In my last post I talked about how important lighting is. The reason I decided to pick Naoya Hatakeyama to talk about was because of the use of lighting in his photographs. A lot of his photos from Lime Works, like the photo posted on the blog, shows a mixing of warm and cool light. A lot of these photos are take at sunrise or sunset which causes the mixing of these colors. These use of lighting and color makes the some of the photos seem cold with pockets of warm tungsten light and other times the lighting and color really helps the image feel old and rusty. I also really love these landscapes because they are not your typical warm, grassy green landscape. Instead these photos are cold and industrial. I really like this approach to landscape photography because all the intersecting machines and buildings have great use of line and look more busy and active.
