Virtual Light Lab: Four Seasons

2. Spring Sunrise on Long Island

4. Winter Afternoon in Alaska

Lighting Observation 10

  1. 4/9/2017, 4:30 PM, NAB Black Box
  2. The lighting designer for the dance concert was trying to program cues but forgot to add a cue for the scroller to change and it made every color appear on the stage in quick succession.
  3. As the LD was going through her cues before we ran Anita’s piece, she hit “Go” and suddenly the scrollers went through every single color available. It was a very funny moment as it took everyone by surprise and left the designer a bit flustered. Everyone was able to laugh about it and it was a nice break from the stress of the day.

Photo Observation 10

  1. This picture was taken by me on the Ferris Wheel at the Santa Monica Pier on August 5th.
  2. Theme: Summer
  3. This picture says summer because of the bright sun, bright colors, and the fact that it was taken on a beach. One of my favorite places to go during the summer is the Santa Monica Pier because it isn’t expensive and there is so much to do. The bright colors of Amber’s romper, the Ferris Wheel, and the sky are the epitome of summer and radiate warmth and fun.

Lighting Observation 9

  1. 3/5/17, 5:50PM, Lowe 216
  2. The sunlight was coming in through the window and the color of Bree’s iced tea made the desk look pink.
  3. As the sun was beginning to set, it began streaming in through the window. Bree set her passionfruit iced tea down on the desk, the sun hit it at just the right angle and it made her white desk look pink. It was a nice moment and a break from the stress of the day.

Photo Observation 9

  1. By Laura Williams from http://designspiration.net/image/1600175502147/
  2. Surreal
  3. This picture is surreal because the position of the mirror makes it seem like the girl’s body has disappeared. The lighting helps this by adding a glowing effect, making it seem as though she is something out of a dream.

Lighting Observation 8

  1. 3/25/17, 10:30 PM, On the highway near the western border of New Jersey
  2. A car coming toward me on the highway had its high beams on.
  3. I was driving home from my spring break road trip when I saw a car headed toward me with its high beams on. It was blinding and made it even harder to see the road in the darkness. Being from California, most people have no use for high beams because the freeways are lighted. My roommate had to explain to me that the highways couldn’t be lighted because of the weather and how much upkeep it would require to light highways that were not in metropolitan areas. It was a learning experience, not only about how streets are lighted, but also how annoying it is when people aren’t polite and turn off their high beams when they see people coming toward them.

Photo Observation 8

  1. Taken by me in 2014
  2. Theme: Spooky
  3. This was taken by me when I came home one night after a rehearsal and my cat was looking at me in a very judgmental way. It felt very spooky because she was acting somewhat like a human. The only light that was on was the tiny side lamp next to the couch which my mom left on so I could get inside safely.

Lighting Observation 7

  1. America’s Center Convention Complex, St. Louis, MO; 3/8/17; 8:15 PM
  2. At the USITT Conference last week, the floor show had tons of lights, mostly red and blue, shining on the ceiling with many different gobos in them, most notably one that looked like scribbles.
  3. As I was looking around the thousands of people in the crowd, I looked up and saw a blue light in a squiggly line. It was by far the most interesting and unique gobo I had ever seen and It made me feel really excited for the conference as I was sure I was about to learn about tons of brand new theatrical technology. I managed to remember to take out my phone and write down what I was seeing so I could make it a lighting observation later.

Photo Observation 7

  1. I took this picture of my dog in December.
  2. Theme: Single subject single light source
  3. This was taken right after we brought our new puppy home for the first time. The sun had just gone down and in our excitement we only turned on the one light above our TV. He was so wiped out that he fell asleep right after we fed him and I took this picture.

Lighting Observation 6

  1. Wednesday, 3/8, 6:28 PM; Marriot Hotel in St. Louis
  2. Green lighting on a building across the street.
  3. I was sitting in the hotel room, waiting to head over for the opening of the USITT Conference, when I looked out the window to see a bright green light. It was pointed from the ground up the face of the building, making the Romanesque architecture stand out even more. It gave the columns long shadows that stretched up the front of the building making them appear larger and more ominous. The color of the light was very striking, as bright green is not a light color that is normally found in nature. I watched the light up until we had to leave and head over to the expo hall and it made me feel excited for all of the incredible theatrical technology I was about to discover.
