Winter Afternoon in Alaska

This picture was taken at 2:30 pm in Alaska, the sun already beginning to set. I chose this picture because of the bright blue light on the snow, and the warm sunlight peaking over the mountains.

Summer

July 18th, 2016, Seabrook, NH

Summer

The sun was setting over the marsh on a beautiful sunny day spent at the beach. I had never felt happier than I did watching this sunset, despite “losing” my keys. I actually locked them in my car. This was the greatest summer ever!

Light Observation

  1. 4/5/17, around 12 AM, one of those streets near South campus
  2. There was a very bright, white streetlamp that was lighting up the entire road. It made me focus on a short white gate in front of a house. There was a tree between the house and the gate, the trunk was painted white for some reason. I moved into the street and where from my point of view the top of the white part of the trunk ran along the same line as where the roof of the house began. The sky was almost looking purple with the orange light pollution mixing with the grey clouds.
  3. My exhaustion was starting to show when I looked across the street and saw a tree trunk painted white. It was glowing in the bright white light beaming down from the streetlamp. The area of the road was clearly lit for more than 30 feet… it looked like daytime at midnight. I felt delusional.

Surreal

2. This photo is by Benoit Paille, a photographer based in Montreal.

3. Surreal

4. The light source is levitating in the middle of the woods and hitting the thin trees with a warm yellow glow. It is strangely emitting light from every direction, even to the trees that stand behind it. It makes me wonder where the light came from and what it wants.

Light Observation

  1. 3/29/17, around 7 PM, outside of my building
  2. Rych cancelled class so I spent pretty much the whole day inside getting work done. I left my building around the time of the sunset. It wasn’t spectacular, just average. Everything seemed very fresh in the fading sunlight.
  3. The almost humid air felt velvety on my skin as I walked across the road in the fading light. It was getting darker, the world looked almost silver, very clean. It looked like a fresh summer evening.

Spook

  1. This is a still from the 2016 movie Hush. (94% on Rotten Tomatoes)
  2. Spooky
  3. The photo is from a heart-pounding thriller, and this moment captures the climax. The woman is sitting in her dark bathroom, only the “moonlight” illuminating her. The lines from the shade point towards her. It is spooky because of the shadows and lack of light, and the light source makes the room a cool grey blue.

Lighting Observation

  1. 3/16/17, 7:24 AM, boyfriend’s bedroom
  2. The blinds were shut on the window directly in front of his bed, facing the street. The sunrise still came through. It made the window and the walls glow light yellow.
  3. I woke up two hours before I wanted to and the room was growing brighter as the minutes passed. I looked across the room to one of the three windows. The one behind me and the one to my left did not have much light shining through, but the window directly across was glowing yellow. The walls surrounding it appeared to be shining, and the horizontal blinds made stripes. The sun was rising in the east and flooding the room. I was a little angry at myself for waking up so early, but seeing this light made up for it. It felt very peaceful and calming and I was able to fall back asleep.

Single subject, single light source

2. taken by me 3/10/17, 5:34 PM

3. Single subject, single light source

4. The sunlight came through my dorm window and directly onto my face, making my eyes light up and my face glow. I took a lot of pictures of myself sitting in these warm rays. Eventually I pulled the shades down so the sun wouldn’t be in my eyes.

Warm

  1. Wed. March 8th at 2 am, my friend’s dorm room
  2. The lights were turned off except for a lamp that was pointed at us. The light coming from it was yellow and warm. Our shadows were on the wall and we were dancing to music.
  3. The low glowing light barely lit the room. It caused a very soft, almost fuzzy, illumination. The color was warm. There was motion on the walls from our flailing arms.

Happy!

  1. I took this photo in front of the western unispan on 3/3/17 at 5:13 PM
  2. happy!
  3. The blooming cherry tree is an amazing symbol of the spring to come. Springtime makes me happy; I can’t help but smile just thinking of the sudden warm weather and all of the beautiful blooming flowers. The sun was also setting, which shone a golden light on the petals that was impossible to capture on camera.
