Tip of the Week: Create a Mood


Transparent or net curtains bring about a romantic feel and can also create a melancholy mood in a picture. To enhance the natural ‘soulfulness’ of the curtain, try to include a human element in your frame. It could be a woman standing at the window with the curtains covering her, so that she is partly hidden. Or, you may photograph someone through these transparent curtains. Another advantage of translucent or sheer curtains is that they soften the harsh light coming through the windows. This is useful when you want to shoot a portrait using just window light.
