Video: Intro to shooting architectural interiors

(MUSIC) What I really love about shooting interiors is the fact that I take a three-dimensional space, compress that down into a two-dimensional picture plane. And then create 3D space inside that picture plane using composition and lighting. It's just breathtaking. I just love that activity.

Whether you're photographing a room for an architectural magazine, for a real-estate ad, or for an interior decorator friend, interior spaces present a variety of photographic challenges. In this course, photographer Richard Klein visits two homes, photographing their interiors while explaining the essential shooting and lighting techniques behind making these spaces look their best.

The course describes the best ways to light interior elements to show their texture and form, and contains tips on staging rooms to make them more inviting. Richard also tackles the tricky challenges that windows and exterior lighting introduce: how do you adjust exposure to capture interior details without overexposing the windows?

Intro to shooting architectural interiors

(MUSIC) What I really love about shooting interiors is the fact that I take a three-dimensional space, compress that down into a two-dimensional picture plane. And then create 3D space inside that picture plane using composition and lighting. It's just breathtaking. I just love that activity.

On this trip, I'm getting to photograph a 25 year labor of love. Just rich with details and handwork. And in addition I've got a house sitting on top of a cliff overlooking the ocean with just stunning views, a tremendous landscape. When I'm working with a space with such a high level of design and detail, I keep in mind the fact that most people are not going to be able to come and see the space itself. And I keep that in mind as I'm creating the images, because what I'm doing will become part of the legacy and the history of the space.

My favorite aspect in the entire process, I have to say, is in lighting. Because with lighting I actually can add the life to the image. Can separate out the planes, can put the depth in the image, and the difference between a lit space, and an unlit space is just night and day. My favorite time is right when we just finish doing the captures and is ready to shut everything down, and I just like to stand back and just take a look at it and think, it's in its best light.

This is as nice as it's ever going to look and I'm getting to experience it right now.
