Event Lighting

We recently starting to offer lighting service at events. It makes a big difference of how the atmosphere mood and feel changes using these uplights. We also have GOBO projection light as well as pin light. Photos and video turns out a lot nicer. Usually not much color correction work is needed.

Hi Taky,

Looks great. Is there a standard basic uplighting 'kit' you'd recommend to be able to offer this to clients?

Taky, that sounds like an interesting approach to the problem. I think I remember in another post you indicated that venues are often poorly lighted not because people are unaware of the bad lighting, it's because they don't want to pay extra for good lighting.

Galen, these uplights will enhance the mood at the reception ballroom. However, it will not be a solution when shooting in a dim lit room. It does help a bit but when someone giving a speech there, without proper video lighting, it will still be bad.
