15 Daylight has a higher color temperature than tungsten light—and a lower mired value. 16 ■ Basic Photographic Materials and Processes The Munsell color system is a color space that specifies color based on their hue, value, and chroma. by these sources, the Cool White Deluxe lamp would provide more red light, resulting in a healthier, more natural skin-complexion appearance than that given by the Cool White lamp. Determining the color rendering index, R, for any given light source requires that the spectral energy distribution and the correlated color temperature are known, so that an appropriate reference source can be selected.

A colorcorrection filter built into the lens of the flash unit often compensates for the small difference in color temperature. If no such filter exists in the source, a color-correction filter can be used over the camera lens to avoid a bluish cast in the color images. The total light output for an electronic-flash unit depends upon the 24 ■ Basic Photographic Materials and Processes design of the flash lamp and reflector, the voltage, and the capacity of the capacitor. In the early days of electronic flash photography, the exposure was controlled by setting the f-number at the number obtained by dividing a guide number by the flash-to-subject distance.

The reason for this independence is that as the amount of light being measured from the original area decreases with increasing distance, the projected surface area included in the angle of view increases in direct proportion. Thus, the number of candelas per square foot will remain the same. This assumes, of course, a clear atmosphere exists between the meter and the surface area being measured, which is usually the case. The various conversions of illuminance data to luminance data are summarized in Table 1-5.
