Research: Find Photos From Flickr

8 Feb

This photo is an exemplary representation of “soft lighting”. The rose that is seen in this photo is low in contrast. In other words, there is very subtle gradiation. The petals receive indirect light, as there is only high lights on the tips of the petals. I think that the lighting is even softer than it should be because this a monochrome photo.

 

This photo is an exemplary representation of “harsh lighting”. The lighting in this photo creates sharped edged shadows, and it also blinds a part of the photo. Solar rays can also be seen, which tells us that the sun is the source of the hard-edged shadows.

 
 
 
This photo is an exemplary representation of “front lighting”. The light sources are in front of the subject, which is the building. This reduces the texture and the depth of the subject, making the photo flat. There is barely any shadow found in this photo, and that is because the shadows fall behind the subject.
 
 
 
 
This photo is an exemplary representation of “side lighting”. The light faces the subject, which is the fruits from the side. This makes the shadow cast on the side of the subject, thus creating more depth and emphasizing texture.
 
 
 
 
This photo is an exemplary representation of “back lighting”. The light hits the subject from the back, which illuminates the area around the subject. This creates a division between the background and the subject, and as seen in this photo, it creates a silhouette.
 
 
 
 
This photo is an exemplary representation of “dawn lighting”.  As you can see, the colour of the sky is a mild gradiation of warm colours, which you can’t see during the day. The subject of this photo is a silhouette of a light house, which shows that the sun is low. 
 
 
 
 
This photo is an exemplary representation of “mid-day lighting”. In this photo, there are strong highlights in the cloud and parts of the man’s clothes. In contrary, there are also deep shadows found in the clouds and also the clothing. Mid-day lighting creates sharp edges that bring out the details, as seen in this photo.
 
 
 
 
This photo is an exemplary representation of a “reflection”. In this photo, the lake is the surface. Because the sunlight hits the surface and bounces back again, a reflection of the subject/the background is created. It is also an interesting method because it’s like adding another dimension to a photo.
