Fall Sunset in Vermont

Cyc Top: Red 75%

Cyc Bottom: Yellow 60%

G450 75% Side house right 51 degree elevation

AP5700 50% side house left 37 degree elevation

What I wanted to incorporate was the vibrant reds and oranges that are known to occur within the leaves during the fall, as well as some that have yet to undergo the change of seasons. Along with the sunset theme, I place the back drop to symbolize more of the trees during sunset and the model herself exhibits the sun’s rays upon herself.


Spring Sunrise

Cyc Top: AP5600 50%, Blue 75%, AP6150 29%

Cyc Bottom: NC 25%, AP5800 25%

NC: Top light 75%

AP6400 House left 50 elevation 50%

AP7750 House left 50 elevation 61%

AO5600 House right 29 elevation 50%

With this, I wanted to incorporate the clear blue skies along with the blooming green grass and plentiful colors from the flowers. Sadly, to my best ability I managed to get the grass vibe down and trying to get varied colors within the cyc proved to be challenging. Still, I feel I did a great job at portraying a spring sunrise as most of the light comes from the left.


Noon Summer

Cyc Top: AP4450 83%

Cyc Bottom: AP2120 23%,  NC 61%

NC Full Top

AP7570: backside house left 20 elevation 16%

AP2120: Top Right 68 elevation Full

NC: 75%

AP6400: House right 52 elevation 75%

With this, I thought of more of a beach vibe, like day off from work and hitting the beach with the friends. I feel it accompanies the theme well because as it’s noon the majority of the lights are really high and offset as (depending on location, primarily NY) the sun isn’t directly overhead at noon.



Winter Afternoon

Cyc Top: Blue 54%

Cyc Bottom: NC 84%

AP3100: 40% House left 34 degree elevation

AP6800 50% House right 52 degree elevation

With this one, I wanted to depict the frozen, almost barren wasteland that a winter afternoon seems to bring. With the sky just barely blue, almost engulfed by the whiteness of the clouds, the snow on the grind bring a stark contrast to the sky. With this, the lighting of the sun through the clouds is absorbed and the light shown on the model is significantly less than it’s true output.
