Lighting Observation #7

1) DATE-TIME-LOCATION: May 7th, 5pm, Lowe’s raceway

2) OBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: At the movies, its a blackout right after a climactic point in the movie, and theres a cellphone lighting up two rows in front of me.

3) SUBJECTIVE DESCRIPTION: There’s just been a major fight, the villain defeated, i’m ready for the next scene, but a light catches my eye. No, not a light on the big screen, a small screen two rows ahead is blinding me. Distracting, rude, obnoxious. I just want to watch this movie, but now its dark and all I see is the blinding light from the tiny phone.

  1. Fall Sunset in Hawaii

I chose this picture and the lights I did because I really like the purples and dark reds, and oranges that are made up in the sunset in Hawaii. I’ve never gotten to experience a sunset that has purple or creates purple and it really made me want to be right there.

Photo Observation #7

 

  1. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/79938962109075312/
  2. Single Source/Single Subject
  3. I really liked this photo because it adds a lot of mystery. There’s backlight shining on this girl. We really don’t get any details about her or who she is. It’s a very simple photo but yet it still has a lot to say and I really like that. I also like that there’s not a lot of the light shining to begin with which really tightens up what we can see in the photo.
