lighting on black surfaces - help please

Post by katyd » Mon Jun 20, 2016 2:39 pm

I’m looking for some advice on lightup

I use sketchup a lot for designing events – latest is a marquee

I have a lot of black draping in the room but want to light it up with coloured uplighters – if my draping is represented by an image does this affect how its lit. Does black in general just soak up light? Im finding it very hard to get coloured light on black surfaces - I really want bright punchy colours but struggle.– any tips on how I can get around this?

thanks
k
