View Course Description

Half of what goes into creating a great architectural image happens in post. During this phase of the process, the magic and power of multiframe capture techniques, compositing, and localized color correction are revealed. This course focuses on the techniques architects use in their post-production workflow to enhance interior shots with Capture One Pro and Photoshop. Professional photographer Richard Klein shows how to select the best frames from the shoot and then perform tonal and color adjustments, lens correction, and noise reduction on the raw files. He then turns to Photoshop to composite elements from other frames to enhance the base plate, remove unwanted reflections, and finish the image with localized color correction. Richard also shows how he uses Photoshop actions to size, sharpen, and output the final images. This course offers hands-on experience solving the issues encountered in modern, digitally based architectural photography.

To learn how Richard shot the images in this course, watch Architectural Photography: Interiors.

Topics include:
  • Maximizing image quality
  • Correcting color
  • Reducing noise
  • Removing moiré
  • Compositing images to remove distractions
  • Comprising white balance and mixed lighting conditions
  • Dealing with over-bright images
  • Moving and straightening objects
  • Dealing with reflective surfaces

Richard Klein


Hi, I'm Richard Klein and welcome to Enhancing Architectural Interiors where we take a close look at the post process focused on creating maximum image quality, beginning with the RAW file to final output. In this course, we'll look at using our RAW converter to do all the heavy lifting for tonal and color adjustments, lens and perspective correction, noise reduction. And finally to get rid of that pesky moiré when it pops up. Next, we jump into Photoshop for advanced selections for compositing.

Cleaning up mixed light source color contamination, and retouching any other problems we find. We see how to make the best compromise for white balance and mixed lighting conditions. Methods to deal with high dynamic range over bright windows without HDR. Ways to remove and straighten objects in sticky situations. And finally create an action to size the image for each specific output using two pass sharpening to get everything the file has to offer. The shots we are working with are from a professional shoot on medium format at two beautiful locations.

There was even a companion course about the live shoot. So between the two, you can see the entire process from location scout to post. So, if your interest is to get more out of your RAW captures, to learn about the conventions and methods of architectural post, to get the utmost image quality. Or to get inside a workflow a seasoned pro uses in a professional practice, then this course is for you. Now let's get started with Enhancing Architectural Interiors.
