3. Happy!

4. The lighting in this photo gives me so much happiness. When I think about happy in terms of lighting, I think bright colors. The lighting in this photo mostly consists of the color red, but there are a variety of other colors sprinkled throughout. This is a photo of a crowded street in Hong Kong on Chinese New Year. The lights illuminate the people that walk below them, creating contrast with the darkness of the sky. The lighting gives a sense of happiness because the glowing lanterns and bright colors make it obvious that a celebration is occurring.

 

 

Lighting Observation

  1. 2/2/17, 2:20 pm, Axinn Library
  2. Objective: I was in the quiet section of the Axinn library in the afternoon. I was sitting in a cubicle close to the large glass windows facing Davinson Hall. The sun was shining into the library and onto the nearby cubicles. The shadows that the trees cast came through and onto the cubicles as well.
  3. Subjective: The dullness of the quiet room in Axinn was cut by the glow of the sunlight coming through the wall of glass windows. The shadows of tree branches that fell onto my cubicle provided some relief from the strong rays of the sun. This transformed the dreary feeling of the room and gave it some animation.

3. Theme: Shadows

4. When I think of shadows I usually think of the ways they are manipulated in photography. The positioning of the light combined with the placement of the object can be used to alter the shape of the shadow being cast. This is what I think is the most interesting aspect of shadows. Manipulating the shadows can create a more ambiguous shape, unrelated to the actual object casting the shadow.

Lighting Observation

  1. 2/21/17, 6:54, Times Square
  2. Walking through Times Square, I can see a wide variety of neon signs hanging off of the buildings around me. The light coming from the signs is being reflected onto the glass windows of the surrounding buildings.
  3. As I pass through the bustling crowd of Times Square, I look up and notice the neon signs that decorate almost every building around me. These signs glow red, green, yellow, and a multitude of other colors. As I turn my head to take in all of the architecture around me, I realize that the glowing light coming from the signs is being reflected onto several buildings around them. The array of colored light bouncing off of the buildings brought life to what would have otherwise been a dark and dull cityscape.

3. Mysterious

4. The lighting in this photo, or lack thereof, gives a mysterious feeling to the photo. A specific image comes into my mind when I hear the word “mysterious”. It is the image of a room lit only by a single light, leaving the rest of the contents of the room unrevealed. The unknown in this photo is what I think gives the photo a mysterious feeling. The only light in the room is coming from the door. This light is minimal and partially blocked by the person standing in the door. The back lighting on the person turns them into a shadowy figure instead of lighting their features. This photo fits the theme of mystery because of the small sliver of lighting in the room leaves the rooms content and the person standing in the doorway a mystery.

 

Lighting Observation

  1.  2/16/17, 3:47 pm, sitting on the bench outside of Davison Hall
  2. Objective Description: The sun was shining through the trees behind Hofstra Hall. The light squeezed between the branches of the tree and lit up the area where the bench was located.
  3. Subjective Description: The light shining in between the branches casts scattered light on all of the surrounding objects. Warm rays of yellow and orange brightened the entire area. The speckled light combined with the surrounding nature created a peaceful environment.

2. http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2015/03/new-york-after-midnight.html       This photo came from a NY magazine.

Photographer: William P. Gottlieb

3. Theme: Night Life

4. Description: In this photo there are only a few lamp posts lighting the street. Most of the light is coming from the neon signs hanging from the buildings. The neon light is reflecting off of the water on the road, and shining on the cars. This light consists of many bright colors, bringing life to the street at night. This photo fits this theme because neon lights demonstrate that even at night, the city is still alive and bustling.

Lighting Observation

  1. 2/9/17, 5:36 pm, Estabrook Hall
  2. OBJECTIVE: In the lounge on the 13th floor of Estabrook, the sunset is peaking through the clouds and coming in through the windows. The light coming from the sunset passes through the icicle, creating shadows on the couch.
  3. SUBJECTIVE: As the snowstorm departs, the sun begins to slowly make its way out of the clouds. The sky fills with colors as the sun slowly sets into the horizon, filling the room with a calming feeling. As the clouds continue to pass, the light shines through the icicles left hanging on the window from the storm. This creates specs of light scattered around the room and casts shadows the shape of the icicles on the couch. The wide array of colors within the sunset leaves a warm and comforting feeling in the room after the departure of the intense storm.

  2. Cold
  3. The lighting in this photo consists of mainly cool tones. The cool toned lighting surrounding the chair combined with the concrete walls give the room a sense of coldness. The blue light bouncing off of the concrete wall emphasizes the bleakness of the room. The lack of warm colors further gives the room an icy feeling.

Lighting Observation #1

  1. 2/2/17, 5:32 pm, the NAB
  2. The sun was setting, casting an orange light on the front of the NAB. The trees behind Lowe had cast a shadow on the NAB.
  3. Walking with squinting eyes to rehearsal due to the blinding sun, I look up at the NAB. The shadow that the trees had created on the NAB, cutting through the warm orange glow the sun created, was very settling. The lighting was comforting, giving the impression that the day was almost at an end. The warm, pleasant light was slowly fading and the darkness of night was welcomed.
