Light Arrangement to Give Better Result

 

To make the image-based perforated pattern outstanding, we should consider the use of back light to give a better representation of the original image. Lighting sourced either from natural light (eg. sunlight) or artificial light ( eg. a spotlight)  plays an important role in creating a better composition to improve the visual effect of the perforated pattern. Placing a bright light behind the perforated sheet will create a perforated shadow which can be even more sophisticated for the perforated pattern.

The illustration below is a 3D design of an image-based perforated pattern. In this design, a bright spot light was placed behind the sheet and a red spot light focused on the centre area of the  foreground. This creates an eye-catching light manifestation through the perforated holes. However, the bottom picture has only a little light (because the use of ordinary light in a room) and this causes the perforated pattern to not be properly distinguished.
