beautiful shots, this has to help sell these houses as everyone looks at pics online before bothering to see the home in person

do you use the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens for all your interior pics?

I keep my 24-105L in a belt pouch in case I need it but it rarely gets used inside. I also avoid the widest end of the 10-22 as much as possible to prevent distorting the size of the room.

thanks, I'm looking to add a Wide Angle lens soon

have been considering the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM as it seems to be a bit more reasonably priced

any experience with the 10-18? to draw a comparison

thanks again for your insight

I haven't used it but I would miss the longer reach of the 10-22. The gap between 18mm and 24mm (or whatever your next lens is) is really much larger than you might think. All of the STM lenses have gotten good reports from users but they are lightly constructed and STM lenses are optimized for video. They really are top quality amateur lenses. That said, the 10-22s biggest weakness is that it is quite flare prone and really needs to be used with a lens hood much of the time. Even then it will flare even with bright windows in the frame.

I currently shoot RE interiors with 1 strobe and 2 speed lights. I'll add a couple of AD200's when my last couple invoices pan out.

Open concepts definitely make it tougher to use flash, but I'm having better luck with practice (only shooting RE for a couple months).

I blend 3 exposures (100, 400, 1600 ISO) and have minimal PP since the WB is dominated by window light and flash.

It takes me twice as long to shoot a property (2 hours for 45ish frames), but minimal time in PP other than letting Enfuse do it's thing.

Always curious to see how others approach this, efficiency is definitely the name of the game in my neck of the woods.

Two AD200's and 2 speed lights. Learning to work a lot quicker with multiple lights.

Here are a couple of images from a shoot the other day.
Both have an AD200 bounced into the ceiling for fill and highlight pop.
Camera was on a tripod, exposure set manually and AD200 fired TTL with -1 FEC.
