Lighting designer Jennifer Tipton met Sardono W. Kusumo, an Indonesian dancer and choreographer, in 2008 at a workshop she was giving in Java. Tipton, one of this country's preeminent designers, had participants reverse their usual roles: Lighting designers made dance pieces; choreographers lighted them. Returning to Jakarta later that year, Tipton discovered a different kind of artistic shift. Sardono, known for his intense physical style, had begun painting. He was producing massive canvases, up to 30 feet high.

Finding fixtures and lamps for period-influenced interiors can be just as important as choosing the furniture. "The biggest misconception I hear is that ‘I can't afford period lighting,' " Lara Spencer says. "But the truth is you can find really nice vintage fixtures for the same as or not much less than some mass-market reproductions if you just know where to look." She thinks of lighting as the "jewelry" that finishes a room — "a fun way to make a big statement," she says.

Question: Our condo homeowners association is debating whether to buy new lighting for all the hallways, which would cost just under $200,000, or repair the existing lights at a cost of about $15,000. In each case, should funds come from operating or reserve funds? How is the decision reached as to which path to take? Answer: Operating funds are collected to meet the association's day-to-day operating expenses, including utilities, gardening and routine maintenance such as replacing lightbulbs.

You can get great pictures from a phone or a point-and-shoot, and Kathy Pyon of the L.A. Times photo staff will tell you how. In a talk at the L.A. Times Travel Show, which she will repeat at 12:30 on Sunday, she told show attendees that the photos they were about to see were not enhanced. "Everything you see is from my phone or from my point and shoot," she said. So how do you get great photos out of the littlest gadgets? Three basic principles, she said: lighting, composition and moments.

Recently you published an editorial titled "Arrogance and Ignorance" (Sept. 15) dealing with the proposed lighting system at Lawrence Welk Village. As a friend of Palomar, I applaud your stand in keeping the light factor down. However, we are faced with another serious lighting addition to this area at the proposed "Water Park" to be constructed about a mile from Welk Village. Besides the added traffic hazard, it would seem that adding adequate lighting for such a large facility would be many times brighter than the increased lighting wanted by the management of Welk Mobile Home Park.

I find it insulting and offensive that in her article, "Lights and Latkes: The story of Hanukkah and how the holiday grew" (Dec. 1), Susan Friedland writes that "the candle lighting was probably borrowed from pagan solstice celebrations." According to Jewish law, the reason Hanukkah is celebrated by the lighting of menorahs is because our sages directed us to do so to commemorate the miracles that happened. I challenge Friedland to find a single reliable source that points to pagan worship as the reason.
