Stage lighting: how to set up

How to set up the lighting equipment to make the lighting design for your performance go as well as possible and bring only positive emotions.

There are several parameters by which you can describe stage lighting. Let’s look at them.

First – is the color solution, that is, what color will be the rays or flooding scene.Light solution will transmit the mood of the dance, emphasize the image. Separate colors themselves can affect a person in a certain way. Thus, bright colors are active, while excitatory (bright red), others are soothing (green), less active colors of subdued tones. Tones of blue, blue, purple we perceive as cold, red, orange, yellow – as warm. Lighter colors seem lighter to us, darker colors seem heavier. Colors bright and light, saturated and dark, contrasting and convergent cause appropriate feelings, moods – happy and sad, calm or anxious-tense.For example, we write: cold light, blue and white light.

Secondly, the statics and dynamism of the lighting solution. Static light solution remains unchanged for a relatively long time. Dynamic light is a relatively frequent change of light patterns that emphasize the dynamics of speech. for example, we write: when working on the right pylon light make dynamic.

Thirdly, it is volume and saturation.Spot light – the light produced by a fairly narrow beam of different shapes

Floodlight – light that fills large spaces.

You can ask to set from 10 to 100% of the maximum (respectively will be from the minimum light to the brightest). For example: at the beginning of the room, a spot light on top of the left pylon at 40%, the rest of the scene is dimmed.

Fourth, this is the direction of the lights: A backlight is directed at the performer from the back curtain. When we shine the light from behind we create silhouettes, the side light is directed sideways, it creates volume and contours, a halo around the object. Frontal light, ‘in the forehead’ – good coverage of the entire side of the object facing the light source, and the ability to make do with a single light source. For example: from 3 min, at the end of the room, a backlight.

Thus, the light design of your room on stage, maximize your idea
