Lighter And Brighter With GE reveal Bulbs! March 11, 2014 Our House, Product Reviews 3 Comments 2850 If you remember back in January I hosted a giveaway for some of GE’s new reveal bulbs, and I mentioned I was going to receive some to try out in my own home. Well, here they are 🙂 I was really excited to see the difference they would make as I have several friends who swear by them. To give them the ultimate test, I put them in the guest room. That room has only one window and barely gets any natural light. One thing I noticed right away is that these bulbs have a slightly blue hue. I think I’d prefer to use them in a covered fixture or under a lamp shade in the future. Here’s how the room looks with the ordinary light bulbs. I did not change the brightness or temperature at all on the following photos (just re-sized and added text). After I snapped some before shots, I switched out the bulbs. The minute I turned them on, I could not believe the difference! I tried my best to capture it in photos, hopefully you can tell…the best way I can describe it is that 1) they are brighter and 2) the light that they cast leaves colors more true. Less yellowy. Here is a side by side: The difference is way more obvious in person, and I’m probably going to get more of these for the house. It seems to make a difference in how much editing I have to do to a photo to get the lighting correct. Most of the rooms in my house are hard to photograph in natural light (its VERY weather dependent), and when I turn on a lamp or overhead light, I get that yellow hue that I have to then remove in post-processing. The reveal bulbs give me a much truer light to work with. Better light= better photos! Have any of you tried these bulbs yet? *Read full disclosure statement here* 3 Responses Aleta March 12, 2014 I will be looking for these next time I need lightbulbs. Reply Ed Oliver March 19, 2014 You can really see the difference in lighting from the photos! Will have to try them for myself, thanks for posting. Reply redballoon Australia Deals April 18, 2014 Hi!
