Most times you don't need to see 3 walls if you are doing a 2 point perspective. Heck, you don't need to the whole chair on the left. Just enough to know what it is.

I was about to say I thought the stove arrangement was terrible but then realized that it was the wide-angle lens that made that area look so deep, too deep. I would have backed up as far as possible and used a longer lens to get same POV but with better perspective.

I actually did do what you're saying but forgot to change the focus so it came out blurry and unusable.

Thanks for the tip. Will definitely keep this in mind. That alone is probably the best tip I've heard for real estate photography. Going to do another shot and see how it turns out bc that's why I panned so wide was to get the three walls in there. Seriously you have no idea how much that simple explanation cleared things up for me.

The first kitchen shot is great and clearly shows all features. Using an ultra wide angle lens on a large room may bring some artistic concerns, but I know from 200+ real estate shoots that my client agents love them. Obviously the distortion of the cabinets in the stovetop is too much and is a much better shot with a tighter lens farther away. Small rooms often require a 16-20mm wide angle to make a landscape photo work at all.

This is obviously only really an option for real estate photos, and a more obvious stylistic error for architectural or commercial photos.

Thanks. That's why I do them....to show all the features in one shot.

I hope this one is better didn't pan out as far so a lot less distortion going on. I didn't stage it like I did the previous time left childrens chairs and dog with his blanket on the couch. Just practicing and so far got a couple a good tips from members here regarding my last post.

First thing that jumps out at me is the 2 different WB in the room. The left side is Warm from the light, the right side has a noticeable blue cast that you get from sunlight. Its almost evenly split..You can do a quick graduated filter in LR to even it out. A viewer wont necessarily know what is wrong, but they will know it doesnt look right to them.
The other is there is still a slight distortion on the left side. RE photographers will quickly notice it because we automatically look for it.. :p
Same with the WB issue. Before I started shooting RE, I really didnt pay as much attention to the color of light on interiors. We all subconsciously see it, it just didnt mean as much before.

I did notice the split in white balance after posting but didn't notice the distortion to the left. What's the easiest method in Lightroom to fix the distortion and get things straightened out?

every so often you will have to export out to PS or PSE to fine tune the distortion in an image even after you correct for it in LR.

Yeah, unless a room has no windows or something this is almost always a huge problem. I personally am a proponent of blasting as much flash a possible into a room, and not spending much time doing that at all, and then using those flash layers to help things along in post with your ambient frames. Again, not taking long in post either.

Color is tricky no matter how you slice it though. Even as nice and clean as a heavy flash frame looks there will still be the same type of gradations in color, just not to the same extent. I also think the flash frame gradations (due to light bouncing more in the far areas than near) are less detectable because the frames give a sort of washing out effect... kinda like if you poured and splashed red paint all over a room. There would in fact be areas more deeper red than others, but it would really all just look red, haha.

This is solid, but fixing a few details would make it much better. The lack of ambient light and the dark window make it seem less warm than I am used to. I would prefer the composition to show more of the seating bar area and not the garbage can. The objects on the counters seem cluttered and not well organized. Its good to show all the kitchen features in a photo, but this could be better.
