Lighting Observation #10

1. Date: April 19, 2018
Time: 10:00pm
Location: My Bathroom
2. There is a small lilac nightlight in the outlet near the door to the bathroom. It’s very faint, but it casts a pale glow on everything around it.
3. The light makes the otherwise completely dark room feel very mysterious. It lights everything very faintly and with a color that seems just off-white although the color is actually purple. Everything that is affected by this faint light, looks as if the moon is shining on it. It gives the room a glow instead of complete illumination.

Photo Observation #10

Theme: Enchanted

Description: In this image, a woman is leaning in towards a glowing crystal ball as her hands also gently hover above the table. This image gave me a mysterious vibe while also capturing wonder and magic . The way the ball glows and lights the woman’s face as she looks into the viewers eyes also makes it feel all the more mystical.

3. Ethereal

4. I chose this photo for etherial because the way the light was on the mountains conveyed a feeling of delicacy and pristine-ness to the environment, almost as though it has never been touched.  In a way, this picture reminds me of lace in the way that it gives light, while still shading the image- like how one can see through the lace’s holes, but still see the darkness or the substance of the lace.

 

4 Seasons Project

DAKOTA IN THE WINTER AT NOON

The goal of this design was to give the impression that the light was hitting the figure from the sky at winters soon , slightly after solar noon and hitting them from the ground as well because snow reflects light.

HAWAII SUMMER AFTERNOON

The goal of the design is to get a warm wash from angles that show the sun is not setting but is no longer at solar noon either. Also get some reflection from the water.

Photo Observation #10

Location: Natural Light Show in Japan

Photo Credits: Takehito Miyatake

This picture gives off an enchanted mood. There are a bunch of mini lights all spread out around the forest’s ground. They are lit up a yellow/green color and their light is projected up under the trees. This makes the tree trunks lit up as well as their leaves, causing them to have a greener color. I thought it was interesting because although the light is being projected from below the object, it doesn’t give off a spooky mood. The micro lights look as if they can be little fairies gathering in the woods.

Lighting Observation 10

1. 4/17/2018, 12:45 A.M. In Alliance Hall

2. My keyboard is a mechanical keyboard with changing colors underneath. It can be edited through software to change to the moods of fire, to ripple with green acid, to flow with a rainbow. All of these have different lighting effects with cools and warm lighting.

3. All of the functions add the effect of calm warmness to you. From the cool tones chiming on the keys or the transition of the rainbow across my keyboard as I watch it. It’s like my own little light show in my room which makes me very happy.

Lighting Observation 11

  1. 4/16 10 am Lowe 201
  2. There are no lights on in the room, so the little light illuminating the room is from the hall and the gray exterior
  3. The warm light from the hall is dominated by the cooler light coming from the gray exterior of the room where it is raining painting the room in a dark, gray, drab, and somber tone.  

Lighting Observation #10

  1. April 9th / 10PM / Peninsula Boulevard
  2. A completely empty highway without any lighting except a single streetlamp far in the distance.
  3. As I drove back to campus after a trip home, I noticed the street was dangerously dark. My fear only rose when I noticed the streetlight glowing down the street. The amber light was soft and lit a wide area.

Light Observation #9 – Two Different Skies

  1. Date: 3/30/18, Time: about 7 pm, Location: JCPenney @ Roosevelt Field Mall
  2. I walk outside of JCPenney into the top level of the parking lot and the sky is split: one side is a sunset, the other is cloudy with drizzling and a rainbow.
  3. I come out of the mall with a friend of mine after an evening of young adult chicanery, when I look to my right, only to see a gray sky with rain and the faintest image of a rainbow. I look to the other side and there is a bright orange sunset looming over in the distance. The sky could not decide how it would be painted, so it chose both sides, each a sight in their own unique way.

Lighting Observation #10

  1. April 12, 2018  – 11:50pm – Estabrook Hall
  2. I am laying in bed looking at my wall. The small lights hanging are wrapped around gold leaves. This is the only source of light in my room. The light is a light tan color.
  3. These lights provide a tranquil mood in my room. The light makes the gold leaves look as if they themselves are glowing. It reminds me of a rich decorated palace where the mood would be tranquil and there would be gold everywhere.
