Stage lighting is the craft of lighting as it applies to the production of theater, dance, opera, and other performance arts. Several different types of stage lighting instruments are used in this discipline. Stage lighting instruments are used in stage lighting to illuminate theatrical productions, concerts, and other performances taking place in live performance venues. They are also used to light television studios and sound stages. In addition to basic lighting, modern stage lighting can also include special effects, such as lasers and fog machines. People who work on stage lighting are commonly referred to as lighting technicians or lighting designers.

Functions of Stage Lighting

Visibility: If the audience can’t see the actors, everything else the lighting designer does is a waste of time. Studies have shown that visibility affects our ability to understand spoken speech. This doesn’t mean that the audience must see everything all of the time; a German director named Max Reinhardt once said that “The art of lighting the stage consists of putting light where you want it and taking it away from where you don’t want it.”

Mood: “Mood” (or “atmosphere”) is the evocation in the audience of the appropriate emotion. Many designers err in paying attention to mood to the point where visibility is sacrificed.

Composition: The act of painting a picture, in this case, with light.

Plausibility: Sometimes called “realism”, but that’s not always accurate, since not all plays – and certainly very few ballets, modern dance pieces, and operas – are realistic. It’s the same quality that Stephen Colbert refers to as “truthiness”.

2. Architectural Lighting

Architectural lighting presupposes that there’s architecture. Architectural lighting works to serve and enhance the architecture, not merely as an accessory, to create a cohesive spatial experience. So, architectural lighting is an intersection of art (architecture) and technology (lighting). The architecture being illuminated or lighted may be commercial or residential. Other fields of endeavor, such as design, also come into play. Of course, so do physics, engineering, and the psychological and physiological effects of light. Strictly speaking, architectural lighting is illumination for building design and function.

The term encompasses three main factors. The first is the building’s aesthetic, which is important for residential and commercial applications. The second consideration is ergonomic or functional — any aspect that improves one’s ability to live, work, function, relax or play — to make the space easier to use. The third aspect involves the efficiency of energy, ensuring that light is properly, which is to say economically or optimally, used and distributed. This is where architectural lighting design is relevant. Generally, lighting design should account for the specific type of action being illuminated; the amount of light provided, the color of the light, which may affect the optics for particular objects, such as works of art, and the overall, whole environment. Another design factor in a given space — whether it’s exterior or interior — is the distribution of light. Though it varies by application, lighting design should also sufficiently address the impact the illumination has on the inhabitants of the space.

3. Projection Mapping

3D projection mapping, also known as video mapping or simply “projection mapping”, is the art and science of using physical spaces and objects as the surface for a projection, instead of a conventional screen. The end result is a visually striking, almost “magical” effect that has to be seen to be fully experienced. Though projection mapping has been popular in the Western Part of the Globe for years, it has only recently gained momentum in Asian Countries. The world is your canvas, as wide as your imagination. 3D Projection-Mapping Technology offers another medium to showcase your creativity. Projection mapping is today's rapidly growing technology, in which a 3D video mapping technology is used to turn objects, often irregular shaped, into a display surface for video projection.

Projection mapping uses a combination of four factors working in unison to create the visual experience, which we refer to as CPSM.

 

- Content (the visuals that are projected)
-
Projection Hardware (the equipment that is doing the projecting)
-
Surface (the physical space projected onto)
-
Mapping (the technical aspects of conforming the projection onto the surface)
