Hi, I'm Rebecca Guenther with and I'm going to talk to you about architectural photography lighting. When it comes to architectural photography, if you're shooting exteriors, you want to generally as is the rule with most photography, shoot either first thing in the morning right before the sun comes up or as the sun is coming up or last thing at night as it's going down or just after it's gone down, that way the lighting is most even and there are fewer shadows and you can really get the detail of the architecture without having, you know really ugly black lines created by the shadows. Same thing goes for the interiors, you generally want to shoot it when the lighting outside is most even and you want to make sure that you place your lights all around and that they're usually cast up at the ceilings, the light bounces back down and fills the space very evenly. You want everything to be really evenly lit. You want to make sure that anything dark has an extra light on it, so that it doesn't go too dark. You want to make sure that anything light has less light on it. And you just want to make sure that everything is really evenly lit, clean and depending on what you're shooting, that it looks either homey and comfortable or that it looks modern and sleek depending on the space you're in.
