If you want to configure professional stage lights, you must first understand the common light positions of stage lights, which is an important part of the correct selection of configuration.
1. Ceiling light:
The light projected from the top of the audience to the stage. This stage light is mainly used for the front lighting of the characters and the basic lighting of the whole stage.
2. Ear light:
The stage lights are located on both sides of the stage. The light projected diagonally on the stage is divided into upper and lower layers. It mainly assists ceiling light to strengthen the facial lighting and increase the three-dimensional sense of the characters and scenery.
3. Pillar light (also known as side light):
The light projected from both sides of the proscenium is mainly used to illuminate the two sides of people or scenery to increase the sense of three-dimensionality and contour.
4. Top light:
The blinder stage light projected from the top of the stage, which is divided into a row of top lights, two rows of top lights, and three rows of top lights from front to back. It is mainly used for stage general lighting to enhance stage illumination, and the fixed-point illumination of many sceneries and props is mainly solved by the top light of the stage lights.
The light projected from the reverse direction of the stage (such as the top light, bridge light) can outline the characters and scenery, enhance the sense of three-dimensionality and transparency, and can also be used as a specific light source.
6. Bridge light:
The light projected on the stage at the flyovers on both sides of the stage is mainly used to assist the column light, enhance the three-dimensional sense, and also be used for other light projection positions. The stage bridge light can also be used as a specific light source.
7. Foot light:
The light projected from the platform in front of the stage to the stage. The stage foot light mainly assists the surface lighting and eliminates the shadows formed by the faces and jaws of the characters illuminated by the high-level ceiling light.
8. Light emission from above and below the backdrop:
The light projected from above and below the backdrop to the backdrop is mainly used for the lighting and color change of the backdrop.
9. Flowing light:
Located on the mobile light stands on both sides of the stage, it mainly assists the bridge light and supplements the light on both sides of the stage or other specific light.
10. Follow spot:
The light position needed from the auditorium or other positions is mainly used to track the performance of the actor or highlight a specific light.
