Daisy Chain Fluorescents
Posted 25 March 2009 - 05:29 PM
I've been waiting for a reason to post!! I love reading the boards here.
I have a challenge ahead in the next few days.
I'm shooting 500T Fujifilm on S16mm in an apartment hallway.
We're putting up a cardboard wall 6" - 12" away from the wall with holes, like a huge cookie.
I'd like to set up 4' fluorescent bulbs along the wall behind the cardboard.
this was the inspiration http://www.iaacblog....ser-cut-dje.jpg
Someone mentioned using speakerwire to daisy-chain the bulbs together.
Anyone know how I'd go about this?
I understand simple electrical circuits, but you can explain as layman as you want.
I'm a sponge.

Also, how long the cords can be is totally a function of how well your ballast would drive the line so you may have to experiment to get it to work with whichever ballast you end up using.
