Fall Sunset in Hawaii

I chose this picture as an example of a Fall Hawaiian sunset because of the warm colors accented by the tall dark palm tree.  I could feel the warmth of the Hawaiian sun, and felt the colors of the sunset melded together nicely in a way that would make for a nice lighting moment.

Spring Sunrise on Long Island

I chose this picture as my Long Island sunrise inspiration because the blush and rose colored beams peaking over the horizon remind me of cherry blossoms in bloom during springtime.  The colors also complemented each other nicely through their soft, pastel tones.

Summertime Noon in New England

I chose this photo because I think of green grass and nature when I think of New England.  The vibrant colors of the grass, trees and puffy cloud-filled sky felt fresh and relaxing, just like summertime.

Winter Afternoon in Alaska

I chose this photo because I felt it reflected two major parts of Alaska: fishing and snow.  I really love the way the sun contours and reflects off of the snow covered mountains, and used that angle of light as inspiration for my lighting.
