Well for starter: 99.99% I do not use artificial light when I photograph interiors. Now if that's a good and effective technique to shoot or not, that's a different question. But definitely what I do when I shoot works really well with my post production technique. I basically do a series of exposures from under expose to overexpose and then I blend them in photoshop. Now, how do I blend them, that is trade secret. But I will tell you this much, the result is close to reality as possible and does not sacrafice the lighting intent of the client's.
So I'm thinking to share some of my photoshop skills and tips with folks that are interested. I believe that as a photographer, you can no longer "survive" by taking photos unless you have someone extremely trust worthy to process your photos. We are now in the 21st Century that we have the luxury to develop our photos in the digital darkroom. If that is a curse or not that is another topic. Nevertheless, I hope that my insight will help you in developing your own technique and workflow. There is a running joke in my old office that if a client asks us if we can retouch out this and that, I tell them this is Photoshop 101, 102 or 201, 202... then there is Master Photoshop. So I will mix it up a bit to keep it entertaining and informative.
