I'm not an RE photographer by any stretch of the imagination, but I would love to get more into it purely for extra work. Took this today when I was out testing my 5Dc (which I received in the post a few hours ago) with my 17-40L.

Very little PP on this single exposure - corrected distortion, added some contrast, and cropped.

Question for you guys, I know most people recommend a 10-22mm for real estate, but would 24mm be good enough on a 1.6 crop to start off? The day after I bought my 24-70 (bought it monday), my car shocks took an unfortunate turn for the worst and needed replacing, I've wanted to get into real estate for a long while now and was planning to get the 10-22 next week to completely cover my 10-200mm range, but now it looks like I can only afford some flashes for a while..so I'm just trying to find out if I can get started or if I should not get my hopes up and wait until my bank has recovered so I can kill it again.

You're not gonna want to hear this but,

A. Sell the 24-70. 24 is not nearly wide enough on a crop for anything, let alone real estate. Get a 10-22. An UWA zoom and tele is all you really need :)
B. I had the same setup for awhile. Sold the 24-70 for a 50 1.4 and added a couple hundred and picked up a 5d. Haven't looked back.

My current setup is

17tse
15mm fish
17-40
50 1.4
70-200 f4

5d, 1d3

the 17-40, 50 and 70-200 pretty much covers everything i'd ever need to shoot. The fisheye is pretty much solely for self portraits and the 17ts is for RE/architecture, but I could get on without it just fine and it now serves as a backup to the TS.

It will make your job tougher. I only use my 10-22 for RE and rarely shoot @ 22mm and those would mostly only exteriors.

Not selling the 24, I shoot other things too, cars, people, sports, etc..if I've made 70mm work for landscapes and cars, I can make 24mm work too.. just always been really curious about real estate and I know some Realtors. I'll just wait then, thanks!

Not a dream home, but still I always take the chance to refine technique if I've got the time...

Polishing... (external link) by mike kelley / mpkelley.com (external link), on Flickr


This was an absolute nightmare to shoot, between the 6 foot deep snow and wooded location which brought no sunlight. I tried to make it feel as pretty as possible. Took insane amounts of cleanup to get it to look good. I need bigger lights.

Lighting info is my usual 430EXII on a stick with a gel to enhance light fixtures, then blended in photoshop- not that I'm not adding lights where there are none, just making them brighter and poppier ;)

all with pocketwizard flex/ac3/mini.

Depending on when you need the lens, the 10-22 + 24-70 combo would be amazing. I like my 16-35 in replacement to a 24-70 though ;)

Yep, 10-22 coming this summer, would you guys recommend the sigma 3.5 over the others?

FWIW - I just got the Tokina 11-16 2.8 and have had the Tammy 28-75 2.8 for a few years. Both are really brilliant lenses.

Looks like it is time to start hitting up a couple of realtor friends to start practicing indoor shots...

2.8 would be nice but I'm not sure if I like the gap between 16 and 24mm in my set..

There's nothing interesting in that gap on a crop.
