A&P Shooting interiors, part two...

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by coughlin's law, Jan 16, 2008.

  1. I am meeting with a owner of a new loft building, and I may be shooting again. I need some advice, and input as I want to improve on these... so these settings are what I will use given on the situation of the last one.

    ISO: 100
    TV: "1
    F: 8
    CUSTOM WHITE BALANCE
    METERING: SPOT (?)
    AF FOCUS: ONE SHOT

    Anything else I should know? Should I fire flash or will it look bad?

    If you do use a flash, bounce it off a wall behind you or use a large soft box to cut down on the overblown areas from the flash.

    Bounce flash...

    You can always shoot in raw and do hdr later to make sure of proper exposure :o

    doesn't matter what you used as en exposure last time, chances are it'll be completely different.

  6. I don't have a speedlite, I'd be using the built-in flash in the XT.

    Your best bet is to geta huge flash light and stop down you lens, utilize iso 100. calculate correct exposure, and then paint with flash light, doooo not try to light the room with built in flash...
     
  12. I'm reading about a realistic HDR for interior photos...

    i forgot whos website it was, but he was an interior photog. he had assload of lights, and special lightbulb's with triggers that you put inplace of lightbulbs to give you output for the lamps and whatever. he had a huge pelican case full of shit. he also had some awesome ways of hiding flashes behind vases and paintings and random shit. all in all, pretty complex shit
