Four Seasons

1) A Fall sunset on Venus

Rosati-Fall

For a fall sunset I used darker shades of amber and orange, on the low stage right to show the sun’s location in the west. Venus is dry and hot, close to the sun, which is why I chose those colors for the cyc.

Stage Right Side Light

50% White, 56° side angle, 0° elevation angle

40% AP6200, -23° elevation angle, 0° side angle

20% AP2100, -19° elevation angle, 56° side angle

Foot Light

15% White, 37° side angle, -31° elevation angle

Back Light

10% White, 54° elevation angle, 0° side angle

 

2) Spring sunrise in New England on Earth

Rosati-Spring

For spring, I tried to create the early morning brightness with low side light on stage left, again for the position of the sun.

40% AP7850, -23° elevation angle, 0° side angle

20% AP4850, 27 elevation angle, 0° side angle

45% AP2220, -19° elevation angle, 56° side angle

 

3) Noon on a hot Summer day on Mars

Rosati-Summer

Mars is famous for its red tint. I used mostly top light for the sun’s location, as well as having an orange-red cyc for the brightness and heat.

Front Light

39% White, 54° elevation angle, 0° side angle

57% AP2040, 48° elevation angle, 37° SL side angle

60% G335, 48° elevation angle, 37° SR side angle

Back Light

25% White, 54° elevation angle, 0° side angle

 

4) Winter afternoon on SaturnRosati-Winter

I wanted a much cooler feeling for Saturn, being the farthest of the 4 away from the sun, as well as being in winter. I tried to create natural looking shadows based on the time, with the sun in a high stage right position.

Front Stage Right Light
