I have a couple of opportunities coming up to shoot some very nicely decorated h ome interiors for practice. I say practice as I am not expecting payment since I have never done this, although have always wanted to. One of the homes features some promienent antiques, and the other one is a very old historical house bein g renovated for living in by the owner as well as for tours. Since my smallest n ice lens is a 135mm, I'm thinking of getting something like a (used) 90mm or 75m m lens for my Super Graphic, which will barely take a 65. I'm really not interes ted in using a center filter, so I would suspect the 75 would be too wide. For t hose that have shot interiors, what lens sizes do you find practical for homes i n the smaller than mansion size.
Second, I have 3ea 1200 watt strobes and one Nikon SB24 (GN about 220) on a slav e that can be hidden. I have two 24x36" softboxes. I will read everything I can in preperation as far as the lighting is concerned, (and practice at home), but are there any hints you can pass along or things to especially watch out for. I suspect window light will be my main concern. I do have a polaroid back.
I'll probably shoot Astia pushed 1 stop, but have thought about taking some Fuji RTP 64 for ambient interior light "mood" shots. Thoughts?
