Fall Sunset in Vermont

I used mainly side light to complete this look with some floor light, some back light, and a teeny bit of front light. I forgot to save this as a scene before changing it and can’t list all the lights I used. My bad.

I used the silhouette of a forest on the cyc combined with a blue top light and orange bottom light to emulate a sunset. When I think of Vermont, I think of the mountains and woodsy views that are available there and tried to capture a moment of two people enjoying the view of a sunset from a peak somewhere.

Spring Sunrise in Montauk

Spring sunrises are gentle but bright and I imagined people hanging out on the beach watching the sunrise behind the lighthouse. I attempted to emulate the glow and energy that morning sunrises have as well as the muted quietness and tranquility that comes with them.

  • Lighthouse silhouette image
  • Top: AP3450 at 25% andG685 at 66%
  • Bottom: G480 at 46% and G120 @57%

Hawaiian Summer Afternoon

This one was challenging to re-create due to sunny afternoons having such an intense bright, near white light. I wanted to give dimension to the models while including a brightness. I added a fun silhouette of palm trees and a hammock to emphasize the illusion and continue the silhouette theme.

Cyc:

  • Palm tree silhouette image
  • Top: AP4500 @ 56% – AP6300 @ full – G685 @ 50%
  • Bottom: AP5500 @ 25% and AP4850 @ full

Model:

  • No Color @ 50% – 0 degree elevation – direct side light
  • AP3300 @ 75% -32 degree elevation – 56 degree side
  • AP4830 @50% – 52 degree elevation – 21 degree side
  • AP2140 @ 25% – 51 degree elevation – direct side light
  • No Color @ 50% – 32 degree elevation -56 degree side
  • AP6150 @ 50% – 23 degree elevation – 56 degree back
  • AP6400 @ 50% – 0 degree elevation – direct side
  • AP7250 @ 25% – 0 degree elevation – 56 degree side
  • AP3800 @ full – -19 degree elevation – 56 degree back

Winter Afternoon in Maine

For this scene, I had the challenge of creating a white/grey yet dimensional lighting. Winters up north are full of snow and a bright mystical atmosphere. I used an image of a snowy roadway in the background to enhance the lighting as well as establish a location. Yay snow!

Cyc:

  • Snowy image
  • Top and bottom: NC @ full

Model:

  • AP3450 @ 50% – 33 degree elevation – 21 degree side
  • AP4850 @ 22% – 52 degree elevation – 21 degree side
  • NC @ 75% – 35 degree elevation – direct back light
  • NC @ 25% – 34 degree elevation – 11 degree side
  • AP7300 @ 22% – 27 degree elevation – direct side light
  • AP7330 @ 17% – -23 degree elevation – direct side light
