Halloween is under two weeks away, meaning millions across the country have adopted the trick-or-treat spirit. One way that people do this is by setting up Halloween-themed outdoor lighting. Listed below are several tips to not only elevate your outdoor lighting and fully embrace the Halloween spirit.
Create Shadows In Your Background
By placing lights low on the ground and aiming them upward, you can create the appearance of shadows appearing within the background. Once someone appears, you can make the illusion of a distorted shadow that occurs over the light.
Be Sure To Emphasize Dark Colors
Black and orange lights are traditional Halloween colors that everyone recognizes. For a more dramatic effect, you can create a more scary scene with blue lights. You can use floodlights with a blue shade to create a frightening development. You can also increase a graveyard-like impact with the blue lights that complement the nighttime atmosphere.
Create A Fire
Fire is another great way to create a scary ambiance. However, you should always ensure that flames are positioned in a direction that can not harm anyone interacting with your space. You can also use flickering orange lights as an alternative to fire. You can also use candles and store them inside jack-o-lanterns for a more traditional look.
Try Using A Fog Machine
When using a fog machine, the fog covers the entirety of your surrounding landscape. A fog machine can create the appearance of ghosts moving around your yard. You can also enhance your effects with track lighting placed on the ground. Create cool effects with track lighting on the ground so the color will appear as if it is spreading fog. If you are ready to complete your design, don’t hesitate to reach out to the professionals at Aqua Bright.
