Fade to Black

Having retired from the lighting industry to focus on Photography, this blog has become redundant. Launched in 2008 to explore the topic of emerging solid state lighting technology, which was highlighted in 2010 with the 52 in 52 effort (now 13 years in the rear view mirror.) Over 15 years, this blog has covered lighting technology from my unique perspective, exploring the emergence of LEDs and SSL as it changed the market place and products related, as well as product development topics, 3D Printing, and other topics that came to me along the journey forward.

Since retiring, my time available and interest in contributing to lighting has faded to make room for automotive and motorcycle photography -obviously irrelevant to the purpose of this blog.

Lumenique LLC will continue as the studio site for my photography and art offering as a gallery and customer interface for photography work. The Lumenique storefront will also be closing shop concurrent to this blog’s going dark.

If you find any of the content here of interest, I suggest you download it now, or contact me for copies of materials presented.

If you find anything of interest at the Lumenique Store, now is the time to be bold and make an offer, as I clear the inventory on offer there as well. Use the product code ‘dark‘ to receive a 50% discount on all remaining in-stock art or products at the store.

As of September 2023, this blog site will go dark and the content will be archived or deleted, and removed from public view.

I wish everyone in the Lighting Industry my very best. I enjoyed a long and interesting career there. However, the time for change has come in both interest and complete focus.

Best regards,
