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.

Lighting Observation #1

  1. 2/2/17, 5:32 pm, the NAB
  2. The sun was setting, casting an orange light on the front of the NAB. The trees behind Lowe had cast a shadow on the NAB.
  3. Walking with squinting eyes to rehearsal due to the blinding sun, I look up at the NAB. The shadow that the trees had created on the NAB, cutting through the warm orange glow the sun created, was very settling. The lighting was comforting, giving the impression that the day was almost at an end. The warm, pleasant light was slowly fading and the darkness of night was welcomed.

4. This is a photo of a sunset on the ocean in Tortola. As the sun sets, a yellow reflection of light is seen on the water. The light shining through the clouds gives the picture a calming feeling. The soft glow of the setting sun creates a tranquil scene.

4. This photo shows a sunset with lots of purple light. I really enjoy the contrast between the yellow, orange and purple. The symmetry of the photo really helps with the lighting to make it a really peaceful picture to look at.

 

 

Sunset Aesthetic

4. The sunset itself drew feelings reminiscent of a Van Gogh painting. The colors are two that are not typically seen together in artists’ works, but are visually compelling when seen in a sunset. The cumulonimbus clouds have the same aesthetic as the works of Monet and the impressionist era.

 

Beach Sunset

  1. I took this photo on January 4th, 2017 at 4:14 pm on Plum Island in Massachusetts.
  2. Sunrise/Sunset
  3. My friend who had recently moved to Indiana came to visit for a few days and she wanted to go to the beach after having been landlocked for so many months. The sunset was very peaceful and light. I had seen better, but this one felt very special and comforting. Light pink clouds took up half the sky and reflected on the surface of the cold water. It was freezing on the beach, but it is the only place we wanted to be.

Photo Observation 1

This picture was taken by me on January 7, 2014 on the 210 freeway headed west.

Sunrise/Sunset

The sunset was very orange, more than I had ever seen, and I remember looking at it and getting excited because we were on our way to LA to see The Lion King at the Pantages Theatre. The sunset reminded me a lot of the sunrise at the beginning of the movie. It filled the sky so there was no color other than the orange and yellow from the sunset. It reflected off all the cars sitting in traffic with us, making it hard to see because everything was so bright.

3) I was walking back from the gym one day and the light from this gorgeous sunset touched my face, filling my heart with a sense of joy and hope. The colors filled me with warmth and I no longer shook with cold. Sunsets have always brought me joy and this one was no exception.

Photo Credit: John Poppleton, http://www.ufunk.net/en/photos/body-painting-black-light/ (Check out this link, all of the photographs are really cool.)

Theme: Surreal

Description: The first thing I think of in terms of lighting when I hear surreal is blacklights, or UV lights. UV light looks crazy, like someone took normal light and turned it on its head. It makes the subjects look very strange and almost alien-esque.

This is surreal because the sunset is not something you typically see on a human body, and the human body isn’t usually blue, either. The blacklight cast on the woman’s back makes a sharp contrast between her plain skin and the painting, so it really comes to life. The orange light in front of her mixes with the blue color on her body and mimics the some of the pink and purple colors in the painting in her face and hair. It looks very otherworldly and surreal.

A Spring Sunrise in Montauk

vllpic000001

This reminds me of the sunrise because right before the sun comes up there are beautiful shades of red and blue that fill up the sky. In this picture the sun is starting to come up that is why she is lit the way she is. She is lit in all white to show the brightness of the sun.

Noon on a Hot Summer Day in Hawaii

vllpic000001

When i think of a hot summer day in Hawaii i immediately go to the beach. I lit my actors like they were at the beach with the backdrop being the sky that is right over the water. There are some turquoise colors that are on the cyc that show how tropical the area is.

Winter Afternoon in Maine

vllpic000001

To me, winter in Maine could be very beautiful. There are still blue skies that have some white in it because of the light reflecting off the snow. This man is walking on a very cold day with snow on the ground
