Interior Photography Techniques

Today’s commission was an interior advertising shoot of a lovely holiday home overlooking the sea.  The bright conditions called for a mix of ambient light and off camera flash to iron out the long shadows caused by the low winter sun. The key to creating natural looking interiors is mixing natural ambient light and tungsten from the lamps etc, then throw in a little flash to balance things out. Lastly, some finishing touches to dress the room nicely.

The interior exposures were hovering around 1/15sec @ f/11 at 400 ISO. I used Quantum’s wireless Qflash system at 1/2 power – soft box attached and directed into shadows.
