I've been lurking here and there. Also have spent most of my time on a Facebook group. Some really talented folks are over there... check it out: https://www.facebook.c​om/groups/256436391128​736/ (external link)

Working on an architect's office right now and a new development downtown Wednesday. I will post those this week.

I'll check the group out!

Photos are looking better than ever! I finally got around to watching the Art meets architecture series. Very good stuff (specifically the second). What have your clients been lately composed of recently? I'm trying to find out the best way to approach companies like kitchen designers that may only want 1-3 photos rather than a builder who wants 15 yet justify them paying as much for them.

Still haven't watched it, I talked to Mike and he said a 3rd one focused on commercial work is in the works. Waiting to watch that one.

Clients lately have been designers, developers, and construction companies, and the usual real estate stuff. Getting into bed with architects and planners now... the future is bright!

I planted a lot of seeds this winter with basically every architect in town using marketing booklets. A lot interest that hopefully blooms this spring since things just started greening again.

Well, after watching this thread for a long time now decided to give a shot to interior photography. It's not worth posting looking to what you guys achieve under this thread but decided that I need to give a start at some point.

^^ before working on lighting, start out with composition. Verticals lines don't look bad but on a one point perspective like this you need to be perfect or it looks off. Also, too much of the frame is bed. If you're showing off the space of the room, just include enough bed to let people know it's there (unless you're showing off the interior design that includes the bed in which this is the wrong composition for anyways)

Speaking of FB groups...make sure to join the WAMA group if you haven't already, which I've spent more of my time in recently. Kitchen designers definitely want more than 1-3 photos FWIW. I've found that like with other interior clientele there are radically different philosophies on the value of photography, so they aren't a sure bet to be high paying work. They tend to want shots that show some of the functionality of the space such as well.

Maybe that's why I didn't know about it... I didn't buy it, a friend let me borrow his external hard drive with it. Probably for purchasers only.

In fact there was no composition I must admit, it was more of a point&shoot photo :) I wanted to cover as much of the room as I could, which resulted in a weird looking shot like the below one :D Ended up using the other one, which at least has straight lines. Thanks for the valuable input ;)

Always looking to improve, CC welcome. HGA Architects' new office in Sacramento. None of the newly built out "white" side had parallel structures... the result was converging sight lines that blended the history of the repurposed industrial warehouse with the contemporary sharp lines found throughout this set. Enjoy.

One, sometimes two, Rovelights were used here to highlight certain surfaces and provide some light in the darker places of the ceilings. The result is some much needed separation in some of the deeper shots.

^^ Looking fantastic man. What were you using to bounce the lights in the areas without white ceilings...shoot throughs or reflective umbrella?

Only CC I can even think of is the last image, the table/seat look just barely too flashed (for my taste...but yours is probably different).

Did you use a TSE on #2 or did you just correct in post?

Also, are you doing sharpening in post or do you leave as is?

DonJuan is a pretty advanced interiors photographer...I don't think it's this simple.

That doesn't mean its not a white balance problem.
I've also found that I can get rid of a color cast by using the SHL sliders on a color specific basis.

This is an awesome space, and your shots are killer! Only a couple small critiques from me, pay attention to casters and make sure they are consistent. I like to point them all in one direction, I've seen others have them all pointed away from the center of the chair. It will slow you down on those conference room shots, but it's easy once you get used to it. As for shot number 6, I like the person on the right in the kitchen, but for whatever reason I'm not crazy about the person walking through the middle of the space. Maybe it would feel too empty without her there though.
