Outdoor lighting is some of the most beautiful work we do at ELLA. Nature creates exciting lines for us to highlight and shadow. It does require quite a bit more technical expertise and intuition, because most of the time the entire event must be set up in broad daylight!
Shadowing in outdoor lighting is as critical as accentuating the space with light. It is quite often that we find ourselves dimming outdoor lighting over the course of the evening to create an intimate environment that doesn’t look too bright and overpowering against the ensuing darkness.
