4) This photo didn’t take me long to find, once I realized that a single light source is often keyworded as a ‘dramatic portrait’. I liked this photo because it is not really determinable where this boy is, the background is dark and blurry so that your eye focuses on the child. I also enjoyed that the single light source was emphasized by the shadow cast on the wall behind the child.

  4. It is unclear what the exact source of light is. And yet, the light is hitting this girl in such a way that it brings out an inner warmth of sorts. With the light hitting her on the side of her body, it creates  an outline of light, almost giving off a radiant glow.

2) Found the image from Pinterest. The photographer is Julia Hetta, a Dutch photographer who is a graduate Gerrit Rietveldt Art Academy in Amsterdam. http://artfucksme.com/julia-hetta/

4) DESCRIPTION: It took me some time to find a decent photo that only had one light source. First I had picked a different photo by the same photographer, however I was worried there was actually another light source involved. I liked this photo not only because it meets the requirements of being one light source, but it has a nice soft feeling to it. This feeling comes from the color scheme of the photo and also how the light hits the model’s face.

Description: This is the iconic album cover for Queen II. The white light source seems to be above the band members and creates an almost baleful feeling. Due to the shadows cast over the men, we can’t see their bodies or eyes, just the outline. The diamond formation also adds to the “Easter Island Head” motif.

  3. The lighting in this photo is interesting to me because of the variation in shades.  With the mystery of the shadow and intrigue of the light, the model looks as though she’s longing for something. I think the fact that there is the key light heightens the drama and enhances the mystery and the emotional impact of the model.

4. The white light that is just out of the frame of this photo creates interesting shadows on the face of the model. The shadows cast on the model in this photo cause him to have a sinister yet sad feel to him. It makes the person looking at the photo think that he may be either up to something or he is a survivor of something traumatic.

William Bragg Photography – Single Light Source

I like this photo because of how the light source is hitting his face from the far side. His left side of his face is so bright that we cannot see the detail. And then the right of the face dissolves into the blackness of the background. I also like that this photo is in black and white. It allows for the levels of light to stand out. One can see how the light is shaping itself around the face.

Theme: Single Light Source

A woman is standing in the distance. She is standing on one leg with the other bent behind her. One of her arms is resting against the wall, while the other creates a circular shape above her head. All of her surroundings are covered by darkness. There is one white light that hangs above her head though. The light is projected onto certain aspects of the woman’s body. The light highlights a side of her face, a part of her chest, her fingers, and the top of her bent leg. The light also is projected onto the black floor in front of the female. This picture is interesting because it is so dark, yet highlights specific shapes. The dancer in the distance looks mysterious because you can’t tell what she really looks like, and it makes it more intriguing the more you look at it.

  3. When i learned that the theme was single subject – single light source, i immediately thought of this photograph of Marilyn Monroe. I love how she is sitting in a very elaborate costume backstage beneath a stage light just sipping a cup of coffee. It is the perfect set up of a picture and captures such a simple moment.
