So I'm mulling over this whole thread eh? So I sit down and pour a cold one, and as I'm sipping at my beer I start looking at the bottle.
Brown bottle. Kinda amber when you hold it up to the light though. And I start to think, (beer sometimes does that to you) and so I go looking for the LED flashlight and my roll of duct tape. (Also known as "the handyman's secret weapon" for all you Red Green fans).
So I tape the flashlight, a 24 LED model, to the side of the beer bottle, a 22oz. size, using the tape to seal off leaks of white light. And I set it in the space between the towel bar and the wall, reflecting off the ceiling. It was bright enough to see by but didn't fog that Oriental paper, at least not at 5 minutes.
Might make a good emergency safelight. The 3 AA batteries that power the flashlight will last about 3~4 hours and I could always wire in a mini plug socket and power it off 3 'C' cells in a seperate holder.
Now don't start in on me about spectral response and all that other science guy stuff. I practice empirical photography if you know what I mean.
