Best lighting for modeling

What are some of the recommended lights for modeling

There’s a discussion here:

Earier this year I nought Benq e-reader desk lamp. LED, with intensity and hue adjustment, telescopic arm and bent head giving very wide coverage. Excellent light source for a troublesome sometimes sight.

I’ve got one Ottlite on my bench and two 5500K Tensor lamps. I’m looking for one of the big box stores to get in a new supply of desk Ottlites to replace one of the Tensor lights.

At my age (73 and only one useable eye), one can’t have enough proper light.

I put one of these into use. Install the 5500 LED and you’re good to go!

I bought one of these too! I like it because it is portable and the multiple intensities and hues can help. I often paint in my basement but build at another work bench so I like a bright portable light.

The light should be Daylight,between 5000K-6500K,CRI 80+

At my Bench i have 2 lamps,one classic desk lamp with the proper led bulb like barnslayer,and a magnifier lamp which I modified to become LED after the original CFL lamp died.
the old model of this one but now have 3 circles of LED daylight 5500K

Every now and then when it is too hot or I want to watch a movie with my better half I set up my station on the living room table and I just got this “Daylight DuoLamp Table”, I am very happy, 3 intensity levels, the 2 arms are completely independent both in position and intensity,super versatile

Great choices and options guys. Much appreciated for the info. I’m not that dead set on another Ottlite, only that whatever lamp I buy has a 5500K bulb or will accept one.

The tensor lamp I bought to replace one of the two Tensor lites I ha use along with my Ottlite looked like it was daylight in the store, but once home surely was way to warm.
