Stage Lighting Positions

Most stage lighting designers focus on five main positions of stage lighting.

Front Lights

– These lights are the primary source of lighting for the event.

Side Lighting

– Primarily used to highlight the sides of the performer’s body.

High Side Lighting

– These shine the light on the top of the performer’s head, neck and shoulders so you can see their facial expressions.

Back Lighting

– These lights create depth and separate the performer with the background.

Down Lights

 – This lighting is used to wash an area of the stage with soft or harsh light.
