Light Observation

  1. 4/11/17, 9:30 pm, outside of CV Star.
  2. I was outside and it was dark but I noticed there was a big bright white light, it was the moon.
  3. I just got out of class and I was walking when I noticed a shinning light reflecting off of my phone screen and when I looked back there was the moon. It may sound simple and cliche but it was beautiful. Usually I think of the sun shinning bright in the sky especially when it’s nice weather. The moon caught my eye mostly because it was a full moon. Sometimes when there is a full moon it’s yellow and has more of a darker tone. It illuminated my surroundings. I love the color white and in my eyes the moon was shinning big, bright, and white.

Light Observation #6

  1. Looking out my dorm room window towards Oak Street on March 9 at 5:30pm.
  2. I was looking out at a slight sunset over the trees, but the sky was mostly still blue witth only a little bit of faded orange towards the bottom. The moon as also visible, as well as a few clouds.
  3. Looking out the window at the end of a long day, I couldn’t help but feel like the sky mirrored by feeling of weariness as the big heavy mass of blue put all of its weight on the faint glow of orange at the horizon. The shadow of the barren trees only added to the dreary scene. But way up in the sky there were some faint clouds and a vibrant white moon that provided a glimmer of brightness and hope.

Lighting Observation 2

1) Wednesday, 2/8/14, 11:15PM, Outside the Spiegel

2) The white moon, surrounded by clouds, almost full.

3) I looked up as I was waiting to get into Cabaret and I saw the moon peeking out from some clouds. I started thinking about how everyone was so sure that it wasn’t actually going to snow in the morning, but the encroaching clouds said otherwise. I was excited to have the day off from classes to be able to play in the coming snow. As I stared at the moon, the clouds slowly started to cover it, glowing softly and lighting up the sky.

Photo Observation: 4/8


This is a picture I took at Hampton Beach in New Hampshire.

Theme: Gentle

Description: The soft tones of the water colored sky envelope the sands and gentle-moving waves with a blanket of warmth. The distant puffed clouds of white become colored with a hue of pink as the setting sun reflects effortlessly off of the deep, blue sea. The sky is calm, void of rapid movements and impending storms, the clouds are dispersing to their caverns of sleep. The ocean, exhausted from showing off its tall, strong waves reaches goodbye to the sinking sand as the soft-foaming edges sing the seagulls to sleep. An ombré of darkness from top to bottom, the moon makes her promised cameo as the sleep-deprived sun takes its curtain call for the night. All is at peace.


Photo Observation #8: Spooky Moon



This photo was taken by me.

The theme is spooky and it fits this theme because it looks like it could be taken out of a spooky scene from a horror or Halloween film.

The lighting is white and bright like a space alien’s ship coming to abduct someone or that horridly spotless idea of the future that many films attempt to portray. The bright lighting depicted in the animated film Wall-E for inside the space ship where the lazy humans are is similar to this bright moonlight. The light is expansive causing a soft halo to surround it in the night sky. The brightness at night also is spooky because night is meant to be dark in the minds of many. This bright moonlight might peer into a window and wake people up like how the people were wakened up during the Light Riots. The light backlights the tree making it a shadowy silhouette. Moonlight has a history of spookiness with witches flying across it, cows jumping over it, and werewolf’s howling to it; this moonlit picture harkens back to this tradition with the light’s boldness and the silhouetted tree’s bareness. The white light and lingering halo of grey contrast with the night-time blackness like a mysterious power; this starkness and utter lack of an array of colors and stark would be enough to spook a child into hiding under the covers. For all a little child knows, this could be the eye of a huge monster coming to destroy it; and the power (high value) and abundance of this light makes it imposing. The dead, dark world that some might think exists in blackness comes back to life with the bright glow of the moon. However, it is not as alive as day; it is like a half-life or perhaps undead life. After all, in the total dark, one cannot see that the world does not look as alive as the day, but in partial light one can. Thus, the lighting in this picture is spooky as it is a sign that scary things might be out and since it makes things that look bright and alive during the day appear dead, creepy, and unnerving through the limited, bright, far-reaching, and contrasting with the dark surroundings white moonlight.

Light Observation #4

1) 2/26 , 11:30pm, Outside Hofstra USA

2) Moonlight reflected on ice on ground.

3) I was walking home from a late night in the studio when I looked up in the sky and noticed a bright white moon shining down and lighting the path ahead of me. However, the most remarkable part of the walk was that every time I walked by a pool of ice, it would reflect up the light from the moon. Near Hofstra USA there was one particular patch of ice that was really big. When I walked by it, the entire thing illuminated in a shiny white light.  We’re not used to seeing light coming up from the ground below us, and it was like I was standing on a sea of light.

Photo Observation #6 – The Night Sky

1. 800px-Night_Sky_Stars_Trees_02


3. Inspiring.

4. The world is full of many inspirations, but nothing compares to the twinkling of the night sky.  Most people can spend hours stargazing and making wishes upon the bright, dazzling stars. The stars watch over us at such an incredible height with their white lights cascading over the earth, bringing light to the dark sky. The stars surround the equally beautiful moon that reflects the light from the sun. The moon and the stars are a wonderful contrast to the dark sky by illuminating the night with their intense white light. Their vibrant glow lights the way for us to follow our dreams.

Light Observation 12

1) 4/25/13, 12:15 AM In front of the Emily Lowe quad

2) A pitch black sky. The moon shines through, a small blue ring of sky around it. It looks hazy and fuzzy, almost distorted.

3) Stepping off the unispan I looked up into the sky, wish I was back in Connecticut so I could see at least one star in the night sky. I just saw black. Complete darkness. It was kind of disheartening. I started walking toward Lowe and looked up again right by the quad. Just over the playhouse I saw a sliver of light, but it obstructed. I maneuvered around slightly until I could see it. The moon acting as the only thing in the sky. It wasn’t bright, or happy, or hopeful. It was just there. It was a dull moon, obscured slightly by something that gave it a hazy effect. There wasn’t much emotion to it at all. So why did it stick with me? Because I was expecting to have emotion from it, but didn’t. But then, does lack of emotion count as portraying a feeling? Can you influence someone into feeling nothing? Dull? Flat?

Light Observation 7

1) 3/13/13 9:30 P.M. Outside the playhouse

2) The slim crescent of the moon in a black sky without stars. The real light of the moon in contrast to the artificial light of the lamps and buildings

3) Surrounded by light, sometimes we are blind to the reality. What we now view as commonplace is only a production of our needs. The pure heart of the moment is that there may not be light. We take for granted the gifts light has given us. At the same time we have learned to be unaffected by where the orignal light came from. Seeing the pure white light of the moon, however small. meek, or hidden, is a reminder of our roots. It shows how far we’ve come.

Light Obervation 5

1) 2/26/13 1:30 A.M. Laying in my bed.

2) Laying in my bed I looked out my window and the moon. The blinds were closed, so I could only see from a certain angle. The moon had a soft white light that I could see but did not reflect into any other part of my room.

3) Seeing the moon at night is almost like seeing a friend after a long time apart. You spend time away from each other but in the back of your mind you are aware of each others existence. You might remember every once in a while and smile while thinking about old times. But when nighttime comes in to your life and a feeling of solitude creeps up, you realize that your friend is still there. He may have changed since last time, but he is still there. Even when you can’t see the moon, it is always present and it will turn up when you need it to during the dark, as a warm, inviting friend to remind you that you’re not alone.
