    They are great to work under but taking pictures for magazine articles can be a nightmare. I ended up buying two 400w halogen work lights just to keep the camera in focus!
    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!

    Thank you for that Neil I do sometimes take photos on the lathe but normally have a dedicated area to photograph my finished items. The only time I may need decent photos is if I do another magazine article(Not woodturning but woodwork related)

    LEDs are supposed to be good for keeping the insects away, because they dont have a UV attraction component in the light (apparently).

    I bought one for the courtyard and it certainly floods the area with light.
