Lightbox reflection

After the long online break we were challenged to create a lightbox of somewhere we would like to visit as our next project. For my lightbox, I decided to make a mountain landscape since it reminded me of the trip to Jeju in my homeland Korea. I used to frequently visit Jeju with my family to hike the hallasan mountain which can be seen in my lightbox.

As I was looking at my final lightbox I could find some things I did well. Even though I am regretting I didn’t add different kinds of trees in my lightbox, I think I did a good job in changing the size of the trees so that it would make it look more natural. Also I found that it was a good choice to add some white in to the mountain so that it would also make the entire thing look real.

But I do think there are several things I would want to change about my lightbox as well. First, I would make the mountain a little bigger and higher because it seems a little short compared to the height of the whole lightbox. I would like to make it almost reaching the top so that it can fill the lightbox. Second I would want to make my background piece smaller and instead have bigger curves. It was really hard for me to pull that piece out every time I had to paint it or change something. If I had made the piece smaller it would have saved my time trying to pull that out and it would make everything so much easier and faster.

One piece of feedback I’ve gotten on my lightbox from my partner is that I should have kept the LED wire inside so that it doesn’t show.   Also my partner said that I could’ve painted the hill piece in a different color rather than silver since it blends into the the mountain piece which is also painted in silver.

Lastly, I have one piece of advice I ‘d give to the  future students doing this project. I want to say that the painting process is the part where they should be most careful of and be focused. One of the reasons I think my lightbox isn’t a success overall is also because I messed up with the painting part.  Maybe trying to use a smaller brush to paint somewhere narrow would be a good idea. Also using a masking tape as Mr. Layman told us is also a very helpful way to make your lightbox look clear and neat.
