2) Picture of old books, on pinterest


4) Already the way that the books are set allows for a good use of shadow and stacking of light. Also the natural deteriorated color of the books plus the additional coloring of the amber light sources makes the books have an almost magical or enchanting feel to them, as well as an ancient or old feeling.

3) THEME: Enchanted

4) DESCRIPTION: The way in which one can see the light rays as they brightly shine in causes a magical and enchanted feeling. The light looks like it is some other magical power coming from something unknown. This enchanting feeling comes from how the light from the sun brightly shines onto the model.

This image is of a landscape in Australia. It is in the late afternoon. Whats makes this lighting enchanted is the brightness and viberance. The light comming from the sky is making the colors of the pathway appear more crisp and light. This landscape could be a late afternoon in some gnomes magic forest where all the gnomes travel along the path to some secret place.

Light Observation #10

1) April 17-1:22am-Lounge Room in Dorm

2) OBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: Two strands of star shaped lights string around on the walls. The lights change individually through a rainbow of colors. There are no other lights on in the room except for these colorful lights.

3) SUBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: This lighting moment made me feel very calm. It was such a soft and pretty arrange of colors it made me feel safe and a little magical. Because of how the colors were not very natural colors, it made the room feel magical. This lighting moment was calming even with all the stress of life.

Light Observation

1.) Lowe 2nd floor April 18th 2018 11:30pm.

2.) While working in Lowe 216 last night with some other sophomores, the power went out all of a sudden. We packed our things and went to exit the building. When we got out into the hallway the emergency lights and exit signs were on. The doors had all auto closed as well. The emergency lights in the hallway were cumming from the middle top of the right side wall and had two medium flood parnell. They were very cool in temperature, and were strongest in the middle of the hallway. Directly under and the ceiling above were almost a cool blue, and the floor underneath reflected the light back up cratered a glare on the floor.

3.) The whole scene reminded of the opening scene to the walking dead season 1 opener. The main character wakes up in the hospital after a zombie apocalypses has destroyed the world an as he wanders the hallways lit by emergency lighting, he moves twords some doors barred shut that read “Dead Inside” written in blood. It was very creepy, after taking some pictures to remind me of the lighting I ran out of the building.

3. The lighting in this photo is, for the most part, very mysterious. The fog in the trees adds to the feeling of mystery as well, but something about the light path that moves through the forest adds a lot of whimsy to the phot. It feels as if there’s a magical world just below the floor of these woods..

Light Observation #10

April 18th, 2018/ 5pm/ The Unity Project-Memorial (Calkins) Quad

Objective Description: I’m standing under the layer of yarn strings. The strings are blocking out the sun but there are many cracks that let in the suns rays.

Subjective Description: The Unity Projects giant yarn quilt is already beautiful, but having the sun shine from above it makes the yarn glow in a rainbow pattern. The cracks in the quilt also shine straight through and you can almost “see” the beams if you look down at the grass.

Lighting Observation #11

  1. April 19, 2018 – 7:15pm – Adam’s Playhouse
  2. I am sitting in a chair putting my makeup on. I am looking at multiple lights surrounding the mirror. There are about 8 horizontal and 12 vertical. The light shines on the dancers’ faces and allows them to put their makeup on evenly.
  3. It was at this time that I realize the significance of these lights. Not only are they assisting the dancers as they are putting their makeup on, they are making them feel beautiful. As I watch the performers, I see them keep looking back at the lit up mirror for positive confirmation. After they look, they allow a small smile to appear on their face, and almost without blinking, they rush off finishing their other duties. But it was at that moment when the lighting reassured the dancers that they were beautiful.

Lighting Observation #10

1. Date: April 19, 2018
Time: 10:00pm
Location: My Bathroom
2. There is a small lilac nightlight in the outlet near the door to the bathroom. It’s very faint, but it casts a pale glow on everything around it.
3. The light makes the otherwise completely dark room feel very mysterious. It lights everything very faintly and with a color that seems just off-white although the color is actually purple. Everything that is affected by this faint light, looks as if the moon is shining on it. It gives the room a glow instead of complete illumination.

Theme: Enchanted

Description: In this image, a woman is leaning in towards a glowing crystal ball as her hands also gently hover above the table. This image gave me a mysterious vibe while also capturing wonder and magic . The way the ball glows and lights the woman’s face as she looks into the viewers eyes also makes it feel all the more mystical.
