Hey all, I need your suggestions. I was viewing Discoduck's photographs and link http://16donmills.livi​ngphoto.ca/ (external link). I sent him a PM asking what he was using as a template as I thought it was really nice and wanted to use one like it.

Unfortunitly, Discoduck can't recall where he got it. So, can anyone help me out with a few suggestions. I have looked on the internet but cant find anything that looks like the template he is using.

Thank you.

By the way, I found this information using Chrome, going to inspect element and searching the code.

Yeah sorry can't remember :(

I'm using prettyPhoto for the image viewer. It's nice but sometimes a pain if you have to post up a lot of photos.

No worries Disco. I thought of using the power of the masses. It`s amazing what you cab find out when tons of people look into something.

Some great pictures in this thread!

Question: My parents have asked me to take some pictures of their house that they're putting on the market soon. What would be a good lens to use for this? I'm thinking a wide angle; would either the 35mm f/2 or 24mm f/2.8 be a good choice, or am I way off? Not trying to break the bank here. I have a T1i, and mainly do pet photography so houses are a totally different ball game for me!

on a crop sensor, you're going to be looking at a much wider FOV.

most of the people who shoot real estate/interiors on here with crop cameras tend to use the canon 10-22mm, or other lenses of similar focal length.

Remember that a T1I has a crop factor of 1.6 so your 28 mm lens will become a 44.8 mm lens...and in my opinion, that is not wide enough for interiors.

Here's a good link to help you start out: http://photographyforr​ealestate.net/ (external link). They have some pretty good pointers for starting out with a low budget.

What Luxury pointed out about starting with a 10-22 mm is a really good suggestion. I actually started out with a Canon 7D and a Canon 10-22 lens. My agents were really impressed with the images I was producing. I recently changed my camera body for a 5DMk2 and got a 17mm TSE lens as I want to get into architectural photography.

My suggestion to you if you just want to stay in Real Estate photography and starting out on a budget: Keep that T1i and get a used 10-22 lens. With the crop factor of your T1i, the 10-22 will become a 16-35. Perfect match ! And you will be surprised the quality of image that the 10-22 can provide.

I also suggest you start reading up on what technique you want to use: HDR or Flash. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. I presently use HDR but have been reading up on using flash. I think flash photography produces much nicer images than HDR but I am still practicing with flash and wont offer the service until I can produce quality images.

HDR is working out really nicely for me. I use HDR software from LR Infuse as I feel it produces a more "natural" finish...but, to each his own as I am certain others will vouch for other types of software. LR Enfuse is a software you can buy for a small donation. I donated 10$. I get free updates and all. I'm quite happy with it. *Works with Adobe Lightroom.

Anyways, good luck and hope you enjoy Real Estate photography. I have a full time job and do photography as a sideline. It's a good source of extra income that helps me pay for my photography gear...and maybe a good sideline for when I retire.

Thank you both for the info.! Phew, the 10-20mm is pretty pricey! I'm honestly not looking to get "serious" about real estate photography, just want to be able to get some nice shots of my parents house and know that with my current lenses (50mm f/1.8, the stock 18-55mm, and a 70-200mm f/4), that's not possible, especially in the smaller rooms.

So I'll have to keep an eye out to see if there are any good deals on a 10-20mm.. either that, or find something a bit more in my budget (I was trying to stay at around $300) that can do the job.

you could stitch for wider with your 18-55mm. But you'd have to remember to shoot a lot more than you think you need — so you can correct for distortion later.

Or you could rent a lens for one time use. It's less expensive than you might think.
