Interior photography pose its own challenges.
Firstly, getting the contrast right is a trial and error method. By this, I mean not letting the required details in the dark parts of the photograph vanish in the darkness and at the same time keeping the highlights not burnt is a big challenge. Luckily there are pre-shoot processes and post-shoot processes that eases the task to a certain level.
Second, there are issues of different color temperature lights acting on the subject (objects inside the room). To get a balanced view, different options from correcting the temperature in the camera to turning off certain lights or closing the screen/blinds will have to be tried.
Third and the most important of all is the distractions. Too many things in the room, the viewer’s eye wander around the photograph to settle. Too little things, the photograph becomes uninteresting to the viewer. So keeping an balance in the photograph is necessary.
Here are my attempts at interior photographs:
This series of photos of the BAPS Temple near Aurora, IL was taken sometime back in early summer of 2009. The day was pleasant with good sunlight for outdoor.
The temple has amazing architectural work involved, but has no photography policy inside the temple. So these outdoor pictures are the ones that one can use to image the amount of work that would have gone in to build it…
Now some photos :-
Receipe: 1 cup of salted peanuts from SAMS. Thats it!
This fall, 2009, was more of fun than photography… but still managed to get some get some pictures that are worth sharing. Here are some…
It took some time to find this perfect color changed maple leaf. Placed it against the paved road and clicked. Nice contrast and uniformly lit sky worked for this.
For the next one, I took the leaf and placed it against the dry leaf stems. Did some “photoshoping” to unsaturate the background. The result is this:
Next one is related to the topic but not specific to the season. The water droplets fallen from the tree above our parked car had formed a beautiful pattern. Again, an overcast sky made it easier on the sensor and very less photoshoping yielded this:
