Lighting Design Basics Workshop: Recap
Last evening we had our first ever Lighting Design Basics workshop. Cairn Allen from Luminosa Lighting taught us about the different layers of light and how to use them. We then discussed different light styles and different light bulbs and where best to apply them. After an information-packed presentation, we went across the street to Luminosa Lighting where Cairn gave us a tour of the store and showed us different applications for various lights. The differences between the various recessed lighting fixtures (aka ‘pot lights) and their different trim and bulb options must be experienced to be fully appreciated. To this end, there is no substitute for going to the lighting showroom and seeing these options in person. Our instructor also recommended trying the different bulbs one at a time on location (in situ) to truly experience them as they will be used.
It was a fun evening full of valuable information. Plus everyone went home with the latest in LED bulbs and Designers Collective’s great goody bag treats.
We will be doing another Lighting Design workshop in the future as this one was so successful and so informative. Check back in with us on our Big Cartel Shop site to stay informed!!
