Virtual Light Lab: Four Seasons

  1. Fall Sunset in Hawaii

The picture above was my inspiration. I liked the deep purples and bright oranges and how the clouds cover the middle section.

2. Spring Sunrise on Long Island

I chose this picture because I loved the contrast between the blue and the oranges and yellows. I also love that it is on the water and the way in which the sun is reflected.

3. Noon on a Summer Day in New England

I chose this picture because to me, summer means going to the beach. I love the vastness of the ocean and how long the boardwalk seems to be.

4. Winter Afternoon in Alaska

I chose this picture as reference because I liked that you can see the mountains in the background and the color of the sky makes you feel how cold it is.

  1. Sunset in Vermont

Cyc Light: top G150 at full, YELLOW at full

SR Side Light:  G150 at full: 27 degree elevation angle, 12 ft high, 12 feet SR of model, 13 ft throw

Top Light:

  • AP7900 at 50%, 52 degree elevation angle, 21 degree side angle, 17 ft high, 3 ft SL of model, 8 ft downstage, 14 ft throw
  • NC at 80%, 43 degree elevation angle, 17 ft high, 12 ft SL of model, direct sidelight, 16 ft throw

SL Side Light: AP8840 at full, 27 degree elevation angle, 12 ft high, 12 ft SL of model, 13 ft throw

I automatically thought of yellows and pinks when I saw the word sunset so I found a picture of what the actual sunset in Vermont looks like and went off of that. The lighting is bright in the back but softer in the front which I think resembles a sunset quite well.

2. Spring Sunrise in Montauk

Cyc Light: top AP3400 at full, bottom AP7570 at 75% and AP8710 at 30%

Top:

  • AP4650 at 20%, 51 degree elevation angle, 17 ft high, 9 feet SR of model, 14 throw
  • AP8650 at 30%. 61 degree elevation angle, 17 ft high, 6 SR of model, 13 ft throw
  • AP6150 at full, 90 degree elevation angle, 17 ft high, centered, 11 ft throw
  • AP6300 at 50%, 75 degree elevation angle, 17 ft high, 3 ft SL of model, 11 ft throw
  • Ap3300 at full, 51 degree elevation angle, 17 ft high, 9 ft SL of model, 14 ft throw

I picked these colors to reflect those in the picture. I tried to make the bottom of the picture be darker than the top to show the  action of a sunrise with the majority of the light coming from the upper right side of the photo.

Top:

  • AP6150 at full, 52 degree elevation, 21 degree side angle, 17 ft high, 3 ft SR of model, 8 downstage of model, 14 ft throw
  • G720 at full, 54 degree elevation angle direct backlight, 17 ft high, centered, 8 ft downstage, 14 ft throw
  • G470 at 40%, 52 degree elevation angle, 21 degree side angle, 17 ft high, 3 ft SL of model, 8 ft downstage, 14 ft throw
  • G420 at full, 43 degree elevation angle, 17 ft high, 12 ft SL of model, 16 ft throw

SL Side Light: L100 at full, 27 degree elevation angle, 12 ft high, 12 ft SL of model, 13 ft throw

 

With this picture I purposefully lit the cyc to show the contrast between sand and sky to get that beach feeling. I also included many shades of yellow to simulate sunshine and placed a lot of the light directly on the model’s face because bright summer days are usually sunny all over.

4. Winter in Maine

Cyc: top G785 at full, bottom G109 at full

SR Side Light: AP4720 at full, 27 degree elevation angle, 12 ft high, direct sidelight, 13 ft throw

Top:

  • NC at 60%, 52 degree elevation angle, 21 angle side angle,  17 ft high, 3 ft SR of model, 8 ft downstage, 14 ft throw
  • AP6150 at full, 54 degree elevation angle, direct backlight, 17 ft high, centered, 8 feet downstage, 14 ft throw

SL Side Light: AP4630 at 50%, 0 degree elevation angle, 6 ft high, 12 ft SL of model, direct sidelight, 12 ft throw

 

My version of this picture relfects the photo for two main reasons. One is the direct backlight coming from behind the model to show similarity to the sunlight coming from behind the lighthouse. The second is the fade of blue down to white on the sides of the model showing the cold, dry feeling that is obtained by the picture.

  • Top Right AP 3230 Intensity- 22% Angle- 43 degrees AP 2190 Intensity 37% Angle- degrees

The lighting in this image depicts that of a fall sunset in Vermont because these sunsets are known for being purple and orange, while also being soft and not to bright. This image shows gentle purple lighting at the top fading into orange, which represent the sun that would cast an orange hue around the model.

  • Right Top AP 3230 Intensity -22% Angle 43 degrees AP 2190 Intensity-37% Angle 61 degrees

The lighting in this image depicts that of a spring sunrise in Montauk perfectly since at the beginning of a sunrise the orange glow of the sun is at the horizon and the sky always appears a hazy blue color, which is done in this image. The model is also illuminated with a slight orange tint since in the early morning the color of the sun cast soft light on anything in sight.

The lighting depicts that Hawaii in the middle of the day because at that time of day the sky is usually a clear and a bright blue color. The model in this image in glowing a yellow- orange color in order to represent the glow the intense Hawaii sun gives off.

This is a representation of a winter afternoon in Maine; the sky is a grey-blue color the way the sky when it snows. The lighting is very cool to give the feeling of winter.
