Help with still images
First of all I would like to apologize for bringing this up in here as it have nothing to do with panoramas. Unfortunately I do not know where else to find the help I need.
I have an urgent need to learn the basics of still photography of buildings. Mostly inside but also some facade pictures.
I have the opportunity to land 2 architechts but they require that I also do still photos. Unfortunately I am a selv taught panoramic photographer strating from scratch and so far I have only focused on the workflow for panoramic pictures. I do not have the basic knowledge of photography as a "regular" photographer.
So my question / request is if someone can give me - or tell me where to find - basic insight on taking still photos of buildings etc.
The client knows a lot about photography and said they would like to see examples of a certain kind of photos. I believe he said something like "flash backlight" What is that? Does it mean shots where the attatched flash is the main light source?
I would also like to know what sort of equipment I should look for? My new camera will be a Canon 5D. Can anyone suggest a good flash and a suitable wide angle lense for interior shots?
I ask you fellow easypano forum members because I know that many of you also do tours for realtors. That must have given you a lot of experience with this kind of photos and I hope that I can learn the basics from you.
I would like to know tips and tricks on shooting. What equipment do you use? What is your work flow?
I am considering to use a tripod as I believe that will give me an advantage as I can use longer exposure times and have the opportunity for bracketing. Is this hwo you experienced guys do is? Or does it take to long to carry a tripod around?
I really appreciate all the response and advice you guys can give me.
