Photo Observation #9

  1. Image came from Pinterest https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/31/2e/e4/312ee470adbbe8014f369e1fc7714349.jpg
  1. Surreal
  1. This lighting is surreal because it washes the woman in the unnatural colors of cyan and red. The majority of her hair and body is lit up red, making her look suspicious, sexy, and dangerous. The cyan light adds a mysterious, isolating feeling and looks like a cold shiver all the way up the side of her body and on her face. Overall, the lighting leaves the woman’s personality and emotion a mystery, but it certainly makes her seem bold and important.

  2. Spooky
  3. This photo is spooky because of the creepy Halloween Jack-o-lantern carvings, but more importantly because of the shapes and colors of the light and shadows that the pumpkins create. The light shining through the flesh of the pumpkin has a soft orange and red glow, which establishes a feeling of fear and unease. Also, the shapes of the pumpkins and their carvings create ominous patterns of shadows on the walls that make everything seem mysterious, uncertain, and deceptive.

3. Happy!

4. The lighting in this photo gives me so much happiness. When I think about happy in terms of lighting, I think bright colors. The lighting in this photo mostly consists of the color red, but there are a variety of other colors sprinkled throughout. This is a photo of a crowded street in Hong Kong on Chinese New Year. The lights illuminate the people that walk below them, creating contrast with the darkness of the sky. The lighting gives a sense of happiness because the glowing lanterns and bright colors make it obvious that a celebration is occurring.

 

 

Party House Repetition with Primary Colors

  1. Location: House on Front Street, February 11, 2017 at 10:45 pm.
  2. Objective: A line of LED lights that illuminate red, then blue, and finally green, over and over. They are the only lights on, cascading the the small interior of the house party in the primary colors.
  3. Subjective: As the music and tight crowd was drowning me out, all I could see was the repeating colors of red, blue, and green. These repeating color changes, hurting my eyes with its repetition, made me think about all the times I had been at a party or one of the bars. I would go, arrive, drink, and then head home. Doing this same thing over and over again to find some connection or fulfillment. Sometimes I would, other times I would not. Yet staring into those primary lighting colors made me realize that I would do similar patterns for partying.

Photo #1 Sunset

Red Sky at Night, Shepard’s Delight

Photo taken by me, December 23rd 2016 at Heathrow Airport.

Theme: Sunset

The highlights and shadows of the suns rays give the clouds the appearance of crashing waves across the sky crashing towards the horizon, as the setting suns glow spreads across the horizon like light reflecting on the sea.

Photo Observation #4: Hot as Oranges in Florida

I found this image online. It can be found at flickr.com.

The lighting theme is hot.

Orange, red, and yellow may be cooler in terms of degrees Kelvin but they are associated with warm things like the sun and fire. The big bright hues of the sky reflect the excessive warmth of the lighting. The sky is on fire, red hot. The golden ball of gaseous matter shines like the largest gem and greatest treasure in the sky and makes the sky its hue. It is yellow and white with a hint of orange like a match flame glowing bright to light a candle. It is thus a mass producer of heat parching the landscape like how a used match is charred. It silhouettes and gives a highlight of red to the things beneath it like what a dreamer might imagine the Martian landscape to look like. This red makes the world seem hot like a laser beam has been pointed at everything. The distribution is wide engulfing the entire sky and majority of the landscape in the warm colors and causing the silhouetting to occur. The light source glows with warmth, and the lighting is as hot as a bright red pepper tastes as a consequence.

Light Observation

Time: Sunday evening, around 5:30

Objective Description: I saw a beautiful orange and pink sunset, and when I looked at it again a few minutes later, it had changed to vibrant red.

Subjective Description: As I was leaving Michaels, I looked to the left to see an amazing sunset on the horizon. The sky was a vibrant wash of orange and pink. I attempted to take a picture of it, but the picture couldn’t even come close to capturing its majesty. I looked at the sunset a few minutes later and it had changed completely. It was now nearly the same attention-grabbing red as the stoplights on the road. I couldn’t believe how drastically the sky changed in a matter of minutes. The sunset was such a beautiful surprise and a reminder that change can happen quickly but often has wonderful results.

Big cold city

9am Thursday, 57th st. & 8th ave. NYC

A single red stoplight

At this intersection just below the stoplight was one of those orange chimney-like cones they place over a manhole to vent steam from below the street. The steam was rising and zigzagging in front of the red light, while the light fixture itself wavered slightly in the breeze. It was a stark cold moment that emphasized what can be a cold unfeeling city at times. The light felt lonely only to seemingly wish to be warmed by the steam rising in front of it but never touching.

3. Sunrise/Sunset.

4. Nothing creates a warmer feeling quite like a beautiful sunset. The rich colors of the sun emit a dazzling mix of colors that range from burning reds, bright oranges and stunning yellows. As the sun just sets over the horizon, it sends out a beam of light casting on this fortunate man, who gets to see this wonderful display of light. The beam of light casts down leaving the back of him shrouded in darkness. Behind this man lies a dark and black light, while in front of him is a shining ball of radiance, wait to create a new horizon.

Lighting Observation #11

1. 4/22/14 at around 11:30 at my friend Anthony’s house.

2. Christmas lights hung around his pitch black room. One strand is colored. The other sides of his room are completely dark.

3. Recently my friend moved into a new place that has quite a few problems. One of them being that most of the light blubs were burnt out. Because of this, his room gets shrouded in darkness at night. To eliminate some of the darkness, he uses two long strands of Christmas lights. Two sides of the room is illuminated with a row of colored lights that leave small traces of color on the wall. They leave the wall lit with faint reds, bright yellows, rich greens, brilliant blues, and soft pinks. They occasionally flicker leaving a small portion of the wall in darkness. However, these dimmed lights strikingly light up half of his room very well.  These shining lights are a beauty to look at, with their faint twinkle that brighten the black of the night. We almost don’t want regular lights in his room.
