Only release work that is the best it can be, is the moral here I guess.

Excellent advice Greg. That truly sucks how things went down on that job...

I get the same amount per hour/day ($85/hour 700 a day) if it is for an architect or broker. The trend here during the recession was for rentals, and i had to agree to a fixed fee/bedroom deal of much less. I have not charged for travel time or gas to places like Telluride or Boulder.I stay with friends or on the floor in my friends architecture office in Telluride. Or in the summer I camp.

I just shot my first interior photos.

I am wondering of any of you can offer some critiques or techniques to improve this photo.

I am not particularly happy with the fact that the photo has a sort of flash look. I also don't like the shadows above the cabinets. I appreciate your help.

Here is the photo:

Did you shoot your flash diffused at all?

HDR would help with the shadows.

I would have taken those signs off the wall on the left.

Not a bad first try. You've got the general idea.

Thanks for the reply.

I just shot the flash bare off of the ceiling. I did create an HDR of the room, but the two fluorescent lights were different colors (One green and one yellow) and cast some odd colors onto the scene.

The photo wasn't for a client, just me trying to figure this stuff out.

Thanks again for your help.

I think it is too bright. You have erased a lot of detail, too even. I think the shadows are ok. If you have lights I see no need for the HDR. Just back off the lighting some. Rooms have shadows, kitchens normally have shadows above cabinets, I see know need to try to lessen them. It can give the shot some depth and warmth, and highlight the cabinets.

Thanks GN and Mike. Will do next time around.

So, it's not really a big issue to have the overhead lights blow out due to the longer exposure?

I don't know about losing it, but definitely tilted and OOF and windows are harshly blown out!

Turn the lights off part of the way through the exposure.
