The purpose of this presentation is to review the reason we all went into lighting.  Understanding how light affects spaces and people.  Lighting is not just about wattage consumption or 'circadian', there are several other important factors that all successful lighting designs have in common.  An accomplished lighting designer will discuss factors associated with successfully implementing lighting designs of a human centric nature.  Outlining the importance of providing quality lighting solutions that touch on elements such as human perception, daylighting, circadian, codes and controls.  We will review several main learning objectives: quality and amount of light, perception and human health factors, creating visual interest with lighting and the details to make all these pieces come together.
