Gobo (Patterns)

The magic of gobos is that you can not only project simple messages or names but can also create environments and scenery for an incredibly low amount of money.  Fundamentally gobos are a steel or glass stencil that blocks and lets light through.  Where there is a solid image the light is blocked but where it is open or more transparent light will pass through the gobo.  The projection will depend upon the pattern you choose from the predesigned stock gobos or if you decide to design your own.  So if you want to project the name of the bride and groom, create a forest or show light coming through a window gobos are the way to "go"!  Gobos can be used in ellipsoidal (leko) or in the gobo wheel of many moving lights. Add motion to your gobo by putting it in a gobo rotator.
