The unseen part
A lot is happening between the initial contact with the client and the final delivery of the photos. The most visible part of this process is of course the shoot itself, especially when many people are involved. But there is another equally important part that usually remains invisible, namely the post-processing of the raw images. Here’s a video on the post-processing of an interior shoot for Landelijk Wonen, a Dutch magazine on interior design.

A natural look was important for these photos. To achieve this, we only used natural, existing light during the shoot. The natural tones have been reinforced during post-processing by adding more contrast and by using different colours for both the shadows and highlights. Finally, we added a vignette to create an intimate atmosphere.
