Are most of your shots flash bounced? The photos on your site look great. All of the houses are well lit though. Do you do any HDR, or is it just light bouncing.. or something else?

Thanks

About 4 frames each. Mostly flashed, some ambient masked in.

I never do HDR. All my interiors are usually 1 exposure with a flash bounced in some way. The only time I take 2 exposures is if I want to capture a view out the windows and then mask the 2 exposures in PS.

The exteriors are 1 exposure too, the only time I would consider HDR would be outside if there is a large dynamic range dealing with shooting directly towards the sun.

These look great, question. Color correction: do you adjust only the white balance or do you fine tune all the colors with a color checker?

Same question.

Thanks!

Mostly light bouncing these days, I find its the best way to get the room nice and bright and clear like the way all realtors want. I do often layer a tone-mapped image and brush in details where I see fit. The daytime image u quoted has some tone mapping applied on the ceilings, and I don't think the night time one has any tone mapping at all.

No color checker, I just "eyed" the white balance in these. These exposures only utilize ambient frames as "luminosity" layers to fill in some harsh portions of the images.
If I were to rely on traditional HDR methods, there would be strong color casts from the windows and bedding. I'd also lose some of the dramatic lighting you see throughout the details of the room.

I've found that in order to obtain accurate color - like we see it - auxilary lighting is needed. I just amplify whatever the natural light source is within the scene, and build up multiple exposures catering to that vision.

My base exposure in all these shots is a derivative of me pointing a Rovelight above or around the french doors. Once that base exposure is established, I find a few spots in the room to mask in the overexposed area.

The two images below are straight out of camera and give a good indication of how my process works.

Was asked to shoot a new condo development in Roslindale, MA. Unfortunately, I was very limited as the building next door has scaffolding everywhere and is under renovations. Will go back once it's cleaned up.

Did a community today, quick and dirty. No lighting, no tripod, just aperture priority.
