Scott Hargis Interview Tonight: 8 p.m. PT


UPDATE: The interview, very much worth reading, is archived here.

Long-time Strobist reader and architectural photographer Scott Hargis, whom we have mentioned before, will be doing a live chat-style interview on Photo Camel tonight, at 8:00 p.m. Pacific Time in the US (which is GMT -8).

Scott specializes in efficiently shooting architectural interiors for real estate, and makes heavy use of his speedlights in the process. If you are into small-flash interior lighting and Scott is talking, you'll wanna be listening.

Wow. I could look through at those photos all day. I'm sure there are many strobist aspects to notice. To me, what really stands out photo after photo, is that he nails the ambient and flash balance every time. The scene through the window is just as gorgeous as what's inside.

Very nice! Thanks for letting us know. But at 5am on a Saturday morning I'm still sleeping, so I hope that I can read the interview afterwards...

You have probably heard of the "i heart photograph" blog, but there was a great post today that used off-camera lighting in a ... unique way. Check it out: http://iheartphotograph.blogspot.com/2008/02/rebecca-hinden.html

Love the site - thanks for sharing!

I hope the interview is available afterward. I'm working at the time, but really want to absorb it. This is an area of shooting I'm interested in and a little primer will be good.

Even if you're not a real estate or interior photographer, I bet Scott's techniques would be very useful when doing environmental portraits.

Thanks a ton for these links. Scott's work is a standout. I do a lot of this work to pay the bills and challenges abound. From real estate agents that don't understand the laws of photography (or physics at times -- "can you make sure that the ocean view [that is 20 miles away obscured by a tree and several rooftops] is clear?") to harsh sunlight streaming into half of a red walled room leaving the other half completely dark. Another challenge is light temperature so I'd like to try Scott's technique in overpowering the inside ambient enough to eliminate WB issues in post.

Yes, the interview will be available afterwards.

They'll be doing it live in the forum as far as I can tell. Probably not the best venue for a "live" interview.

Looks like if you want to ask questions after the interview during the "open" period, you do have to be a member of the forum.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and encouraging others to add to the pool of information.
You can see the results of your inspiration on a series I've done in some challenging light situations here http://lyndersaydigital.com/photo/pix/pix/mmpix.html
Not all of the images make use of strobe, but when they do, it's always small flash, usually modified and at arms length or on one of those useful Manfrotto lightstands you've mentioned in the past.
I'm not afraid to use big strobe kit, but that approach would have fundamentally changed what I was trying to achieve with this series of photographs.

Found this amongst my daily sites to hit up on the National Geographic's OurShot:

Thought the fellow Strobists would enjoy it, quite a unique shot.
