Images of architectural interiors present particular challenges for retouchers. In this class, architecture photographer Mike Kelley will show you how to use exposure blending, manual masking, advanced blemish removal, curves adjustments and other techniques to achieve stunning interior shots. You'll see how Mike overcomes extreme dynamic range, color casts from various sources and difficult perspective issues to create a professional interior architectural photograph.

Amazing class. Mike is a great artist - I've been following him for sometime already and he has a great eye not only for architectural photography but for all depth geometrical image capture. His commercial airplane posters are a delight.
A MUST -- If you shoot interiors. I loved this class. I have been dabbling in some non-serious real estate shoots for some time now and have been asked to shoot some more professional spaces. While I have gotten away with "winging it" for some time now, I knew I was missing an entire block of information when it came to certain shooting and editing methods. I loved how short this series was too and did not even need a live shoot (taking up more class time) to get the concepts down.
The only thing missing is that I would like to know what lens would be best for most interiors. Some wide lenses have distortion, etc. So this would be my ONLY question.
Mike is easy to listen to, entertaining without trying too hard, doesn't deviate on random stories that have nothing to do with the class hah (as some instructors do). I am going to go dig up other classes by him. Thanks for such a well put together class.

Great class... and just to be a smartass: The Quote is from Antoine de Saint-Exupery and goes like this: Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away...
