That Hollywood Scoop LightSaturday, May 13, 2017
|Jo-Ann & the scoop light|
Memory at my age is a tricky thing. Only recently did I remember that I had other photographs taken with my Hollywood scoop light besides the ones I had taken of Jo-Ann who is now a psychiatric nurse.
This is what I wrote:
I have this very large light that I call my Hollywood scoop light. It may have been used as such a thing many years ago. It has a huge light bulb that resembles an ordinary incandescent on steroids. When I turn it on it is very hot. It currently does not fit in my small Kitsilano studio so I store it up in the studio attic. Since it is balanced for film lighting it is rated at 3200 degrees Kelvin.
Even though I have owned it for at least 20 years I have only used it once. Illustrating this short blog is my former once-a-month Thursday girl Jo-Ann who is now a psychiatric nurse.
The light was given to me in the late 80s when studio photographer Brent Daniels moved to Toronto. This is his website.
I have now remembered that I photographed N in my studio. I very much like the results.
