Lighting Journal Feature

Drawing light can go a long way when it comes to understanding illumination and indeed spatial composition – something lighting designers Seraphina Gogate and Sophie O’Rourke are intrigued by.

For the latest edition of Lighting Journal, Seraphina and Sophie have written a feature about the art of drawing light, which goes back in time to examine how great artists used light in their work and how they (essentially) drew up the blueprint for the work that lighting designers do today. Moving forward to the present-day, they then consider light and art in the three-dimensional world. And that’s not all… they present three main principles for actually drawing light: object versus surface, the inequality of shadows, plus daylight and diffused light.

Here’s a link to the article.
