Hey you, yes you! Are you a photograher? I’m looking for advice and wisdom for an upcoming series of shoots. A close loved one is an interior designer. She has challenged me to shoot several of her finished homes for her portfolio. I am growing rapidly in my photography skills, however, I have limited experience and knowledge for shooting architectural photography.
So, do you know how to shoot interior shots? Have you dont architectural shooting before? Well, let me know what you think. Here’s my equipment list:
- Nikon D40
- Nikkor 18-55mm (kit lense)
- Nikkor 55-200mm (no, not the VR)
- Sigma 30mm f1.4
- only one, 2gig SDcard.
- cheap-o aluminium tripod.
- borrowing a 12-24mm wide angle
Now, I planning on getting a few things too:
- two more 2gig SDcards
- wireless shutter release
- a light kit from B & H, w/ 3 lights
My lighting plan consists of using the light kit to fill in for what the natural and existing lighting doesn’t supply. I figure that many of the existing light fixtures will over expose, so I plan to bring along a few of my own 20 or 40 watt bulbs, just in case.
I also know that shooting when the light is coming in, but not directly in, the windows will help me get good natural light.
What else? Please help? Comment away!
