Joe K, I always enjoy your technically perfect interior shots. Do you mind sharing the Metadata > Camera, lens, f-stop, shutter speed & any supplemental lights, if u terribly wouldn't mind, I'd appreciate it. Thnx.
Hello Sean, thanks for the compliments. Both shots were captured with a P45+ on an Arca Swiss using a SK 35mm lens with the CF. I was shooting at f/11 for both. The first shot that I posted was a little hairy and complicated, so get ready.
This was an office interior in an old building; most of the walls where white and helped a lot. I used 6 strobes and two hot lights for this image. For strobes, I placed one at the left of camera bouncing off of the wall, one at the right of the camera bouncing into that little out cove. I had one directly above the camera with a 30 degree grid projecting into the shot. A fourth was placed behind that out cove bouncing off of the wall on the right. Fifth one was reflecting out of an umbrella by the cubicles. The last one was behind were the chairs are, bouncing off of the floor and kitchen area. All strobes were gelled with 1/2 CTO; the strobe with the grid also had a full diffusion gel behind the grid. The hot lights were hitting the chair to the right and the group of chairs in front of the camera. When I work with strobes, I balance the shot as much as I can at ISO 200. Then throw on a device that allows me to control manually the length of the exposure, sync the pocket wizards to the Copal shutter and drop the ISO to 50. This allows me to do multiple exposures. I do not remember the shutter speed, but this shot was 6 multiple exposures (I think, it could have been 5) at ISO 50.
I can explain the second one later; I have a shoot to go to.
