Caribbean:

1) G327 @ 75%–> Ten feet above deck, 6′ SR of model, 16′ DS of model, 18′ throw, 13 degree Elevation angle, 21 degree side angle

2)G327 @ 25% –> Ten feet above deck, 6′ SL of model, 16′ DS of model, 18′ throw, 13 degree elevation, 21 degree side angle

3) G327 @ 20% –> 12 feet above deck, 12′ SR of model, 16′ DS of model, 21′ throw, 17 degree elevation, 37 degree side angle

As it is difficult to portray exactly where someone is if they are merely standing in sunlight, I added the background aid in showing the location. I lit the model from all sides but made one side significantly brighter to show that it is a bright sunny day, and still showing the location of the sun. I chose a warm amber to give her a warm glow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before Snow:

CYC: Top: G1583 @ 50, Blue @ Full, Bottom: G1583 @ 80, Blue @ 90

1) AP 1150 @ 75 –> 17′ above deck, 3′ SR of model, 16′ DS of model, 20′ throw, 34 degree elevation, 11 degree side angle

2) AP 4830 @ Full with template –> 17′ above stage, 12′ SL or model, direct side light, 16′ throw, 43 degree elevation

3) Ap 4830 @ 75 –> 15′ above deck, 12′ SL of model, direct side light, 15′ throw, 37 degree elevation angle

4) AP 4830 @ full with template –> 17′ above stage, 12′ SL of model, 8′ DS of model, 18′ throw, 37 degree elevation, 56 degree side light

5) AP 4830 @ 75 –> 12′ above, 12′ SL of model, direct side light, 13′ throw, 27 degree elevation

Before snow, the sky has gray that mixes in with the blue. A cold blanket seems to cover the ground. In order to portray this I used an icy blue wash over the model but added in a single slightly warm light so she didn’t look washed out. Then I added a template which created shadows across her body, adding to the feeling of cold and making her look more dramatic. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1) R32 @ Full –> 17′ above deck, 12′ SR of model, direct side light, 16′ throw, 43 degree elevation,

2) R 32 @ full–> 17′ above deck, 12′ SL of model, direct side light, 16′ throw, 43 degree elevation

3) R03 @ full –> 17′ above deck, 3′ SR of model, 8′ US of model, 14′ throw, 52 degree elevation, 21 degree back angle

4) Ro3 @ full –> 17′ above deck, 3′ SL of model, 8′ US, 14′ throw, 52 degree elevation, 21 degree back angle

5) R03 @ full w/ template –> 17′ above, center stage, 8′ US, 14′ throw, 52 degree elevation, direct back light

6) R 06 @ 75–> 17′ above, center stage, 16′ DS, 19′ throw, 35 degree elevation, direct backlight

For my cathedral I attempted to recreate the glow that seems to be created by the stained glass windows on the side (I used the R32 from opposite sides). I also wanted to create a glow around the model, so I used three back lights, one with a template to add some texture. Then I had to balance out her face so she was well lit, and I used a light straight above her to create an almost angelic look.

1) R43 @ Full –> 17′ above deck, 3′ SR of model, 8′ US of model,  14′ throw, 52 degree elevation, 12 degree back angle

2) R52@ full –> 17′ above deck, center stage, 8′ US of model, 14′ throw, 54 degree elevation, direct backlight

3)R43 @ full –> 17′ above, 3′ SL of model, 8′ US of model, 14′ throw, 52 degree elevation, 21 degree back angle

4) R 38@ 50 –> 10′ above stage, 6′ SL of model, 16′ DS of model, 18′ throw, 13 degree elevation, 21 degree side angle

5) AP6600@ Full –> 15′ above, 12′ SL of model, 8′ US of model, 17′ throw, 32 degree elevation, 56 degree side light

For the sunset I wanted to use a lot of color to recreate the pinkish glow that people get when standing near a sunset. I made sure all the brighter light came from one direction to show where the sun was. I used a few different pinks from all angles to create the pinkish glow, then hit her from the side with a brighter amber to fill in her face and create the look of the sun hitting her from the side.
