Re: Photography lighting set-ups
I used a Nikon D50 with a 18-70 lens, on the 18 angle.
It was all room light, no flash at all.
If you look to the left you can see a window.
That was the biggest problem.
It was casting this really horrible looking blue cast over everything.
You can still see some of it in the highlights...
I ended up putting some boards over the window, which probably blocked about 75% of the light coming in. Just enough to still show the exterior light...
I had to do a little photoshopping to get it right.
The chandelier was way too bright, and ended up totally blown out.
So I took a 2nd shoot, which was way too dark for the room itself, but captured all the details of the crystals. So, the chandelier is from a different shot.
C'est la vie...
