It IS possible today, with modern digital equipment used properly, to make the necessary exposures along a range of exposure values and combine them in post production and make a photographic illustration superior to anything made in the film days.
That’s saying a lot considering the vast scientific and artistic knowledge required by interior photographers of yesterday. In the past excellent photographers were sought out to “bring out the original design intent” of the architect and interior designer and some came pretty close. Today the photographer, using all of his digital palettes, is able to capture the actual look of an interior without trampling the original design with the artificial light required back then to get a usable exposure on film.
With modern digital cameras, Tilt and Shift articulating lenses duplicate many of the adjustments photographers used with their adjustable view cameras.
I use the tremendous line of Tilt and Shift lenses from Zeiss/Hartblei optics in Germany and the fantastic TSE tilt/shift lenses from Canon.
I am the only American photographer endorsed on the Zeiss/Hartblei website in Germany. They think my work is “tops” and I hope you will too.
