Photo Observation #10

Taken from: https://www.pexels.com/search/summer/

Summer

I chose this because when I think of summer I think of the beach and sunsets and no cares. I think this photo really summarizes that all up. I really like the sun is the main focus. I really like how it’s the only light source and how its changing the color of everything. It makes the sky and the water orangey. It has a very calm feeling about the whole picture and I really like that about it.

Photo Observation

  

  1. I choose this picture from my phone and it was taken when me and my little sister were at the beach in Rye Playland around August.
  2. Summer
  3. When I think of summer I absolutely think of the beach, mostly because it is my favorite place. Besides the fact I love the beach I choose this picture for other reasons. You can see where the sun is coming from on the right side of the picture because how bright my face is and how much darker my sister’s body is because she is turned away from the light. I can tell the time this photo was taken because of the direction of the sun. When the sun was on the left it was morning and as the day got later it shifted to the right. Considering the sun is on the right side it was most likely late afternoon around 3 or 4. I also love on the the sun makes a reflection os me and my sister in the wet sand. This photo also reminds me of when I would sit by the shore line and admire the rocks and when the sun shine hit the rocks it would shine brightly like crystals. The shinning rocks would be my favorite lighting moment in the summer.

Beach Sunset

  1. I took this photo on January 4th, 2017 at 4:14 pm on Plum Island in Massachusetts.
  2. Sunrise/Sunset
  3. My friend who had recently moved to Indiana came to visit for a few days and she wanted to go to the beach after having been landlocked for so many months. The sunset was very peaceful and light. I had seen better, but this one felt very special and comforting. Light pink clouds took up half the sky and reflected on the surface of the cold water. It was freezing on the beach, but it is the only place we wanted to be.

  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

  • 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.

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:

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.

 

 

Lighting Observation #5: Sand on the walls of Breslin

22 Feb. 2016 – 1:19pm – 2nd story Breslin Hall

The sun shines through a dirty window and also appears to reflect off of the bricks on the exterior of the building some. This shines a textured and patterned light on the interior wall and some grey doors of Breslin Hall. On the slightly peach-colored, off-white wall, the light looks cream, and, on the grey doors, the light looks light greenish with some blue in it.

The lighting is rough and intriguing. It displays a gobo-like pattern on an ordinary surrounding; thus, making the setting endowed with a theatrical magic. No longer are the objects just a wall and some doors; they are gritty like sand and mysterious like ocean waves with splashes of whitish foam and deeper colors. The lighting harkens to the beach with its reflected greenish and cream colors. The wall and doors are foreign objects in a bland classroom building setting with this lighting softly expanding across it. A breath filled with the smell of the ocean and dampness of water can be felt and imagined through this lighting. The lighting is transporting, alluring to the eye, and soothing with its gentle contrast between the light and shapes created by its false gobo.

 TAKEN: By Me

Theme: Sunrise/Sunset

Description: This was taken when i was walking on the boardwalk at Sunken Meadow State Park. My family usually always goes to see the sunset in the summer. There is nothing like feeling the energy and warmth of the sun as it goes down. As it comes down to your line of vision, you cant help but stop in your tracks and appreciate this beautiful scene. It is amazing how warm, calm, happy, excited, emotion, ect. a sunset can make you feel

Coney Island, baby!

AMUSEMENT

I’m a big fan of Coney Island. An amusement park is such an obvious choice for the theme. The lighting is bright and colorful and designed precisely to imbue joy, wonder and “amusement”. What I like about this composite photograph is combining the night time cacophony of color with the singular bright sunlight of the day which highlights the beach goers. A bright sunny day on the beach also imbues the possibility of “amusement”.

4. It is the crack of dawn on a desolate beach, and the sun has begun to light up the deep blue sky.  Shining over the horizon, rays of red, orange and yellow cast down upon the hot sand.  The beaming sun shines down on two lush trees creating long, dark shadows along the ground. The silhouettes of the trees lie on the seemingly blue sand that hasn’t been fully illuminated by the sun’s inviting rays.  The golden light can fool anybody into thinking they are in a dream.

Photo Oberservation #5

1) honolulu nightlife

2) Photo found at………http://www.travelagentcentral.com/oahu-and-honolulu/honolulu-nightlife

3) Theme: Night Life

4) This picture fits the theme of nightlife perfectly because you can see all of the different sizes of the buildings that are lit up around this beach. The lights on the building are reflecting on the ocean. You can see the edge of the sand and all of the small details on the beach such as the palm trees. You can see in the background the shadows of a mountain in the background of this photo. Seeing the lights up on this beach reminds me of people dancing and partying in the resorts. The ocean has a greenish/dark blue color that is from the reflection of the lights. It also looks foggy in the areas of the ocean that are lit up.

Photo Observation

I took this picture of a sunset over the summer. I was struck by the way the light pierced through the clouds making it look as though the sky was on fire. Yet the clouds directly in front of the sun are still in shadow, a siloutte in the forground, lending dimension to the image. The light was reflecting on the tops of the water only, creating depth to the shadows and motion of the waves. The colors of the sunset reflect in the wet sand, which looked as smooth as glass and glowed orange along the beach, reminding me of a  watercolor painting.
