Gabriela Herman created a series called “Bloggers”
The light used in the images is supposedly coming from their computer screens giving the impression that they are submerged in their digital world with the rest of the image in darkness.
This is another example of the light creating the meaning in a similar way that Caravaggio’s painting did as well.
The light is indicating the main message of the image it makes me feel that i’m watching someone who is engrossed in their hobby leaving them vacant in the real world.
Lighting is key to portraying the message in this image, it shows how important lighting can be in photographs and art it makes me contemplate how much of our lives are taken up with technology and the digital world.
