The five senses are sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Ask anyone what the five senses are and sight is always one of the first two on the list.
It is no wonder that light evokes such emotional responses in us.
The right lighting can transform an area from dark and foreboding to warm and inviting.
The key to great lighting is to turn down the ambient lighting of the room by a factor of 20 to 30%. The dark area’s creates a canvas for the lighting to work on. Up-lighting is a trendy event lighting practice; this technique bathes the whole venue or a specific area by lights.
Types of lighting commonly used for events.
Color Wash or Up-Lighting: There a number of different light fixtures that can create a wash, which is basically a blanket of colored lights covering an area. In some cases different fixtures are used to create a more focused up lighting against a wall or a column.
Gobos: Circular stencils that are used in front of the light to project a design or monograms.
