Blue photo bulbs *PIC*

john lucas
Thought this might bring back some memories for some of you. I had to use one of my blue bulbs the other day to enhance some lighting and it burned out. I rarely use them anymore because most of the time I can just white balance on my digital camera. I had daylight balanced strobes lighting a piece and needed a small spot. The spot that I try to use with my strobes doesn't fit right and eats up huge amounts of light. With the Blue Bulb I could simply slow the shutter speed down enough so that bulb would give me the f stop I needed. Once in a while it's hard to beat incandescent bulbs.
