When you’re a photographer of Andrei Duman’s caliber, it’s easy to understand the need for extremely high-quality lighting.
Duman, a travel photographer who has made art from the scenery of over 70 countries, recently opened a gallery in North Los Angeles, and he wanted to illuminate his work as perfectly as possible. “The colors had to be rendered exactly,” according to Business Wire.
“Light is a critical element in capturing images,” the article goes on, “and it’s critical to the accurate display of color in art photography. In addition, the innovative design of the gallery required lighting that could be carefully controlled to accentuate the space and also be used to illuminate precise points on the artwork.”
“Great photography deserves great lighting,” the photographer explained. “Colors must pop—and Soraa’s lamps are simply perfect. With Soraa LEDs, I could bring out the true green and the detail that is important in my image ‘The Ghost Door’ shot in a diamond mining town in Namibia. Lighting also sets the mood in the gallery and helps the customer connect to the image.”
Duman erected “display trees” which were also illuminated by the LEDs in his 1,500-foot gallery. Glass-framed photos become vibrant on the trees, thanks to the narrow, precise, crisp beam of the Soraa LEDs.
Business Wire explained the technology of the lamps featured in Duman’s gallery later in its feature:
Soraa’s unique GaN on GaN™ technology allows its LEDs to operate at currents that are more than five times higher than LEDs built on other materials…
Utilizing every color in the rainbow, especially deep red emission, Soraa’s lamps render warm tones beautifully and accurately, and achieve a color-rendering index (CRI) of 95 and deep red (R9) rendering of 95. And unlike blue-based white LEDs without any violet emission, the company’s lamps have violet emissions to properly excite fluorescing brightening agents, including paper and natural objects like human eyes and teeth.
