Fluorescent lighting comparison chart

http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/H...7/spectra.html

This fellow made a really cool fluorescent light comparison.
Currently, I'm looking for a cheap source of T-8 3200K bulbs.www.flo-co.com has some MovieTone bulbs for $20/each,
but I don't see any for T8. Why T8 ? Home Depot is selling
four bulb 48" T8 32 watt troffer fixtures for $40, including a
6' wire extender and four bulbs. Although these T8 troughs
are 4x32 Watt, they don't seem as bright as my two bulb
2x25 Watt T-12 fixtures. What's up with that?

Here's a link to the troffers I'm using to light up my garage:

I'm in the process of putting up butcher paper to soften the
lighting. Is anyone doing anything similar?

Kind of dangerous to put something that flamable up on the walls and ceiling, I'd say.

Why not just spray the interior of the garage a light gray? Safer and more permanent.

One thought though. I'm preparing to shoot a series of training videos on judo. The clothing is either white or black. To have the background white would be a serious exposure problem.

The school is putting up medium gray canvas on one wall so we have a decent chance to get pictures without a washed-out background.
