7. Combine Lighting
Whenever possible, try to combine lighting for the best images. For example, you will want a mixture of multiple light sources—some lighter and some darker.
The easiest way to achieve this is by adding dimmers to your lighting setups to give you more control over how bright or dark they become. You can also just adjust the power of your Speedlight.
8. Turn off interior lights
Generally, you will want to turn off the interior light sources so that your photos feel more natural and there is less discoloration in your pictures if you have two different light sources, such as a flash and a lamp.
The light will be conflicting and not look nice. It’s best to take each shot with your flash source and not the interior lights. The other issue with interior light is that it creates harsh shadows on everything, including the wall, furniture, and ceiling. Instead, use your flash equipment when photographing the scene.
When it comes to interior photography, your lights are key, but every photographer should bring some other key things on an architectural shoot. Let’s explore them here.
