Lighting Observation 1 (Week 5)

1)   2/27/11 – about 8:15pm – In front of Hofstra Hall

2)   A very yellowish light coming from inside Hofstra Hall, surrounded by darkness.

3)   This light really spoke to me because it reminded me of the movies and how I have seen several shots or scenes where everything is dark except for one warm yellow lighting source coming from inside some house or something.  This moment was full of relaxation and almost had a romantic feeling to it.  When first glancing at it I pictured someone sitting in a large arm chair, ready for bed, reading and there just being a fireplace or soft colored desk lamp illuminating the area.  The light was so warm feeling and cozy.  It was surrounded by the darkness outside that helped create a high contrast.  The moment was very fairytale like and it had a sort of fantasy like quality to it.  For some reason I am attracted to this kind of light, considering I have mentioned it before in a way and I think it just has a very inviting feel to it.
