I am a fairly new employee at an architecture firm and really enjoy photography. The firm hires "real professionals" for large and high profile jobs. I do a fair job of taking project photographs for small jobs not worth the professional fee. I love the opportunity to fill a void for the office. The office has a Kodak Professional DCS Pro SLR with a Nikon AF-S 24-85mm lense. I am still figuring this camera out. I have always shot with Canon. What I am looking for help on has nothing to do with what equipment I use. I have gotten comments from the boss that the lights in my interior shots are over-exposed. He is right, they are pretty bad hot spots in the photos. I have always had this problem, but I admit that I let the camera do the metering for me. I do not have/use a light meter. Does someone have a suggestion on a technique/trick to get the light input without actually blowing out the lights? I am also OK in photoshop, but I would like to fix the problem on the front end, not the back. Any suggestions?
