Photo Observation: Single source, artificial light


Screen Shot 2016-03-05 at 1.25.24 PM

Theme: Single source; artificial lighting

Description: This is a perfect example of single source artificial light. The boy in the photo is slightly turned while a single light from below  is illuminating his face. Since the light is coming from below sharp shadows are created underneath his eyes and around his nose and mouth. These shadows make it appear as if he was telling a ghost story to his friends in the dark and holding a flash light below his face to add to the overall experience. The shadows on his face and the darkness that consumes the background also make it appear as if he is hiding or in an unsafe space.
