or too bright or has an unbalanced light spectrum? Does it distort our perception of what we are seeing? Is this distortion acceptable or not? Will it enhance or limit work performance? What are the costs and time associated with a misread(s)? So when it comes to task lighting, starting with a light that is closer to a natural spectrum seems to make some good sense. When we did our light performance tests, the accurate spectrum light was extremely helpful in seeing through a complex layer more accurately.
