I had a great time in this class. We had Sharon White as our teacher again, who I admire and respect very much, and were tasked with photographing a house that was on the market in the area, the Charles River Museum of Industry and the Boston Public Library. We provided prints for the museum and library, and digital files to the listing agent of the house. I really liked that we had actual clients to provide deliverables to, most of (if not all of) the prior classes did not require us to do that.
This class we primarily worked on an individual basis, we focused on using HDR and compositing in photoshop to create our final images if a single long exposure wasn’t enough. Between this class and my last post about Product and Still Life we had two classes – Photoshop III: Masking & Compositing and Integrating Photoshop Into the Creative Studio. I didn’t write posts for those because they were less shooting oriented and more about learning Photoshop on a higher level. Anyway, none of these photos are HDR, I opted to composite specific areas using masking in photoshop.
Here are some of my favorite photos from the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation in Waltham:
And here are my favorites from the Boston Public Library:
So, there they are! I found photographing interiors to be quite interesting and it can get infinitely complex as well, depending on the location, light, etc. I’ll leave it to the pro’s, but I thought it was a good experience.
