Seeing “The Addams Family” when I was younger I always wondered why Morticia Addams always looked so hauntingly beautiful.
Looking at these images you would notice that somehow Morticia’s eye area remains glowing all the time.
Here’s why : They slap some Gaffer tape over the light leaving a certain amount of light peeking through and let her stand on her mark the whole time.
Basic and very effective, gaffer tape has been been used in the movie industry for lighting modification for ages and with the line between Film and Photography being blurred more and more with photography using continuous lighting this is an effect that has made its way into the hearts of all image creators.
How big of a role lighting contributes to the putting together of a wonderful image.
