A standard interior design shoot!
During the shoot:
- Small room, not much space to setup camera. Camera had to be all the way against the wall. No room to be behind the camera unless I’d use a lens with mean distortion. Remote controll for the camera and remote display via Eye-Fi and iPad.
- Adding bounced and diffused flash to fill in shadows in rooms. Not a big fan of HDR. It looks too psychadelic for me.
- Continuously adjusting furniture and props in room to create final composition.
- Horizontal image didn’t have enough information of the floor. For one shot I used two two vertical images.
Post production in Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5
- Standard panorama function in Photoshop for stitching two shots together was insufficient. Rather did manual perspective control in PS to combine two images.
- Lens distortion correction to create straight and vertical and horizontal lines. Fine tune images with free transformation.
- Remove reflections with cut out details from a differently exposed picture.
- Touch up nail holes and damages on walls and ceiling.
- Straighten paint jobs.
- Remove crooked and unsightly light switches.
- Fix wainscott wall. Wood was damaged at bottom.
- Remove crooked door latch.
- Remove screwheads in window frame.
- Gaps between drawers on a dresser were uneven. Realigned gaps.
- Added blurred person walking through room in selected shot
- General color and constrast adjustments and chan ging accent lighting in post production.
