Lighting Design

The sub-title of this blog is “Travel and Technology” my two passions in life. This post, however, is about my third passion: theater. Specifically: lighting design.

I’ve been involved with drama groups since the 6th grade, when I joined the group at school as a stagehand. Many years later, I’m still working with some of these people, now mostly focusing on lighting design aspects.

This year has been the first time that I had an all-white stage to light. A white stage comes with a few challenges, but it is also a great opportunity to experiment with colors.

In this production the light design was very simple – only half a dozen different cues – but still accomplished setting the right moods for the show.
