    I was phtoographing a condo yesterday and ran into a bit of a problem. See pic below:

    Notice how the interior of the house is fine and the exterior is nothing but a white blur. This condo had an awesome view and I wasn't able to capture it and the interior and the same time. If the exterior exposed correctly, the interior would be incredibly dark; and vis versa. Now the obvious remedy would be to expose the exterior and use the flash to illuminate the interior, but I hate using the flash and I'm sure there is a way to do this without it.

    If anyone could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    It is only possible to capture a certain range of light levels...we don't have the technology to get what we can see...yet.

    One solution is to take two exposures...one for the interior and one for the view out the window...then combine them afterward.

    Thats a pretty good idea. I'll keep that in mind next time.
