Well, after 2 weeks reading this thread from the beggining to the end, I'm ready to post.

First of all, I'm really sad that Mike's pics and videos are private, I believe they would be truly helpful.

Second, I'm a photographer as you, but I usually take pictures for interior designers and furniture companies, not realtors.

Third, I was thinking about making a list with all the workflow posted here by these marvellous photographers with examples of result, but as everyone else, time is short for me. If someone would like to help me, I would be really happy, just PM me. I'm willing to share my workflow if someone thinks it would be helpful.

Fourth, I'm really needing some feedback, my clients usually like my results, but I'm usually thinking that I'm missing something, I still didn't find the magic button on my camera that makes images shine. I already tried some techniques like the multi layered flash that Mike uses, but I usually think it looks to fake for my clients, not that I don't like the results. The point is, my clients are happy, but I'm getting unmotivated.

Sorry for the very long post.

I'm always fascinated that some people love using flash and others seem to avoid it, yet the pictures still turn out great.

Hi,
My first post! Here are a few from a recent shoot in London, shot using the 24mm, 17mm and 45mm TS-E's:

You can see some more here (external link) if you like.

beautiful work!
#1 looks like you could play with highlights some and increase the details to make something interesting. You don't have "image editing ok" selected in your UCP (user control panel) or I would volunteer something.
#2 and #3 are just gorgeous!!

stunning work, just stunning Jiddle!
care to explain your setup and lighting?
everything looks so just darn perfect--had to find something to nitpick, so here goes, in #3 the reddish rug is a bit off centered :)

Hey folks,
this is my first post here and it is a little unorthodox, it is a pool. If you have the time, you may want to read how I got here to this point, so please refer to this: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1287191

I had never shot outdoor or indoor real estate or architecture photography before 2013. I am a glamour/fashion/portra​it/landscape/sports photographer but suffered severe health problems in 2010 and am just now starting to get back into the business after almost 3 years of laying in bed recovering. I haven't the ability to restart those fields of photography just yet but a neighbor and good friend asked (probably felt he was doing me some good to get me out of the house) me to shoot some real estate listings he had. I was desperate for something to do and did them. Needless to say it took a lot of reading and research on many sites (God bless POTN) and am doing fairly well at it now. People are now asking me to expand my business and since my health now allows me more freedom I am starting to become more active. Nothing approaching the genius I see here but at least I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, not to mention earn the first paycheck in a long time :)

The newest project is a guy who I shot three houses for (all sold immediately based on the photos to out of state buyers, so he likes me :) now wants me to shoot the pools he builds for resorts, going back many years sometimes. The biggest problem is accessing the aerial viewpoint and that is where I need some help from you kind folks.

Here is a photo I took today from roof of 4 story resort of pool he built many years ago (he is wanting to start advertising and marketing, he never had to before the downturn). I took 5 shots RAW across top and bottom for total of 10 exposures as well as doing 3 shot bracketed exposures of each shot. I had polarizer on and had to use my 24-105 and 18-55 IS USM II since I could not justify damaging my 24L 1.4 II and had to climb up a fireman's ladder to roof, just not reasonable, not strong enough yet.

Edited in LR, merged into Panorama in CS6, added some contrast and clarity, adjusted a few color sats such as aqua for the pool and red for the tile around the pool. I thought about some psuedo HDR or even real HDR or just some sharpening and high pass etc.

Could you seasoned pro's help me out and let me know how this image looks and suggest what I should do to make it the best possible? I would greatly appreciate it.

And lastly, I had damage to my vision, so if my colors, sats, contrast are way off, just say so, I am having to re-learn how others see world compared to me. Often, I oversaturate and contrast my images. I have a thick skin, so tell me what I need to hear, no matter what the consequences. the worst thing would be to not tell me something I could fix and let me lose the contract that right now could result in a significant sum of money---lay it on me, whatever the cost! No hard feelings :)

MANY thanks!!

William "Abbey"

Thanks William, I appreciate the compliment! My lighting setup is listed on the previous page, and more photo sets and setup details can be seen on my flickr. pm me if you have any specific questions, and I'll try to help where I can :)

As far as your pool shot goes, I think the color is good, and the elevated perspective is great, but IMHO I would crop tighter to draw more focus onto the pool.

Anyways, im glad to hear your health is improving, and wish you success on starting back up in photography

It's usually a matter of prefered techniques and time. For the low cost market, only HDR works, as it's "faster" than lighting. I'm going to try using lights in my next shoots, since they usually make the post production easier and faster.
IMHO, everyone should try learning both, sometimes, HDR or Exposure Fusion keeps the mood of the room, while light "can make the mood".

I really like the saturation, pool is the kind of product that i want to see bright and colorful, I would only crop it a bit and try shooting it at another hours, the shadow on the low right bugs me a little.

thanks Klaus! you are right, I should have waited til later in the day to shoot this. The building curves in a crescent shape to block the morning sun and I shot it around 10:30 local time to avoid the crowds on a Saturday. I will plan ahead better and take that into account.

thanks for the comment on saturation, I was concerned I had overdone it. Thanks!!
