  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
  15. Hello friends, I hope you are well and healthy, I am writing my dissertation on lighting and main character arc, but unfortunately, I can not find movies that also have lighting that are designed according to the positive and negative Main character arc (in fact, I could only find the godfather, the light changes according to the change of character. Can you introduce me to some movies? Thank you very much
  16. Hello friends I'm sorry, my questions seem obvious, but its on my mind Do you think soft or hard light was used in the opening sequence of Godfather 1? On the one hand I think the light is soft and on the other hand I think the light is hard (because of the depth of the shadows and the sharpness of the edges of the shadows ) What do you think? Thanks a lot
  17. Master Mullen, what exactly is the difference between KICKER light and EDGE light? Is it possible to give me an example with pictures? Thank you very much for your kindness
  18. Thank you very much for your comprehensive and valuable explanation, Master. You are absolutely right. In fact, one of my problems is that I have to choose films in which the character has undergone a character Arc . On the other hand, lighting should not be just a scene lighting. And have expressive functions. Also, sorry for the delay in responding, unfortunately my profile had a problem.
  19. Thank you very much for your answer, Master. Sorry I replied late. I did not have access to this site. I understand this fact. In fact, my goal is to study some of the main scenes that are purposefully designed light. For example, the opening sequence of The Godfather which uses top lighting For Marlon Brando And for Michael, soft light is used , or the breaking bad, in which Walter decides to make drugs, uses cross lighting. These are examples. Congratulations on the award. We are proud of you, Master
