When pin spotting it is best to aim for the largest part of the Floral arrangement. Sometimes that may be very high and you may need to watch peoples eyes. Many arrangements are low and you will focus onto the center of the table. If you have to focus after the tables have been set and before the flowers are on the tables it is often a good idea to focus with a white bucket on the table. This is a helpful trick I have employed over the years and last but not least move the table into the light. It may be my last resort. But I expect perfection when I am lighting anything even a simple flower. Happy Lighting.. Donna
The best way to light a plane for an event is to use battery powered LEDs and light them from the ground it is easy and fast. Secret of focus is almost as important as the color. To sucesufully light a plane you light the number that is the important part of the plane. and the fastest way to identify what it is. The wings and the hull will likely appear for other sources. We just need a hint of what the structure is and out minds will draw the rest. after all this is a “backdrop”, “a scene” for the party and not selling a plane. If I were selling a plane I would light this differently, likely just like I do when I am selling a car from all 4 angles. Color I would choice the led white because it puts off a nice blue hue which is very calm cool goes with the blue runway lights nicely.. Why I am writing this is because I have seen others go to extraordinary lengths to light a plane wrong. It just this easy..
