I am using Facetime on an iMac with Mountain Lion.  The room light casts my face in shadow. Is there any way of using the iMac screen as a light source to illuminate my face?

    Brian,

     

    I would not consider the imac screen to be a good source of facial lighting for facetime.  We are using a small desktop lamp here, with an adjustable gooseneck extension.  It works very well as a source of facial lighting with a 15 watt compact flourescent bulb.  The flourescent lighting is great because it gives off a nice blue white light which works well with the built in iCamera.  I suppose an ordinary incadescent bulb would work, although the lighting would be kind of yellowish.
