Shooting hotel rooms and condos
Hi all,
I will be shooting some still photography (Canon digital Rebel camera) next week and I have the following lights for use:

- Kino Flo Diva 400.

-2 Tota Lights with 500/750 watt lamps.

-1 Omni light with what I believe is a 400w lamp.

I will be shooting this with daylight coming in the windows.

Can anyone suggest which lights I should take along? I don't think the Kino Flo is necessary, correct?

I am a newbie here.

What will be your subject(s), Nick? The rooms themselves? People in the settings?

Hi Ken!
Just rooms...no people...nada. Just rooms and furniture.

I'd be inclined to bring the Totas and Omni, as you supposed. I'd also bring some CTB gels (since you'll also have natural light) and maybe a piece of black foil in case you find a need to build a makeshift snoot for the Omni to highlight a specific element closely.

Have fun!

Okay Ken,
Here's the result of an interior shot I did with the lights...not sure what to think. I think I like it....except, those shadows behind the lamp are bad..


Here's an exterior for fun:

Wow, colorful room, eh?! Did you shoot this for a hotel brochure or other promotional material?

Nick Medrano August 3rd, 2004 10:30 PM

Hey Ken,
I shot it for some student travel agency that sells vacation packages in Texas. Used a bit of photoshop in that picture...

OH, I had a problem with a 750W lamp on the Tota. Here's my post in the PHOTON section: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?s=&threadid=30046
