Two lights per tree – that was the sum of the lighting in the craft Cup. The effect was dramatic.

Denso, healthy foliage also looked very good against the dark background. I noticed this in particular in a number of mountain pine and hemlock on the screen.

exposure Could have benefited from more light? Good question. Lighter, and could carry out in more detail in the trees, but at the cost of diminishing the surprise factor. Part of me wanted to get a better view of the trees, but another part of me was grateful for the spotlight. I’ve seen plenty of well-lit shows – it was a pleasure to see the handcrafted lighting design presented in the artisans Cup. And I can not help thinking that the lighting will be even better next time.
