Beautiful Home

I went to photograph interior designer Judith Hendry’s home in Stellenbosch. It is a beautiful home where each area has its own story and focal point.

The whole shoot was shot with daylight and when needed, one fill-in flash was used to fill the shadows. The flash was put through a white umbrella to help diffuse the light to still have soft shadows. This technique was mainly used in the bedrooms.

Also used was around reflector, using either the white or silver side to push some light into the shadows where the space was to tight to fit the flash.

The daylight and flash combination was also used for the portrait of Judith. Although the daylight was quite low and I needed to have a long exposure for the interior, the flash helped to “freeze” her and the dog, so that there is no movement on either of them.

Special thanks to Danny Toua for putting the shoot together as well as the styling.
