Hey guys, So I'm trying to nail down where I can improve and I know there's plenty of areas. Lots.
I'm more of a Run & Gun guy, my clients don't want Magazine Quality Images for their homes because they're selling 200k homes the same day it lists...
Regardless, I'm always trying to improve and pretty hard on myself so I'm asking for help.
T3I, Sigma 10-20 dc-hsm 1:4-5.6
Manfrotto Tripod and a Newwer 660 II Speedlight.
I try a couple of different methods but haven't nailed anything down.
Bracket shots normally consist of 3 bracket shots 1 stop or 2 stops apart. If I feel like I need to I'll do a 5 bracket shot all 1 stop apart. -2 -1 0 +1 +2
I've had pretty terrible luck fusing brackets in Photomatrix that I bought after trying photoessentials. I just seem to ever work very well.
I seem to have better luck doing a couple stops with a good flash bounce. It never seems consistant. And the lens seems really soft around the edges to a point it worries me.
Here's my goal one day. These appear multi bracket and fused and combo with flash...
Here's my work with more under listing tab at the top.
As far as pp goes, I have CS5. So I import photos, browse the ones I like and open them in raw and make all my adjustments etc....
