Lighting Tracks

I’m making progress with my studio setup. I found 48″ long steel flat bar with punched holes at Home Depot. Three of these bars will be mounted to the ceiling with screws into the studs, but I wanted to paint it black installing. All my lights, cameras, and cables are black, so this should help everything match and look professional.

Thankfully it’s been raining in California, which had made the simple task of spray painting a challenge. I had to be patient and wait for a break in the clouds to paint my bars.

Tip: clean the steel bars with a soapy rag and then alcohol to remove the cutting oil used in the manufacturing process. I also used spray paint with a primer designed for metal.
