Lighting Observation #1

  1. January 31, 2018 – 5:43pm – Hofstra University’s Intramural Field
  2. I am standing in the parking lot looking at Hofstra’s Intramural Fields. It is completely dark outside. The streetlight in front of me is tilted sideways casting light upon the bottom of a tree to its right. Only the bottom right branches are lit up orange. The lighting highlights all of the tiny details of the main branch, and everything else around it is in darkness.
  3. The lighting gives off a dark mood. The tiny, skinny branches that are highlighted by the light look as if they are a mysterious creature’s claws emerging from the dark. Nothing can be seen in the distance, and there is a sense of hopelessness. The orange light itself, creates a feeling of comfort, yet the light it gives off gives the viewer a sense of fear.

Lighting Observation

2/17/15, 11:30pm, Intramural Fields

It was a FREEZING night as I walked back to Colonial Square from rehearsal. The intramural fields were quite a sight: Freezing rain had poured on the already snowy fields earlier that day. The result was an expanse of shiny, glazed-looking ground, riddled with footprints. 3 large lights on the field shown on the sorbet floor, which reflected their light all the way to the edge where the snow met the sidewalk. It looked welcoming but also deceptive: Three trails were lit to walk across the intramural fields, but anyone who fell for the trick of the lighting would no doubt slip and fall flat on his face.
