Story

This picture was taken at one of our friends’ place at an Inspiration Indoor Workshops in September 2021. I wanted to introduce our students to the use of light and to give them an understanding of how light can be used to reinforce different emotions and tell stories.

In this image, the couple was placed against the wall in such a way that the window light + the shadows of the window frame illuminated their faces and were the focus. The challenge was to find the right photo settings since the sun was shining very strongly and the goal of the picture was to still remain “soft”.

Hi, I’m Kathrin, I’m not very good at telling stories. I prefer to let pictures speak. There are pictures of pretty much every situation in my life. Even of the most embarrassing haircut I ever had to wear on my head. And I think that’s the most beautiful thing about photography.
