Understanding Exposure: Listing Interiors (Part 1)
So, there are two ways that we can tackle this photo:
1) High Dynamic Range (HDR) Processing - What I would call the software approach – just bracket your exposures and combine them using specialized computer software. I wrote more about this in a previous post.
2) Use Off-Camera Flashes – What I would call the hardware approach – increase the amount of light inside the room so that it matches the intensity and color of light coming in through the windows. Additional photographic equipment is required for this option. If you’d like to learn about off-camera flash basics, read this post first.
I want to focus on option #2, and add additional light so that a well exposed photo can be obtained in a single shot. So we’ll need a couple of off-camera flashes, and a few other things, but I’ll get into the exact requirements and processes in my next post.
Also, bonus points go to those who were displeased aesthetically with the photo above: uneven curtains, cushion on floor, throw blanket on couch, messy tablecloth, awkward lamp, etc. As always, it’s important to run through a checklistto make sure your photos will look their best.
