The actual project The project that a group of students is doing is reproducing a picture of the actors “ The Pirates of Caribbean”- a frame photograph. The students are split up in 5 groups: People who would be working on hair and make up, people who would be making costumes and take care of the props than a student who will take the actual picture, than set people and cameraman and a person who will take care of the light. There are 5 characters on the picture that 5 students from the group will act.
A Set Designer is a person who works in collaboration with the director to create a set for theatrical, film, or television product.

Our job is to recreate the set of a picture from the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean: At world’s end”. We will use a large white wall and cover it with opaque wallpaper. We will then use Photoshop to modify it and use effects. In the picture there are 5 characters from the movie: Jack Sparrow, William Turner, Captain Barbossa, Elizabeth Swann, and Sao Feng. Our Set Design
Background Lighting is used in photography and movies to illustrate the mood, atmosphere and setting. While good lighting can effectively create a mood suitable for the movie or photograph, bad lighting can easily ruin a whole movie or photo shoot by making it look cheap or hazy, and in this presentation we shall look at examples, good and bad.
Example One In the first example, the lighting hits the sculpture from the sides, from points at ground level compared to the sculpture. This creates a very elaborate shadow, defining the curves of the sculpture and making a very elegant mood. It also gives a sense of height to the sculpture due to the lengthening effect of the low lights and the shadow around the top of the sculpture.
Example Two In the second example the light hits the sculpture from one side. There isn't any dramatic effect like in the first one, but we do get a feeling of elegance due to the lack of natural light and the slick shadows made by the lighting.
Example Three The third example has no artificial lighting, there is only natural light from a window. In the third example the sculpture seems cheap, hazy and dull due to the natural light and lack of artificial light. Since there is no direct angle from an artificial light, there are no defined shadows making the sculpture seem boring.
Example Four In the fourth example the light hits the sculpture up close, from the left. The last example which has a very strong light from the side, has a very dramatic feeling and a very strong, defined shadow. The dramatic mood and the feeling of elegance is an excellent combination.
