Photo Observation

1. drama 16 single source light 2


3. Spooky

4. Owls are spooky creatures. They hunt their prey at night, they can rotate their head 180 degrees, and they’re silent when in flight. what makes this photo spooky, however, isn’t the owl itself. the way the owl is lit is very eerie. Its lit from behind with a faint white light from the moon. You can tell its an owl only from its silhouette. The light doesn’t show any of its gorgeous features only the dark mysterious body of this spooky creature.

Light Observation #9

1. 11:14 PM April 27th, 2013 – Netherlands Courtyard

2. My friends and I just got back to campus from a lovely but short visit home for Spring Break. I look up at the sky and I see a full moon beaming down at us, filling the sky with a blue haze, accenting the edges of the clouds.

3. It is cold outside. Campus feels like a ghost town. As my friends and I lug our bags all the way through the never-ending courtyard, I feel the eyes of Big Brother watching. His beaming eye see’s past the clouds and through the tree’s. Though nature is obstructing, nothing can hide from his sight, for the cold light blue of his eye pierces through everything, twisting itself through the branches casting shadows against the pavement and frozen grass. We are freezing and it is late. We’ve been traveling for the entire day. All we want is to lie down and rest, but Big Brother is awake and refuses to allow darkness take over the land. He has made it known that only a roof and a window with blinds will provide us with a truly peaceful slumber.

Lighting Observation #7

1. 3:30 AM, March 9th, 2013 Calkins Quad

2. The moonlight, helped by a single white spotlight, stretches out across the quad.

3. My friend and I decided to go for a walk late at night because we felt like being spontaneous. We wanted to go on an adventure. A journey. We found ourselves walking along south side campus, nothing out of the ordinary until we reached Calkins Quad. Finally, the moment we had been waiting for was right in front of us. Discovery. Although we both knew the effect was caused by a light frost and the moonlight, the quad looked as though a billion stars had fallen from the sky and landed on the ground. It was enchanting. We slowly walked step by step to the center of the abyss of stars. Looking around we saw millions of little prisms of light flickering like glitter. It was magical, as if we had walked into a fairy forest. Standing in the quad, in the early hours of the morning, we were filled with the joy and excitement one gets while on a journey. Although, we were no Harry Potter or Frodo Baggins, looking at the sight of our surroundings, you would have thought we were in an enchanted forest.

Light Observation 2- Week 4

1) 2/24/11, 2:23am, My room

2) Objective: The moonlight shining on my ceiling.

3) Subjective: As I’m laying in bed, completely in the dark and looking up at the ceiling, the moonlight has my attention. It shines through my closed blinds and on my ceiling. It’s so bright and luminous that I can’t turn away.It draws my attention in a room so dark that all I see is the light. It turns a dark room into a bright cooling sensation.
