Four Seasons: Virtual Light Lab Assignment

Venus Sunset

Fall Sunset on Venus

For the fall sunset on Venus, I chose vibrant colors in cyc lighting to mimic the emotions that we feel in fall on earth. I added dark blue top light and lighter side light, reflecting the physical direction of the sun, and the strange shadows you would find on a planet closer to the sun.

2 Front Lights: 23 degree elevation angle, 56 degree side angle, 40% intensity, gel color AP2140, one SL, one SR

2 Side Lights: 0 degree elevation angle, full intensity, gel color AP2140, one SL, one SR

2 Top Lights: 61 degree elevation angle, 25% intensity, gel color RE198, one SL, one SR

1 Top Light: 90 Degree elevation angle, 25% intensity, gel color RE198, one SL, one SR

Cyc Lights-

Bottom: gel color G290, full intensity

Top: gel color AP3800, full intensity

Spring Sunset

 

A spring sunrise in New England on Earth

In New England, spring barely exists, as it seems the whole world transitions directly from cold and grey into sunshine. This image depicts a colder spring morning, with the beginnings of some warm colors, and lots of top light to reflect the position of the sun.

2 Front Lights: -19 degree elevation angle, 56 degree side angle, 25% intensity, gel color G985, one SL, one SR

2 Front Lights: 52 degree elevation angle, 21 degree side angle, 75% intensity, gel color L009, one SL, one SR

1 Front Light: 54 degree elevation angle, direct front light, 50% intensity, gel color G364

2 Top Lights: 61 degree elevation angle, 25% intensity, gel color AP2140, template, one SL, one SR

Cyc Lights-

Bottom: gel color AP3300, 75% intensity

Top: gel color AP2140, 100% intensity

 

Noon Summer Mars Not Lab

 

Noon on a hot summer day on Mars

As Mars is a red, dry planet with no water, the lighting reflects the harsh tones of the environment. The lighting from above washes out the model as though there was no protection between the model and the sun on the ragged, dehydrated rocks of mars.

2 Front Lights: 48 degree elevation angle, 37 degree side angle, full intensity, gel color AP2190, one SL, one SR

2 Front Lights: 52 degree elevation angle, 21 degree side angle, 75% intensity, gel color L009, one SL, one SR

1 Front Light: 54 degree elevation, direct front light, 50% intensity, gel color G364

2 Top Lights: 75 degree elevation angle, full intensity, gel color AP7850, one SL, one SR

1 Top Light: 90 degree elevation angle, full intensity, gel color AP6190

Cyc lights:

Bottom: P35900 gel color, full intensity

Top: G335 gel color, full intensity

Winter Saturn

 

Winter on Saturn is cold and icy, and not very bright. The grey tones reflect how little light passes the rings of Saturn in the winter, and the figure, mostly back lit, is only on a cold, perpetually dusk-y planet.

One Front Light: 37 degree elevation angle, 56 degree side angle, full intensity, gel color G870

Two Top Lights: 52 degree elevation angle, 21 degree back angle, full intensity, gel color AP3500, one SL, one SR

One Top Light: 42 degree elevation angle, 48 degree back angle, full intensity, gel color G987, SL

One Top Light: 48 degree elevation angle, 37 degree back angle, full intensity, gel color G987, SR
