About This Class

In this class we’ll go over all the basic skills you’ll need to best photograph interiors.

We’ll talk about what equipment I use and what kind of gear you’ll need for the job. We’ll go into a new space and discuss how you approach a home for the first time, and what to look for before you even pick up your camera. After that, we’ll talk about how to best set up your shot and how to use natural and artificial light to your advantage.

This course will not discuss any processing or file handling, as we’ll primarily focus on getting the best shot in-camera so we’ll talk about shooting to the right and using your histogram on your camera to make sure your shots look good, even when they’re not on your camera.

Great class! For so long, I've been frustrated with how my photos of interiors turned out. Now I understand what I've been doing wrong and how to fix it! Fortunately, my husband had a Speedlight I could use and bounce flash has rocked my world! Everything was very well explained and Alex's personality is super engaging. Highly recommended.
