mastering of creative exposure combining interior/ exterior

This is about understanding exposure: outside it will be over – , inside under exposed. Some relatively small part of the face will be “correctly” exposed, that’s what we want to play with. At first glance this seems very simple, but once you’ll get into it you’ll realise how complex this situation really is. It’s the basic of creating lighting moods and atmospheres, which will stay the base of your professional career.

no artificial lighting: bouncing of available light only
