Painting with Light

Lighting Diagram

An instrument produces more than just sound. The color of music can be determined by the high or low sound of the instrument. Katy Mooney, a member of Marching Mizzou, stands outside at Stephens Lake Park playing the trumpet, which is known to produce the color red.

Our goal was to show how the tones of different musical instruments represent different colors. In our case, the trumpet elicits a red tone. The camera settings were at ISO100, f/11, and the exposure was for 90 seconds. One person used a miniature led flashlight with a red gel to outline the trumpeter and the trumpet. After the outline was complete, the subject was flashed with no gel. The subject then moved while the roof was painted with a blue gelled flash.
