Sketch Series 3

Examining Fabric Under Different Lighting Conditions

Light sketch four required our light box group to go on a scavenger hunt for different light sources and document how each affects the appearance of color and texture. We chose four very textured fabrics in warm and cool colors and photographed them with a variety of lamp types. The lamp types we used were fluorescent, LED, halogen, and HID. Not only did we document the different sources but we also documented them in daylight and night conditions.

It is clear to see how some lamp types can drastically change the color of the fabric. One of the most interesting changes is documented in the HID lamp. The green swatch (the last one) looks vastly different under the same lamp, in different natural lighting conditions.
