As this snapshot photo testifies, the wealth of light provided for the 1000-footcandle demonstration in the G.E. Institute so nearly approaches the generous amounts of light prevailing outdoors that the floodlights, spots, and other equipment generally used in taking photos indoors was entirely unnecessary in taking this photo.

Despite the great quantity of light present, the quality of the illumination is such that there is a complete absence of uncomfortable glare.
