Picture Light FAQs
How big should a picture light be in relation to the picture?
The size of a picture light should be determined by the size of the picture that it is illuminating. Generally, picture lights should be between a half and about two-thirds the width of the frame. For portrait pictures, a light that is about half the width of the frame is ideal. For landscape pictures, a light that is about two-thirds the width of the frame is usually recommended.
How high should a picture light be above a picture?
The general rule of thumb is to place the light between 2 and 6 inches above the artwork. You should aim for an even spread of light across the picture, rather than focusing on one part. Read our guide for further guidance.
