In order to find the perfect lighting for that perfect event, you need to know a little bit about the types of lights to use.  Triad Event Lighting wants to help you. We’ve compiled a list of lighting lingo you need to know when planning an event:

Pin Spot EffectPin Spot: This is a focused beam of light that shines directly onto an object. It’s great for highlighting the wedding cake or a centerpiece.

LED Illumination: This light is generally smaller and uses less energy. It doesn’t get hot which is important if you are having an event with lots of children. These types of lights can create an unlimited number of color combinations which will allow the lighting coordinator to more easily match the lights with the colors of your event.LED Uplight Effect

Halogen/Incandescent Lighting (Par Cans): Although these lights are relatively inexpensive, they contain several draw backs. When in use, these lights can easily get very hot which is dangerous around fabrics as well as small children.  Unlike the LED lights, par cans need gel filters, which is a special type of colored film, to be placed over the halogen lamp, in order to produce various colors.
