Lighting II: Defining Light

We all know what light is. Yet most of us would find it difficult to define or describe it. Knowledge of natural and artificial light sources improves our ability to create quality interior environments and control them. In this class, we will learn how to describe and quantify light – terms that are important vocabulary when we interact with lighting professionals as we evaluate and select solutions.
