Since having my first child a decade ago, my work life has been somewhat unconventional. At first, I worked between feedings and naps and now I work between carpool lines and parenting duties. That means that I often get only a few hours of work in during the day and the rest have to be put off until after the kids are in bed.
Because of that, I spend hours every night working. In the dark.
Not the complete dark, of course, but almost. The lamp in my office gave off a dim light that was more suitable for napping than for work. I replaced the bulb with a stronger wattage, but it still gave only a dim, yellow light.
Despite telling my kids not to read or play tech products in dim light because “it will ruin their eyes”, I didn’t take the advice myself. For years, I’ve been working with that dim yellow light because it was what we had.
Look at this gorgeous, bright light! This picture was taken at night, with no natural sunlight whatsoever.
That gorgeous light is from my new OttLite, a lamp that uses high quality LEDs to provide a superior visual experience similar to natural light. OffLite engineers use lamp height, design, and lumen output to achieve ideal brightness levels in their products.
The result is seriously impressive! Look at the difference between the light from my old lamp and the light from my new OttLite:
I’m thrilled with my new OttLite. Not only do I have a nice, cheery bright light to work in, but I’m not risking eyestrain when I work at night now.
And a HUGE bonus for my work – the natural light from my OttLite is perfect for taking photos for the blog. Instead of avoiding all lamp light because of the yellow light, I can use my new OttLite any time I’m taking photos on an overcast or rainy day.
The model that I chose for my home office, the LED Crane Lamp, is a crane lamp that comes with a clamp in addition to the base, so I can clamp it other places whenever I need to. I keep it on my desk most days, then pop it right out of the base and clamp it to the kitchen shelf when I need light in our dark kitchen.
