Masking Myself

Theme: Mysterious

Description: One out of 11 photos I did, this was taken late in the afternoon outside with a single light used on my face. Besides the white Bauta mask, the only thing that is seen is my hair and my eyes. What am I think when I look into the lens, right at Mike the photographer? Do I want to hurt him? Am I holding back my anger? Is it just the camera angle that makes me look threatening? That is something that I am interested in revealing with acting. To me, acting is taking off the mask, while in real life you are forced to keep it on.

Lighting Observation

  1. 2/21/17, 6:54, Times Square
  2. Walking through Times Square, I can see a wide variety of neon signs hanging off of the buildings around me. The light coming from the signs is being reflected onto the glass windows of the surrounding buildings.
  3. As I pass through the bustling crowd of Times Square, I look up and notice the neon signs that decorate almost every building around me. These signs glow red, green, yellow, and a multitude of other colors. As I turn my head to take in all of the architecture around me, I realize that the glowing light coming from the signs is being reflected onto several buildings around them. The array of colored light bouncing off of the buildings brought life to what would have otherwise been a dark and dull cityscape.
