Beauty Sightings: Lighting and Gobos

Monday, April 2, 2012

Hello Everyone!

This post is for those couples out there that are looking for unique and different ways to add a personalized touch to their wedding. When I go to weddings I notice how important lighting is to setting the mood of the event. Now once you find a lighting specialist and pick out some cool light settings, you can take that one step further with a gobo. Many people have NEVER heard of a gobo so I'll tell you what it is. A gobo is "derived from "Go Between" or Goes Before Optics -originally used on film sets, is a physical template slotted inside, or placed in front of, a lighting source, used to control the shape of emitted light." It basically allows you to make pictures and add texture using lighting.

I have found some lighting and gobo effects I found pretty cool :-)

Here are some that are more traditional, the initials and/or names with the date written in script.

These ones have a more modern feel

These ones do not really spell out a name but instead, they add texture to the room and give the room a different feel altogether!

So what do you guys think?? Are you loving the gobo idea?? Talk to me let me know!!

Stay Beautiful My Loves,
