If you have a CRI of around of around 94 as your studio light but a CRI of only around 82 on your still life setup will this lead to any problems?
For my still life lighting I'm struggling to find high CRI (90+) bulbs that are dimmable so would it be preferable to just aim for high luminosity bulbs with a high CRI that are non-dimmable and then just use different fabrics/materials to adjust the brightness and balance with the studio lighting.
I should perhaps have gone with strip lighting for the studio but I have already made an LED fixture - based on the fixture in one of Mark's more recent videos - which I attached to a TV mount ceiling bracket (see below).
I have recently found what look to be great LEDs for the studio light which would replace the current 5000k/2000l/CRI>80 bulbs pictured in the current setup as they have great all round specs; 3300/5500/6600 lumens, 5500k, CRI>94.

My studio lights are mounted such that the bulbs are about 4ft from the eye level of the easel (although it could be lowered slightly) and thanks to the chart I've seen generously provided by Dencal in other posts, I could see I needed a minimum of 14,000 (7 x 2000) lumens from the main light. This meant compromising the CRI values but these bulbs I've just found would address that.
For the still life setup, I currently have a good ol' painted bucket with a mounted E27 fixture holding 5 LED bulbs which are a mix of 1500 and 900 lumens. These are CRI 82 as an average but I'm just wondering what difference it would make to have all lighting at CRI 90+.
Any advice would be much appreciated. I'm hoping to get the lighting sorted and not have to think about it again (famous last words!).
Many thanks from the UK.
