Types of Lightinguplighting at an event

By Stephanie Meadows

According to Merriam-Webster, lighting (Noun) is defined as “The natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible.”

At Light Up The Night (LUTN), hence our name, we specialize in using lighting as an art form of sorts to brighten up a room to make it stand out. In other words, we stimulate the senses, creating a luminous world, making an ordinary space look extraordinary. 

Whether it be for an event or function, such as corporate and private events, concerts, trade shows, birthdays, Mitzvahs, weddings, etc., we believe lighting is definitely one of the most (if not the most) essential elements used for in this case, event planning.

Lighting is either colorful or white, fixed or dynamic, focused or fills a room. It can serve a host of purposes, such as capturing your guest’s attention, setting the mood and creating a distinct atmosphere. It highlights and ties together various event features, such as food, floral arrangements, decor, presentations/slideshows, seating, and sound.

Truth is, the type of lighting used, and its aesthetic can make or break your event experience. For example, if the lights are too bright or too dark, the elements, design, and overall ambiance of your event space may become compromised.

Therefore, our lighting production specialists tend to make lighting decisions that not only look good but blend in well with the functions’ overall theme or event style.

Aspects of Lighting

When it comes to achieving and displaying effective lighting, there are a number of considerations to be made. There are four aspects of lighting that we like to utilize:

  • Illumination: Lights illuminate all of the main important features, facilitating the big picture, and keeps the audience engaged and wowed.
  • Focus: Lighting is used to focus on a specific person or object, such as a backdrop or logo, to capture the audience’s attention.
  • Mood: Lighting doesn’t just provide the focus on the event itself, but creates a mood within the room. Once a customer sets the scene for the type of event they would like to have, us lighting professionals always aim to make it look breathtaking. Whether it be with color or pattern, which can help to create and enhance the environment. As well as, determine one’s mood and emotions.
  • Overall Composition: We aim to always pull everything together by choosing the right type of lighting depending on the surroundings, demanding one’s attention.

Utilizing different types of lighting will transform your event space into something inviting, entertaining and memorable. It is a very cost-effective, allowing you to eliminate unnecessary props.
