The effect of different light sources on the appearance of colors of objects is called color rendering. Three light sources can be sampled and compared at this exhibit; high color-rendering fluorescent, standard fluorescent, and incandescent.

The light of the high color-rendering fluorescent bulb is ideal for soft, even lighting with accurate color rendering. This fluorescent provides the best facial illumination, needs fewest bulb replacements, uses the least energy and costs less over the lifetime of the bulb.
