Lightings are the lifeline of events. Setting up a right tone for events with varied lighting is a state-of-the-art owned by only a handful of event decorators. They have established themselves as Pablo Picasso and Leonardo-da-Vinci of events. They stand-out from the pack owing to their un-match skills and un-scaled imaginations.They know very well how to convert rigid lights into an enigmatic lighting aura by angling them at the right degree.
Just as no two events are similar in their proposition the lightings would not be the same. The lighting shades for a professional corporate event would be different than the glamorous fashion show. The science of lighting effect revolves around four dimensions reflection, refraction, diffraction, and scattering.
Let’s see skills of few decorators who nailed down event creating awesome and appealing lighting effects using these dimensions.
1. Pin-Spot Lighting
In events, there are many special items that require spotlight and pin lighting, it will help them bring on the surface. After spending a lot of money on decor, centerpieces, or a wedding cake, you don’t want them to go un-noticed. Spot lights typically cast a single beam of light no wider than 45 degrees to understand whether a spot or wash is appropriate for your event, check video here
Uplighting is preferable to light ceiling or walls that are less shiny or light reflective for instance, walls made of bricks or stones. If set at proper angle it will taint area covered through pillar to post, and will create a miracle with its incandescent lighting.
3. GOBO Lighting (breakup gobo pattern)
Gobo lighting is one of the oldest stage lighting effects and is still in trend. A gobo is traditionally a piece of metal placed against a light source, with shaped holes cut into it to produce a pattern of light. If your event venue is a tent, you can project gobo over the tent to transcend event into the scintillating theme from above.
4. Under Water Lighting
Pool side party or event is common culture observed to drizzle guests in a mellow mood. If there is a water body around your event place half of your décor is done, the rest half is done using some artistic lighting effect from the water depth.
5. Roof Lightings
Roof lighting can lift event space brilliantly if lights arranged in a specific manner. It will emerge event roof with a soft glow. The choice of roof design also matters for lighting, for instance suspending roof drapes from roof could justify light effects better than plain roof especially if the event is organized under tent or dome.
6. Lights Over Sitting Space
Focus lights could be used to highlight intimidating sitting area and guests during events. Rather illuminating centerpieces and garden with lights why not turn event sitting area as a centerpiece.
Aqua LED Waterwave Effect Light is multi-coloured flowing water that will wash event crowd with its tranquilizing effect. The small episode of waves will add depth to your event celebration and fills open spaces elegantly.
8. Color Wash
Color wash effect spreads a blanket of particular color on the entire area of the event and in middle blossoms the floral centerpieces with a tint of theme color. Usually, floodlights and uplighting in combination are used to create color wash effect. Color wash does not support patterns, beam adjustment or any other accessories except color and diffusion.
9. Customized Monogram
Custom monogram is an upgraded version of Gobo lighting to entice guest mood crafted with personalized message. It gives a personal touch to host by projecting name, event date, monogram an/or your choice of design elements onto a wall, floor or your choice of canvas. You can move your monogram to the event’s key places and add other advanced effects.
10. Intelligent lightings
Sky is the limits for intelligent lightings. Intelligent lightings or augmented lighting regulate different parameters for lightings viz color, pattern, focus, prism, movements, rotation speed and animation to add special effects. It flickers and reflects lights to musical beats, exhibiting much more capabilities than static lights. The sensors detect the brightness in event venue and adjust the light intensity accordingly.
