  1. Thank you very much for your complete and comprehensive explanation, I hope people like you start writing books so that we students do not get so confused.🌺🌺
  2. Dear friends and Masters, thank you very much for your guidance and answers. Based on your explanation, I conclude that Mr. Herbert Zettl's definitions were not very correct. However, according to my conversation with One of the senior professors, he said that Zettl's definitions are correct and have a scientific aspect. My problem is that more than half of the movies I analyzed were based on his definition, for example where the contrast on the character's face was high, I just analyzed that the fall-off is fast. I think I have to correct these. . Thanks again to all of you
  3. Thank you for your complete explanation, dear master Mullen, you always answer us generously. We owe you. Thank you🌺🌺🌺
  4. Thank you very much for your answer. Yes, as Master Mullen pointed out, this is a semi-hard, semi-soft light
  5. Yes you are right, the overall effect is semi-silhouette and the key light did not have much effect on the overall effect. However, in analyzing my dissertation, I have to point out exactly the quality of the light. Thank you very much for your answer
  6. Thank you very much for your comment, dear Master Mullen. Do you think that Zettl's definitions are correct?
  7. Thank you very much for your answer, the fact is that the author (Herbert Zettl) is highly respected at our university. So my professors insisted that I use the author's definitions. However, you are quite right, it can be explained in a shorter way. Thank you Dear Mr. Santucci
  8. Thank you very much Master Mullen.🌺🌺🌺
  9. Hello Dear friends and professors, please guide me, Unfortunately, I sometimes have trouble recognizing hard and soft light, for example in this image, I'm hesitant whether the light on Paul Newman's face is soft or hard? On the one hand I think this light is relatively soft and on the other hand I say it is relatively hard. My argument for soft light is that the light source is winter light provided by the window so the light should be soft. And my other argument is that the direction of the key light hits the actor from the position of three quarters, and this is a relatively hard light that creates a triangle of light on the face, with dense shadows. I'm really confused. I'm sorry, I know my questions are obvious .Thanks for your help
  10. Hello friends, I'm sorry I had a little trouble defining fall-off, the fact is that in the books on lighting, this is a bit vague; However, Herbert Zettl (a university professor) describes fall-off in his book: We use the term falloff to mean two different yet related light/shadow relationships: the brightness contrast between the light and shadow sides of an object, and the rate of change from light to shadow. Contrast If the brightness contrast between the lighted side of an object and the attached shadow is high, the falloff is fast. This means that the illuminated side is relatively bright, and the attached shadow is dense and dark. If the brightness contrast is low, the resulting falloff is slow the brightness difference between the illuminated side and the attached-shadow side is relatively small. In extremely flat lighting, no contrast at all shows between the so-called illuminated and shadow sides. In this case, falloff no longer exists. Because most flash photography illuminates the subject directly from the front, both sides are often equally bright. Such elimination of the light/shadow contrast— and with it the falloff—results in the typically flat image of such snapshots . Change Calling falloff “fast” or “slow” makes more sense when applied to the rate of change between light and dark, abrupt change from light to shadow represents extremely fast falloff. He also wrote: Spotlights, which have a highly directional beam, produce fast falloff and A highly diffused floodlight produces slow falloff Do you think this definition is correct? Thank you
  11. Thank you very much for your help🌺🌺
  12. Hello, thank you very much for your help, it will definitely help me.
  13. Hello, thank you very much for your answer. Yes, that's exactly what I do; But unfortunately, in some films that have character transformation, the lighting is not very readable. On the other hand, in many films that have very significant lighting, there is no character change!
  14. Thank you very much for your answer, dear master
