Elizabeth (Cine Tour)

Elizabeth, by MOSAIC homes. This shoot was all about responding to unexpected lighting challenges.

Let’s deconstruct the opening shot of the kitchen. The glass behind the sink was reflective and also opened into the office behind. This limited our camera placements, created a distraction and made the home look too much like a showroom (something our client did not want).

To deal with this, we affixed diffusion paper across the rear of the window and filled it with light. From there it was easy to adjust the backlight to overexpose the window and effectively turn it into a big, warm light source. This example is just one way that we often improvise in the field and solve production problems on the fly. The end result is a space which looks bright, open and inviting.
