Using HDR - high dynamic range - in Photoshop is
not difficult. You keep the aperture constant and take
at least 5 shots of the same subject - using a tripod - varying
the shutter speed.
Then you combine the five shots so that
the bright areas and the dark areas are all
exposed correctly. Here is a shot of the new hall
at VanDusen garden. Without the HDR, the exterior
and interior light levels would be too far apart.

To shoot an interior,
1. keep the camera level.
2. use a long shutter speed and medium aperture.
3. use a wide angle lens
4. add a bit of light, as here where I used two
250 watt lights to brighten up the scene which
would have been too contrasty without them.
However, you want the room to look as if it's
only lit by the lights in the room. So your added
lights cannot be too bright.
