What Are the Rules to Using Color in Stage Lighting?

The use of stage lighting colors is a complex and creative activity in stage design. How to make good use of lighting colors on the stage is a basic knowledge that all stage designers, especially lighting designers, must understand and master. Only by properly handling the relationship between various colors can you create a highly artistic stage lighting effect on the stage.


The color of stage lighting mainly comes from three aspects - the composite color of the light source and the color filter; the second is the color of the light source; the third is the mixed color of the light. In the visual effects of human eyes, the electromagnetic, optical, chemical effects and other effects that start from contacting the color of the object often interact with and accompany the psychological effects of people.


As the combination of warm and cold, intensity of light and darkness, the effects of stage lighting colors are conveyed to the depths of their hearts through the eyes of the audience, and affect their emotional experience and mental state. Therefore, if the color of stage lighting is used flexibly and reasonably, it can fully demonstrate the artistic charm of stage lighting and make the limited stage space show infinite artistic appeal.


Reasonable use of lighting colors is conducive to beautifying the stage composition. The color of the light not only plays an important role in the contrast of the stage mood, the balance of the picture and the rendering of the environment, but also an important means to make up for some defects in the composition and modeling. For example, in the arrangement of the stage scenery, if one aspect is emphasized in the composition, the color of the light can be used to highlight the neglected texture and component of the composition. When setting the light color ratio in the composition, it is necessary to make the light color coordinated and unified in the composition, but also to make the light color rich in the composition. For large-area compositions, the color should be softer, and for small-area compositions, the color should be appropriately strong. If the composition is complicated, the color of the light can be simpler. As well as the shape of the composition is simple, and the color of the light can be slightly more complicated.
