I was getting a lot of glare with the IR emitting LED above the petri dish. I read that moving the LEDs to the side to have a 45 degree angle of incidence would reduce glare.

To figure out the placement of the LEDs I wrote a python script that visualized the light coverage. 

My next step is to add a top down view to the script
