Nikon DF / Sigma 90mm F1.4
My sister has just started an interior painting biz.
Anyone got tips on how to
best capture a finished job in a room often devoid of many features and often fairly poorly lit?
She just uses her camera phone but I could pop along with my fuji if that'd help. Is external lighting source necessary?
Definitely get a proper wide angle, and a tripod (natural lighting might look nicer than artificial frankly - but depth of field would be good, hence a tripod, which allows for long shutter speeds).
Check websites of architects etc. for inspiration how to make empty rooms look good!
Nice shots man, that last one is amazing!
Definitely tripod and do any of the windows (assuming there are some) let in direct sunlight? Could create a nice contrast (might require bracketing/HDR depending on conditions) and show the paintjob in a more rounded way?
I do occasional interior photography for houses etc and as others have said, option one is tripod so you can do long exposures to get the light. Also really wide lens, as wide as you can.
You can also use external lights as option two, but make sure you can soften it so it's not to jarring. Cotton sheets over lamps are cheap alternatives to expensive specific lighting. In a REAL pinch, the less shiney side of tin foil can be seoltaped onto walls etc to reflect light reasonably softly.
Thanks folks, appreciate the input.
I've just discovered that you can install Lightroom from the Mac App Store without installing all the other garbage that comes with the regular download, Creative Cloud etc. I am so happy right now.

Bit of a derail.
Canon flexing with satellite imagery website...
Is it me or is this just a predefined selection of images that you can scroll on?
Some great shots posted
I love this for movement that isn’t there
