Taking apart some old LCDs. We’ll have polarizers very soon!
Sunset from above the clouds. See the soft shadow pattern, how the sunlight hits the clouds, leaving the opposite side deep blue as the light reflects from the atmposphere and fills in the shadows.
The diffuse sunlight reflected from the sky seems extremely blue when compared to the yellow of the lantern that tries to mimic the warm flame of an old gas lamp.
When the sun is low, the blue is lost in the direct rays. The sky still reflects a lot of diffuse blue light that tones up the shadows. This is why the background path is flooded with orange, but the red flowers are in cool blue light.
Streetlights save on colour rendering. The house is grey, the snow is white, the dog is brown. Under the streetlights they all look yellow.
Just look at that sunset. Mind the rays falling on the building below and the reflected colour on the bottom of the clouds. The fluorescent lights in the offices on the right are on as well. The glass-facade house on the left acts as a mirror.
Name things that are wrong with this stage lighting. Fixing one might already be enough.
The violet room on the corner.
LED signage put into cultural context.
Moon, streetlights, car headlights. Different light sources in a night scene. See how they work together to create illumination in the street.
A fluorescent luminaire lights a concrete parking garage. The light is very intense on the ceiling next to the tube, but corners of the garage are left in shadow. Most light output scatters around the floor and lower walls.
A lighting pollar casts a well-defined shadow around itself.
