Flash / Ambient exposures. One light - usually a rovelight cause open plan house need lots of light - bounced either straight up or from the wall behind me blended with either a single ambient exposure or, in difficult situations, an EF blend.

I feel claustrophobic in houses that paint their ceiling the same color as the walls.

Just snapped this for fun tonight. Was finishing up a personal project when I realized I had a perfect view of the Mandarin Oriental. So shot this vertical panoramic.

Been practicing my interiors compositing, how can this be improved?

This is a combination of:

2 flash exposures
2 ambient
a few flash pops on the sofa and chair
1 exposure for the lights

Here's the original ambient exposure for reference: http://i.imgur.com/Wwh​1jwy.jpg (external link)

I usually just shoot bracketed with natural light and combine the exposures I get but the glare on the wooden floor and the orange light coming off the wood was way too extreme to shoot that way, which is why I decided to kill the ambient light with strobes instead.

As a side note I know the composition could have been better but this was the only way I could shoot the room without getting any of the mess in the other half of it.

I'm assuming when multiple flashes are used there is no longer a need for HDR? I would like to steer our company away from using HDR. I'm really enjoying how natural these look.

I've gotten some good results from layering a flash layer on top of an HDR version, or vice versa.

I always use HDR, flash and ambient for mine.

Is there anywhere I can read up on this? I'm constantly fighting with the color temperature when the ambient light pours through the window. This would be so helpful! Thank you all so much.

I no longer use HDR because of the color shifts and the overall look. I have never liked HDR and am glad to leave it behind.

I DO use Exposure Fusion - via LR Enfuse - when I need an automated blending routine. I find EF to have fewer and less extreme color shifts and generally be more useful. I have blended a flashed exposure with an enfused one with good results, but my usual routine now is a single flash exposure blended with a single ambient one taken from my 7 shot, 1 stop bracket. I rarely use more than one flash. I can get more dependably natural results with PP and hand blending ambient than with multiple flash.

Rich Baum has a good series of videos to get accustomed to shooting RE

here's a video about layering ambient on top of another and brushing in different areas to recover darkness. Same concept when creating a HDR + Ambient mix or Flash + Ambient photo just use the same technique to get rid of harsh shadows or color casts.. etc.

This is really nicely handled imo. Just a bit of a push to certain areas for the shadows and itd be perfect, I bet it was a tough one right?

Hmm been thinking of getting a geared head should I get into this kind of photography. What are the main differences between the 405 and 410??

-?

Thank you! Wasn't too bad, when you say handheld do you mean single exposure? I think I used 2 exposures to get this

I've been using a ball head until a few weeks ago and I gotta say for interior and architecture photography geared head just helps so much with nailing the composition.
