In designing the layout for outdoor lighting in Toronto, these are the basic lighting techniques that can be applied:
1. Down lighting – down lighting is the most common technique being applied, especially if the primary aim is to achieve that “natural” lighting effect. Since the natural source of lights comes from the sun and the moon, then there’s no other best way of simulation but to position also your lighting fixtures above so the lights will cast in a downward direction. In down lighting method, the lighting sources are placed up high over the subjects that will be illuminated. To make it appear very natural, the lighting fixtures are hidden strategically so the lights will seem to radiate from nowhere.
2. Up lighting – up lighting is clearly the reverse of the down lighting. In up lighting technique, the radiance of lights is casting in an upward direction. Up lighting fixtures are positioned below the object to be lighted. Up lighting method can be applied in the garden or pool areas with surrounding trees. The body of the up lights fixture is buried in the soil, so the source of lightings is quite obscured. The lighting fixtures are angled properly to light the trees from its trunk up to the crown -- so that even at night time the ambiance in the garden or pool area is not totally enveloped in darkness because the surrounding trees are fairly lighted, just exactly how things are like whenever the moon is glowing brightly from the sky.
3. Traverse lighting – there’s also the traverse lighting method that makes the lights go across the ground towards the object to be lighted. Same with the other outdoor lightings, the “natural” lightings effect is best achieved when the lightings fixtures are hidden from the sight.
4. Diffused lightings – eye straining glares are prevented with the diffused lighting effect. This kind of lighting technique is achieved with frosted lighting fixtures. Diffused outdoor lighting from Toronto ‘s Orion Lighting provides the whole landscape with excellent illumination with such quality that is difficult to achieve when lights aren’t dispersed.
