Lighting

| 1 Comment

The first thing I could think of about lighting was the dark, gloomy look in film noir. The latest that I saw was Chinatown. The ending of the film is shot in low lighting, making it difficult to see the surrounding area. Even the characters' faces are covered in shadow sometimes.

i think this is very interesting, i noticed that at the end, at around the 2:30 mark, the use of the sky light and forest darkness are balanced out as the two old guys are talking. It speaks to me metaphorically, that one is bad and the other is good. Good example of use of light.
