TikTok has definitely taken over the world of social media and is home to a multitude of trends that has evolved over the past year, from various hit dance choreographies to the tissue paper roll spotlight used especially by influencers to take moody pictures.
Among the many trends on TikTok that have made their rounds internationally, we’ve recently come across the trending sunset lamp.
What is this sunset lamp that’s going viral?
For the uninformed, the sunset lamp has been the latest buzzword taking over everyone’s FYP (For You Page) on TikTok.
We all know how unpredictable the natural sunlight can be and getting that perfect golden hour can be really tough – it’s like playing a round of guess and check (only to see the horror of overly saturated pictures) – which is why everyone’s now obsessing over these sunset lamps.
Since lighting is one of the key factors that can make or break your pictures and videos, the sunset lamp allows you to produce breathtaking visuals without having to deal with the hassle of expensive and heavy lighting equipment.
How to use the sunset lamp
While there are now various models of the sunset lamp, they generally come in a portable size that’s easy to carry around and works just like a normal projector that we used to have in school. What’s amazing about this light projector is its flexibility, which lets you set it up in any way based on your preference.
Pointing it directly towards the wall from a distance produces a natural sunshine effect while bringing it closer to the wall creates artificial streaks of light without sacrificing the warmth in your photos or videos – the possibilities are endless.
You can either use this lamp to dress up an otherwise plain and simple room or give yourself a little at-home photoshoot that would definitely turn out Insta-worthy – just take a look at the examples below and you’ll know what we mean!
There are just so many ways you can get creative with your sunset lamp – check out some of the TikTok videos we have here for you to get inspired from!
