Virtual Light Lab: Four Seasons

1.) A Fall Sunset in Hawaii 

I used the picture above as inspiration. I loved the wide range of colors in Hawaiian sunsets. In the light lab I wanted to bring out the purples and orange colors seen in the sunset.

2.) Spring Sunrise on Long Island 

I loved the contrast between the calm blue sky and the yellow/orange that is starting to peak through. I put orange light at the bottom to mimic the sun rising into the blue sky.

3.) Noon on a hot Summer day in New England

I used all blue light to show the clear, cloudless day by the shore that one may have in New England on a nice afternoon.

4.)Winter afternoon in Alaska

I decided to use a more icy blue for this image, found just above the trees in the photo I used for inspiration. The blue fades up into white to mimic light shining off of the top of the snow covered mountain.
