A Sunny Sunday Morning

Creating Atmosphere with Background Patterns

Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (4 votes)


Bert Stephani is a photographer from Belgium. In this FotoTV. course wie visit him in a hotel room: 

In a shooting with his model Swetlana he shows aus how to change the boring, single-coloured impression of that room into the atmosphere of a sunny sunday morning.

For Bert the ambient light is very important. By using a simple potted plant and one or two flashes he tries to imitate the real sunlight, projecting the shadows of a real tree onto the room's walls.



Usage of ambient light is what I actually lacked all this while. I really didn't know how well make use of the ambient lights and I used other light sources to compensate that. This workshop session was actually a great use to me. Would love to know more about this.
