Cold Atmosphere Against the Concrete

Theme: Cold

Description: A model is set against a concrete wall, lit by tungsten. The wall is splattered with stains and dabbles of paint, with a thick, sloppy line of blue atop the model’s head. Above the line is a spot of light condensed down. It gives an overcast over the model, illuminating the harsh paleness of her skin and white dress. On the far right, a studio and workbench are peaking behind the concrete wall.

To me, this photo spotlights the beautiful illusion that urban life sells to the populace. You may see the beauty of the city in its shining buildings, represented as the model sitting down. However, as seen behind the model, the city can be cracked, dirty place. That wall is the reality of what most cities attempt to hide with their models/skyscrapers. However, as you live in the city, you cannot escape the dirt and grime.

Theme: Advertisment Model/ Desire

Description: The light in this photo is coming directly from the back through the door that the model is standing in front of. This causes her to look as if she is glowing when combined with the yellow/gold/amber tones that are coming from the other lights or being reflected off of the many jewels and chandeliers in the room. It really is the main light in the back that gives the photo it’s essence. Without it the whole photo would seem dull.

-NC, 43 degree elevation angle, sidelight from stage right at 25% intensity.

-NC, 27 degree elevation angle, sidelight from stage right at 25% intensity.

The shadings used in this photo are used to depict what a sunset in Vermont would look like. A red and a yellow light is shone in the direction the sun is facing representing the warm beams that the sun can create. They fit in with the tree just losing it’s leaves in the autumn. The two faintly lit white lights are used to show that the atmosphere around sunsets aren’t completely bereft of light. The colors used in the backdrop gives a warm feeling that a sunset would normally evoke.

The colors and lighting in this photo depicts a spring sunrise in New England. The warm atmosphere of the beach exhibits features of what spring can look like in the New England. The dark clouds above could possibly show an April shower about to occur. The red and yellow lighting comes from the angle the sun is rising from as it hits the subjects with and amber-ish glow. The two uncolored lights on the side represent the lighting around them. Just because there is one light source in the picture doesn’t mean everything around them is shrouded in shadow. The faint light on their feet is to show the very dim and blue glow upon their feet. The red and the deep golden amber in the backdrop give an aura of what a sunrise would give while the blue and red exhibit the light on the floor of the beach.

3. Noon on a hot Summer day in Brazil.

-RE452 (One Sixteenth White), 37 degree elevation angle, 56 degree side angle, front light stage right at 50% intensity.

 

The shadow angle and sheer brightness in this picture shows what Noon would look like on a hot summer day in Brail. The backdrop exhibits shades of bright pink and pale yellow. These two color combine to create a wonderful shade of white that still exhibits colors of heat. The gold and white colors shine down from the back of the subject casting a bright beam of sunny colors as the sun is at it’s highest peek. The gold represents the sun and the white represents the light the sun emits. This beam of light creates a shadow in front of the subject. The shadow points in the same direction as the lady’s in the picture. The other white lights around the subject exhibit the quality of light that would shine around the subject. They are used to make just there are few shadows around the subject.

4. Winter Afternoon in Alaska.

Top Cyc Lights:

-NC at 50%.

-AP6500 (Bikini Yellow) at 30%.

-G770 (Christel Blue) at Full Intensity.

Bottom Cyc Lights:

-NC at 75%.

-G920 (Pale Lavender) at 50%.

Model Lighting:

-NC, 54 degree elevation angle direct back light, front light center stage at 65% intensity.

-AP3300 (Whispering Lavender), 54 degree elevation angle direct back light, backlight center stage at full intensity.

-AP4800 (Ice Blue), 37 degree back angle, 56 degree back angle, backlight on stage left at full intensity.

-AP4800 (Ice Blue), 37 degree back angle, 56 degree back angle, backlight on stage right at full intensity.

The shadows and cool colors here, represent the winter chill of an afternoon in Alaska. The backdrop uses white and blue on the top to simulate the chill of a winter. Yellow is mixed in with these colors to represent the light of the sun. Pale lavender is used to mix in with the white to give a shadow-like feel. There is use of icy blue colors and lavender, not because of the light but because it adds to the shadow effect that a sun would create at his time of day. The white front light represents the light that would still be around him. In this time of day, his entire body wouldn’t be completely surrounded by darkness.
