2 SHUTTERS: a moveable piece within the ellipsoidal or follow spot light that can shut out part or all of the light coming out of a fixture. BASIC LIGHTING TERMS BARNDOORS: with a similar purpose to that of shutters (but used on Fresnels and PARs), these are attachable metal pieces that have hinged panels that can mask the light out of certain areas. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

3 Lamps: light bulbs (the equipment they are used in are referred to as "fixtures"). Color frame: two connected square pieces of metal or cardboard with a hollowed circle in the center; this frame holds the gel in front of the fixture. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

4 Diffusion: similar to gel, these sheets are used to diffuse, or soften, the beam of light and don't usually change the color of the light (unless it is colored diffusion). Gel: also known as color media filter; the plastic film placed in front of lights to change the color of the beam of light. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

5 Intensity: the level of light output coming from the fixture (usually measured in percentages on a control board); the brightness of the light. Open-face fixture: any lighting fixture that has no lens Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

6 Patterns: Also known as gobos thin, steel, circular pieces with a design cut-out; when placed into a slot in the ellipsoidal, these project patterns of light onto the stage. Snoot: also known as top hat; an attachable accessory with a long cylindrical tube used to reduce flare (stray light beams) from lighting fixtures. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

7 A church should be a well-lit place for its worshippers. Good church lighting only enhances the environment, as it is essential for different places within the building. There are three main areas that church lighting can be utilized at its best. 1.Main Stage 2.Choir 3.Congregation INTRODUCTION Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

8 There are two main ways to light a church; a). Direct Ray High ceilings play a major role for direct lighting as it is used overhead to light these areas. b). Reflection This is used where the ceiling is near. Both ways can be used depending on the design of your facility WAYS OF LIGHTING Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

9 QUALITIES OF LIGHT The main qualities of light include; 1.Intensity 2.Color 3.Distribution 4.Movement Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

10 FUNCTIONS OF LIGHTING Visibility Visibility is seeing what is meant to be seen. It is not only what you see, but what you are unable to see, that makes it so important. The ability to determine what you want the audience to see at a given time is known as “Selective Visibility”. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

11 FUNCTIONS OF LIGHTING Composition Stage lighting can be used to compose a picture. Some events contain little or no scenery and use lighting to create the overall picture of the scene. Musical concerts can be an example of this function. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

12 FUNCTIONS OF LIGHTING Placing of Action The stage lighting can be effectively used to represent the location of your presentation. Does the action take place inside or outside? At day or night? At dusk in a garden or at dawn in Manhattan? The lighting can be instrumental in establishing time and place. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

13 FUNCTIONS OF LIGHTING Mood Are you staging a “light” comedy or a “dark” drama? These metaphors are used on purpose to make the point that stage lighting can help provide the mood for your event. Comedies are often bright and cheery. Dramas may be darker with shadows. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

14 LIGHTING TECHNIQUES Front Lighting is most commonly achieved by positioning two lighting fixtures at approximately forty-five degree angles above the subject or object on either side. It provides a natural look and is commonly used for visibility purposes along with color washes. If you are in search of an effect where the light appears harsher and shadows are much steeper, this can be easily accomplished by moving the lights to where they create a higher angle towards the object. A lower angle will in turn cause what is known as flat lighting because shadows disappear and there is no definition of key features. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

15 LIGHTING TECHNIQUES Side Lighting gives you the additional flexibility of hanging more lights along the side of a performance space. It can be very effective with the use of bold colors and is commonly used during musical productions because it provides a very presentational look to a piece. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

16 LIGHTING TECHNIQUES Back Lighting is another technique of lighting that has its own unique characteristics. When something is lit from behind as well as overhead, it separates the object from the background, creating depth. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA

17 LIGHTING PLACEMENT As the lighting designer, you can define goals by choosing which qualities and functions of lighting you wish to accomplish in your design. How do you accomplish your goals? We will first describe a method for lighting fixture placement. Presented by Bassey Bassey TOCHLYT EFFEXTZ MEDIA
