Malibu Sunset

malibu

This warm gradient reminds me of the sunset of a cool season in a hot place like Malibu. The colors I used are not hot enough to evoke a summertime feeling. I avoided intense reds or oranges and tried to blend softer warm shades. I tried to put the blues of the top and the pinks and oranges of the bottom on the model at different angles to immerse her in the fading sunlight.

Mexico

MexicoLight

The lighting I used for this is simple and bright. The blue sky is cloudless like the sky normally is in Mexico. Beachy daylight can be seen around the bottom which reminds me of sand. There are only two lights in the cyc because the colors of summer are generally less dynamic than the colors of fall or spring when the sun is out. I chose to shine a lot of light on the model since the sun is so bright.

New England Winter

 Converted_file_610e944d

I think of dull colors when I think winter in New England. It was challenging to not make the lighting look like death. It still kind of look like death but I was going for an overcast setting, so I used a soft shade of blue and some grays. Downstage of the model is a cream-colored light so that she is illuminated but doesn’t blend into the backdrop and look like a ghost.

Maine Sunrise

This effectively portrays the mood of a Maine sunrise because the pink and blue gradient looks like the sky at dawn and the atmosphere is cool like Maine. The pink is not too warm. It reminds me of a fresh start.
