Lamp

    Newer Older

    Behind every bright lamp there is a small bulb.

    Reflection of the quote, "Standing on the shoulders of giants" (nanos gigantium humeris insidentes). Which is a metaphor for, "One who develops future intellectual pursuits by understanding the research and works created by notable thinkers of the past".

      I love the composition of this and how you played with shapes and lines. The bottom has a sphere where the red lamp is as well as the light reflection on the wall, it forms a curve to highlight the shape of it. And then there's the competing shape of a cylinder on top. Larger than lamp but you still cannot help but keep your attention at the lamp as opposed to the shade. Even the top lighting is a triangle. It's a very simple concept but you made it an interesting photo based on color choice (both muted as opposed to vibrant colors), has a vintage feel to it, and especially having it off center is key. Nice job :)

      Zury C Thanks!
      Yea the shapes in this photo are all basic geometric shapes. Spheres, cylinders, planes, lines, and parabolas. The lighting also creates a gradient from dark to light, or in another train of thought, from no shape to shape. =)
