The holiday season is upon us, and you know what that means — lots of photos. Whether you want a shot of the whole family or just some selfies with your coworkers, your lighting can make or break your pictures. As you prepare for the holidays and the events you’ll host, here are some lighting tips you should keep in mind.
Create a Lighting Plan
First things first: consider your lighting plan before you begin designing your lighting scheme. Which rooms do you need lighting for, and why? Does it fit your desired holiday theme? Take a look around your space, and write down the areas you need illuminated — the dance floor, tables, buffet area, etc.
When it comes to event lighting, uplighting is one of the best options. Uplighting uses ground-based lights to illuminate certain features — signs, banners, tables, etc. Event uplighting can be used both indoors and outdoors and can even be battery-operated, so there’s no hassle to hide any wires.
Choose LED Lights
LED lighting is inexpensive, environmentally friendly, and doesn’t emit heat, so it’s perfect for crowded places. LED lights are also very versatile, coming in a wide variety of colors.
Add a Little Color
Soft, warm lights make your guests feel more relaxed and are a beautiful option for decorating. However, don’t be afraid to add a little pop of color. Colored lights can make your holiday event look sophisticated, as well as festive.
