I had so much fun shooting Judy Collins for the Wall Street Journal earlier this year that they decided to send me uptown to shoot her at home for the ‘House Call’ column in the ‘Mansion’ section. Here’s how the day went…

  1. Great work Brad (and as always, inspiring).
    What type of lamps are you using in your Getto-Flo (Sears) lights? LEDs, fluorescent?

    I carry both 3400k and 5000k fluorescent tubes with me, but we use the 5000k 95% of the time. BT
