Lighting Is tungsten lighting dead?

tungsten lighting

In this modern world of low cost, fancy LED lighting do we really need old fashioned tungsten? Lighting is of course very subjective. However, it is as much looking to the past for our teachings as it is embracing the new world and technology. Many things can be improved on sure but we still have a lot that has already been perfected, so why try to re-invent the wheel eh?


Lighting is one such arena where we have witnessed an enormous change of late. LED’s have changed the face of lighting forever, prior to this we had florescent tubes surge and dominate soft lighting in drama and commercials etc. But what of the old guard, the humble incandescent lightbulb?

Over the coming weeks, I want to explore the question of if we still need tungsten and where it fits into lighting setups.
