3) Theme: Romantic

4) It’s hard to think about the theme of romance and think about lighting instead of the subject material. There are so many ways to symbolize romance in our society, from hearts, to people kissing, even to the color red. Romance is exaggerated and yet in some ways trivialized. Romance is this big, passionate, fighting battle, it’s red and it’s loud and it’s shaped like a big heart. I think that romance in reality has this passion and fighting, but a lot of what romance is is truth and comfortability and allowing someone to be close to you. I think the lighting in this picture is exactly that. It does not distort the subject material. It shows the darkness and lightness of what is most important.
