Subject 3: Light and Shadow

Today in the library I came upon the book Film Design by Peter Von Arx which had some great demonstration of the way light and shadow play in the role of film making. As is most obvious in the hands picture, the feeling and emotion conveyed with the hands can be changed so drastically with changes in lighting and shadow. I also enjoy the feelings of negative space, as if the body parts could be in any setting.

I also found this gif online which demonstrates how light can effect the way a face looks
