- The Majestic Theater, yesterday, during Phantom of the Opera’s “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again”.
- Christine was alone on stage for the first time in the entire show, and the only two lights on were a spotlight on her, and a flood light on her father’s grave.
- The simplicity of the lighting design made that song even more powerful, anything more complicated would have deterred from what was happening on stage. It made the moment even more emotional and grand at the same time. It was truly beautiful.
I got this photo from Jaclyn Marie Photography’s blog. (https://jaclynmariephoto.wordpress.com/design-work/)
The theme is Advertisement Model/Desire.
The lighting is mysterious and makes the picture interesting . The figure is lit to emphasis her fabulous arched back position that is elegant like a bird. The light encourages the viewer to appreciate the dancer’s form with its bright and intense limited use of light. The light calls attention to this dancer like they are the star in the night sky. The lighting only shows certain body parts of the dancer; it is selective in its focus. This select focus makes the star image even greater. “Don’t you want to be a star” the lighting and photo call out to the spectator. Thus, the desire in this advertisement is establish through its lighting of a model.
3. Single Artificial Light Source.
4. The ray of a spotlight is the quintessence of a single artificial light source. This one majestic beam of light can tell many stories, setting he mood for any scene. As the dark surrounds the room, the bright and conical ray lights a specific area making that subject the focal point. It shines down white beams of light and casts a blue glow around the area. The simplicity of this light wouldn’t distract and audience. Its only purpose is to highlight who is under the spot. This simple white light can turn an ordinary actor into the star of the show.
