We often get asked to shoot holiday properties throughout the winter.  Some might think this strange as we want blue skies, pretty flowers and lots and lots of sunshine… yes?  Well not really if you are shooting the interiors of the property, winter is actually better.

What we need is a stable light when shooting interiors and winter in fact gives that – that is if you shoot on a non too stormy day.  The light will be neither too bright or ‘moving’ as the sun comes in and out from behind clouds.  If right the light will give more saturated colours to the room and nice glows from lighting and fire-side images.  It will also permit realistic views from the windows (not cut and stuck ones done later in post production which can look false). So it was nice to be asked in just before Christmas to shoot a very well accommodated cottage – lots of space and very fine furnishings.  Set in its own surroundings the cottage is perfect for a short or long break in the more secluded areas of the Highlands.  The key issue for the entire property was the polished stained timber used in the doors, door frames and skirting’s – yes all the way down on the floor.  As a

gloss finish it ‘flashes’ when using strobe lights so the angles have to be chosen carefully as the doors can get ugly white patches if not thought through.  Shooting within the winter period though does cause a problem with dark shadows though – it’s the down-side of all that nice saturated colour elsewhere. So we not only used the multiple strobes we also used bounces – filling the shadows a little at the side of furniture.  This way you keep the flash light to a natural glow without being too strong.
