I need some advice because I want to use a shadow box in the next works and I would like your opinion. I live in a house with small rooms, the only comfortable places to work are the dining room and the covered terrace, but since I don't live alone I don't want to disturb others and need to move my materials daily, and on the terrace the strong light, heat and dust won't let me work. I decided to use the small office / room in the house, I can stay there day and night without being disturbed. The images below show him.
The house is very old and a high wall was built behind it, so no light comes in through that window. I decided that the shadow box will be on the bed (I will not dismantle it because I would have nowhere to put the parts and I like to throw myself between breaks from work
), so I will use a pipe structure in it and another to compose the support structure. This is how it will look.
It will have a black plate at the bottom, and cover with black fabric. Images below show the layout I am thinking of using.
Definitely very tight, but I think it can work. Images below show the black fabric that I will attach to the desk and closet, and the lights that I will use: four behind me, all with 7w, 5000k and 590 lumens (CRI 81, they are not the best but for now they will do). Total: 28w and 2360 lumens.
I'll test an extra one on the fan, when I see if it's necessary or not. In the shadow box I will put one more of 7w, and if it is not enough I will use two. The image below shows that the desk lamps are about 1.20 meters from the pallet and 1.30 meters from the easel, and those in the closet are about 1.20 meters.
The distances will be adjusted according to the brightness balance.
What is your opinion? Will the distance to the box be too short, or will it do? Are the lights arranged correctly? I will try to keep them as close as possible to 35 degrees on the easel.
