LIGHTING Chapters Two and Three Purpose – illuminate, control shape and texture, direct and affect audiences’ attention Shadows – define shape and location of an object Attached – shadows cast by parts or texture of an object. Helps us see a basic  shape of  an object Cast – the shadow an object casts on another object  (can be connected and  disconnected). Helps us see the spatial orientation of an object or the time of day or  season. Falloff – hardness/softness/gradation of a shadow Contrast – ratio between the brightest and darkest parts of a scene or object Fast or Slow Fall off – how gradual the transition between light dark and how  intense  a shadow area is. Fast falloff shows high brightness contrast between lit and  shadow  areas. Control by lighting direction/diffusion and by fill light Shadow fall off is the speed in which lit areas fall into shadow. You can reduce the speed of falloff by increasing fill-light intensity.
