Value Range Research

I found this in that New Gallery near the class room.
Low Key. ~ I found this in that New Gallery near the class room.
i found this in this staircase on the 11th floor.
High key

My first photograph that I really grab my attention. It was in the new gallery that just created a mood that seemed dramatic and quiet. Overall the whole room seemed mostly around the broad range, but I chose to take a picture of the floor of the gallery. Even though there was light coming from the windows that reflect on the floor, it was still a low key example to use.

I was relieved to capture this particular picture in the staircase on the 11th floor. This is a picture of the wall and the radiator and in between them was shadow but there was lighter around them, so, it was  obviously  a perfect high key spot. Even the picture was easy to tell where the  sunlight was coming from that made this attract me so much more.


Aural Topographies: Research

It was hard for me to draw what I hear in some songs that I enjoy, but I finally found one that’s more smooth and soothing by Celine Dion. Her voice and the music helped me visual picture more. At first I can see wavy and soft lines and small hills forming when she hits her soft high note. The sound does have the same beat and the pattern doesn’t change as she sings with the music.

As I said before, the soft wavy lines are short and more expanded as the music plays in the beginning of the song. Then gets longer with the waves becoming closer together, but not sharp at all. Also, solid lines when things become silent. When the music picks up, not too loud, there are medium sized circles in the middle of the picture. That represents the bass or the drums. As the music fades at the end, the lines fades as well.  It’s more of a Legato song.

A View From My Window : Research

It’s 7 in the morning and it’s a perfect opportunity to describe what I see through my window. Obviously, the sun is still rising, but I can’t really see it rise because it’s blocked by the trees and houses. But. At 6 something a.m. , I can see the colors of the sky change within the two hours. The blending of the colors that appear and the outlines of the clouds sometimes. The colors usually look purplish, orange, reddish, yellowish, or a little pink. It’s amazing to witness how the darkness of the sky transforms with popping of gorgeous colors. Anyway, in the same direction of where I can see the sky are the tallest trees on my street. I would say they’re in my neighbor’s backyards, whom are across the street from my house. I’m shocked til this day by how those trees stayed put through the mighty storms throughout the years. Even shocked that they weren’t cut down because of how tall they are and that can lead to danger of them falling on to the houses. But I HOPE that doesn’t happen. EVER.

Today is pretty windy, so, I can watch the branches sway side to side, left to right slowly or wild like. With the sun still rising, I can see the outline around them better and the details of the inside more from the sunlight poking through it. Moving on, I can see the tannish color side wall of my next door neighbor’s house and part of his concrete front yard. The wall has a long on-going parallel lines which it looks like a rectangle from here. I even see one of my across the street neighbors (that’s in the same view of where the trees are). The house is light blueish that has the same triangle and square structure design as the other houses on my street. Plus,  I can clearly see the cable wires cut between the tan and blue house. Sometimes you can spot a squirrel running along the thin wires. I would say i can enjoy staring pass this window at time to time.
