Light Observation

  1. Wednesday at 9:40 in Bits.
  2. The morning sunlight was shining through the glass windows and through the ice that was frozen on to the windows in Bits and Bites.
  3. The bright and beautiful sunlight shined down on to the glistening ice that was glued to the glass windows of bits and bites. As it twinkled above my head, it reminded me that I was safe and warm behind the walls of the building. It filled me with delight and happiness.

Photo Observation

1. Drama 16 single light source 1

2. Me

3.  Single subject single light source

4.  On this day, my precious little bundle of joy climbed his first tree. Gary is my favorite cat and I picked this particular photo because of the way the sunlight hits the back side of the Gary and his tree at a steep angle.

2) This photo was taken by me in the summer hanging out in botanical gardens.

3) Theme: Single subject, Single light source

4) I chose this photo because the sunlight on the middle right side catches the eye. I like how the color is white and it is bright, warm, and inviting. If you look closely you can see the right side of my face slightly brighter than my left side as the sunlight reflects on my face. It is a simple selfie.

Lighting Observation

  1. Soccer Field, 11:00 p.m., March 15, 2017
  2. There is no one out on campus. I am driving back from dropping my friend off when i notice the giant soccer lamp casting a cool, long shadow over the soccer net. It is the only light in sight, aside from a few dorm rooms. It bounces off the snow and reflects the light in every direction lighting up the whole field.
  3. I was driving back to my room when i noticed the soccer lights lighting up the whole field and parts of the parking lot. It was the only light in sight. The blue-white lights reflected off the snow and bounced every direction.

Photo Observation

  1. Marilyn Monroe, Photographed by Sam Shaw, Seven Year Itch
  2. Single Subject – Single Light Source
  3. When i learned that the theme was single subject – single light source, i immediately thought of this photograph of Marilyn Monroe. I love how she is sitting in a very elaborate costume backstage beneath a stage light just sipping a cup of coffee. It is the perfect set up of a picture and captures such a simple moment.

3. Single Subject – Single Light Source

4. My favorite aspect of this photo is the actual light source. The single light source in this photo is the sparkler, only allowing for part of the woman’s body to be lit. I love how it is a light source that is something other than the usual lamp or overhead light. Another aspect of this photo that I find interesting is that it is a black and white photo. This allows for there to be no color coming form the sparkler which I thought was interesting.

  2. Theme: Single Subject/ Single Light Source
  3. I really live how he uses light in photos. This one is particular is so simple, yet i get chills every time i look at it. You can see her face clearly and it looks so intense.

Light Observation

  1. In the Bronx, sitting in the car Wednesday 3/15/17 at 1:30 am.
  2. Bits and pieces of ices scattered all over the window in a nicely form. The street light was hitting directly at it and it made the ice glow like stars.
  3. I was on my way to Hofstra really early in the morning after the snow storm had passed. My dad was breaking the ice from the windshield and scrapping it off. On my side of the window I noticed just little pieces of ice all over. The street light was beaming right on it making the ice stand out. It actually looked like an ombre because some pieces were glowing and some were did not get hit by the light. When I was analyzing the ice it didn’t even look like ice to me. The ice looked like sparkles and it reminded me of prom dresses that I was looking at a while back with sparkles shining all over in a pattern. It was actually really pretty I took pictures of this lighting moment.

Lighting Observation

  1. Axinn Library, Thursday March 16 2017 around 2 pm
  2. there was some gorgeous sunlight coming in through the window I was sitting next to.
  3. Sunlight always seems to be brighter after a snowstorm. the world seems much brighter and happier on Thursday, which must have been due to the light bouncing off of the snow. All the light did cheer me up though, since i was sitting writing a paper at the time.

Photo Observation

  1. Photo found online through Google, taken from Brigham Young University – Idaho webpage, photographer unknown; https://courses.byui.edu/art110_new/art110/glossary/glossary.html
  2.  Theme: Single Object/Single Light Source
  3. At first I found this theme to be more daunting than the rest; how was I going to figure out if a photo had a single light source?  This picture however really struck me, and I feel it fits the theme well for a couple of reasons.  First, it clearly shows where the light source is – it is a SR diagonal front light; we can tell by the way the shadows and light itself falls within the picture, the second reason this picture works well.  Through the positioning of the object, we are able to see not only where the light source is in relation to the object, but what type of angle the light source is at. My guess is that the light source is at a steeper angle because of how the shadow falls more on the bottom corner of the object while the top portion has more beam coverage, and that is is closer to being a side light than it is to being a straight front because of where the beam spread falls.
