Apologies Dean (and Phil) - my comment is to Dean about his lovely shoe..
Regards
Sam

No worries Sam.
I too can understand your input on the two images. none taken away from their overall niceness. :-)

One thing with the shoe, now that I take another look Dean....I wonder how it would look if you "pull" the surrounding glow/green down a notch so it doesn't compete with the shoe, kinda helping it to emerge from the fx?  When I squint, I would still want to see a separation from product to rest of page. Just a thought to try if you can see the direction. Again, Well done.

On many of these professional interior shots I hardly see any shadows.
Is that a common requirement?
Shots often get this odd artificial look to me because of that.
(Not only the last - just recognizing on many interiors shown here.)
Sorry - I'm not a pro - so no idea.
Could someone explain?
Cheers

Very nice pictures, ACH, and I'm surprised you got them looking so natural with that lens - I'd have imagined more distortion. I was never an arch. photographer though I did shoot some house stuff for holiday brochures and estate agents (just a bit!) now and again, but always found myself frustrated by lack of movements - hated cropping at the wrong levels, but knew no other way of staying vertical... no PS in those days.

Colour looks very inviting, to me, and that's what usually counts, I'd think: attractive versions of reality.

Well Chris, Rob Thanks for the liking and comments.
Chris my approach is to emulate or enhance reality, or both.
What we see is not the same film or digital sees, our eyes-brain accommodate to light, contrast and color temperature.
These images reflects what my eyes saw and what my soul felt sitting in that place.
If I photograph a wooden mountain house would provably use deeper shadows and more moody color balance.
Hope this answer the interesting question.
About my nikon 14-24 I think is great for interiors, I use a 28mm, 35mm and 60mm as well. Distortion is minimal if you shoot at level.

Well - I think its a valid look and it has its own merits and beauty.
I just realized many interiors I see in this thread or occasionally in magazines have this sort of
soft lighting with hardly any shadows, so I wondered if its a kind of unspoken standard or market demand.

In a sense there is no right or wrong way in this, but there is competent and incompetent. And this is very competent of a full on "strobe lit" commercial interior. I'll bet the clients loved it. But compare it to the interiors of Yelhsa (I'm probably remembering his name wrong) who also posts here-who lights with much more drama. If this was a film shoot 20 years ago I would refer to these above as "American Style Lighting" of an interior vs. a European or Asian Style which used less fill and more shadows and contrast and existing light. I say that because both as a practitioner and an academic (I have done AP for a living for 36 years and taught AP at three universities) I have studied this subject extensively. These days those distinctions are meaningless. I don't know if that confuses things more or helped-just my analysis over the years learning from some of the US greats and then having the opportunity to watch some Europeans work in Santa Fe some years ago and trying to figure out the difference. I personally have moved from the American Style to a more European Style (now obsolete terms) with the advent of digital because it is more forgiving in mixed light and by layering files I can have much greater control than I ever had with film and don't have to have total control in a single exposure as I did with film.

This is one of the answers why I love LuLa so much.

Yes Kirk very well illustrated. Also there are signs of the times in all commercial photgraphy, kind of trends in style.
would be interesting if Yelhsa and Chris Barrett gave their opinions.

The photos of the hotel's interior are very crisp and clean. It has been interesting reading everyone's comments--Kirk's in particular. I never had the patience for architectural photography. It's highly technical and highly challenging to be able to capture an architect's design or a client's intention with finesse. A lot of artistic decision-making is required by the photographer too--lots of variables to juggle. From what I've observed about photographing architecture is that it takes years of experience to really master the craft. By the way, I also have the Nikon 14-24mm lens. It is an awesome lens. I would have to guess it is one of those "must have" lenses for FF 35mm architecture gigs.

@ Antonio... I typically avoid direct shadows in my interiors, they often just add visual clutter and distract from the design.  Once in a while though, they make the shot...  Here's one where I added my own shadow with an HMI through the window...

Superb. ... I'm thinking Bauhaus. I like the way you are taking photography to the edge, to where the medium becomes ambiguous. CGI, painting, serigraphy? Who knows, who cares. The images are provocative.
