I’m involved in a significant amount of both residential and commercial architectural photography. Anyone can point a camera and capture a decent image of an interior. The magic happens when you are able to capture the character of the room or exterior by using available light.
Oregon is blessed with spectacular views and when those views complement the room they should be part of the image. Conventional exposure technique limits your capture to properly exposing either the room or the view. High dynamic range imaging allows you to capture both. The trick is knowing how to do it and keep the image looking natural.
