    Although it is much more time consuming, lighting separate areas of the
    image and using layer masks will give you the best balancing of both
    exposure and color temperature.

    kill the ambient light with a fast shutter speed, low iso, around f8-13,
    and lots of strobes. done.

    Color cast can now be fixed in LR4 by painting in another color
    temperature. My problem with flash for indoor shoots is the rooms end up
    looking differently from what they look like in real life. I had to be done
    really carefully and subltly otherwise you end up with a deliberate flash
    looking image. the best one of out the lot was the last image, the flash
    was blended pretty well.

    What’s “exposure fusion”? How do I do it?

    Pity you didn’t mention the most ideal third option, which is combining a
    fused image with a lit scene. This approach actually does enable you to get
    the best of both worlds. You can have correctly exposed windows without the
    muted colors in the interior and combine color accuracy with a good
    interior atmosphere by masking parts of the lit image into the fused

    Thank you – great examples. Most dramatic to me was the kitchen with the
    hideous color cast on the cabinets in the fused image vs. the natural color
    in the lit image.

    Nice video showing the differences between using fused images vs. lighting
    interiors with flash. Most dramatic to me is the one of the kitchen shown
    in the thumbnail – there is a hideous yellow cast in the cabinets that is
    missing in the lit image, yet the fused image shows the background items
    much better. Wonder how many lights he used for the lit image of the
    kitchen and how many more would be needed to have the same background
    ambiance as the fused image?
