Lighting on Black Vs White Background Material

Lots of email questions come through asking if event lighting rentals will look better on white or black background material. No material is actually needed at all, but if you are using it to block a section of the room either black or white will work equally great. This photo is a fantastic example because they used both options. As you can see, half the photo has lighting on a black drape, while they are using a white drape in another section. This photo is from the Ft Lauderdale Fireman Hall in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Our DIY uplighting customers rented 24 uplights and set them to red to space throughout this large room.
