    get you a tripod at walmart for around 20 bucks, set it up and take about 25 digital photos without flash about 2 minutes apart from sundown to complete dark. The pictures look best when the sky is a dark, dark blue. congrats on the first job !

    Hey Texanlawnandlandscape, what product do you install? Just curious, I saw you were looking for advice in recent posts and I am in the DFW area. If ever I can help, just let me know. Thanks

    i have instaled claro lux ( not very good but decent) and kichler. i like it. did evening lights on my house, and like it. the wall wash lights seem a little cheap and flemsy, but i like the look of them. bout to fix an fx system. get this these idiots put 14 lights on a 300 watt transformer! and they wont come back to fix it! been 2 and a half years since it was installed, and theres suprizingly 3 lights working now. ha! good for me tho.
