Our photography style is an important part that completes our brand experience, forward thinking, impactful and welcoming as well as a visual interpretation of our purpose. The examples shown here are orientation for image processing. It does not make sense to provide a universal filter, as the lighting conditions can be very different in each shooting.

Color look of the REHAU imagery

The REHAU picture world is inviting and impressive. The pictures have a high proportion of black and are very rich in contrast. The saturation is slightly reduced, the skin tones nevertheless appear lively. However, the colours of the products remain authentic and unchanged.

The color spectrum of the image is believable and dynamic. The scene is flooded with warm light. This effect can be improved by using the ColorLookUp “Crisp_Warm” in Photoshop. In general, however, it is not possible to provide a universal filter for processing, as the lighting conditions on the set are always different. The many examples on this page are intended to provide orientation.
