I recently took some interior shots of a friend's home, as a favour, as she is trying to become a professional interior decorator. Most of the shots turned out beautifully, but I was disappointed with the shots where I was facing into the room, with the windows directly ahead of me, behind the furniture. I bracketed, but they still came out too dark, with the windows too bright. I know I should meter for somewhere in the middle, but how do I expose properly for the room, without making the windows look like big bright streaks of white? She had shear curtains hanging in the windows, and I would like them to look as nice as possible, while making sure the furniture is properly exposed. Do I shine light into the room, towards the windows, to counteract the sunlight? Do I simply use reflectors to bounce the light back onto the furniture? I used Fuji NPH 160, which I've never used before, and I was extremely happy with the grain and texture of most of the shots. I know I should be using a 4X5 for architectural photography, but right now the equipment is out of my reach financially. I'm hoping to do more interior work, hopefully professionally, so any help would be appreciated.
