My thought is they would do a better job in such a nice place at hiding the cable wires. And yes, I want to live there too! This makes me miss the city.

Edit: I see now I'm not the first to mention this.

QUOTED IMAGE

Lovely home, and nice work. I'm no expert in RE photography, but one thing I would have done in this shot is collapsed the clothes rack and slid it under the bed for the shot.

I'll let others with more experience add more, but is the last shot level? I don't know if it's just me, or if it has a very slight lean to the right.

It's level but I think that the camera is facing the counter at a slight angle. I thought it was just me so I posted it anyway

Yeah, with a very wide angle it could just be the angle. In any case, it is very slight. I just looked at the full gallery on Flickr... they have putt putt in their backyard?!?! How awesome. I think you did well representing the house. The only other thing I see is that the night time kitchen photo is a touch cooler in temp than the rest. Again, it's a very minor issue if an issue at all. Good looking photos of a beautiful home. I like the palm tree leaves in the upper right of the backyard image. Did you make any other exterior photos? That's one thing that seems to be missing from the gallery.

I already sent these on to the client, but am curious, in your opinion how bad is the color temp problem in this photo? I was just looking through and it caught my eye this time around. But, apparently it didn't when I was initially processing the photo.

I think part of it for me is that the couch is blue, so it's making the situation worse than it actually is. Thoughts?

As an aside, this is a new construction staged home so there's two end table lamps in the living room (one can be seen in the photo below) but they aren't plugged in. Having those on would have helped to even out the color temp a bit...

You've got a mixed lighting issue. The blue couch is from the window light, and it doesn't look like you balanced the WB in the kitchen. I downloaded the one on Flicker and ran it through a WB adjustment using the mantle over the fireplace as my white point, and the colors in both rooms adjusted and the blue became less noticeable.

Just my 2 cents worth, but I don't mind the different color temps if I was looking to buy that property. The warm kitchen stands out from the background & shows me what I want to see. When I want to see what the living room looks like, I'll find that shot to look at.

The WB in the kitchen really bothers me. It's very red. I would use the pitcher on the counter or the crown molding as a white point to start to correct the color. Once the the color in the kitchen is neutral, you can brush in color changes in the living room.

It doesn't bother me, & the cooler you "correct" the kitchen, the cooler the living room will be. To me, kitchens say, "family, food, & warm memories". And I tend to like warm over cool or neutral for some things.

Hi guys, I'm looking to get into RE photography and need CC. This is a friend's house so I did what I could with the clutter / personal items without having to move around too much.

I'll be showing these to a higher end realtor so any little detailed CC is appreciated!


Canon 6D + 17-40


Photos look decent for that level of house.

If it were me trying to sell the house with pics, I'd prob pick up those area rugs to showcase the hardwood floors. same with the bathroom, just remove every piece of clutter in there. btw whats on the ceiling in there?.


Canon MarkII 5D * Canon 70-200mm f/4L * Canon 17-40mm f/4L * Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II * Canon 50mm f/1.8 * Venus 60mm f/2.8 2x Ultra Macro

Sorry. It's not warm - warm would be OK. It's RED. And it's not an occasional color shifted highlight in an otherwise well balanced image, it's the entire room. It's clearly off color instead of an interpretation. The living room can easily be warmed up once the rest of the image has a good WB.

Yeah, I have a really hard time with color temps. The more I fool with them the more my brain resists the change. It's as if the first time I see a photo is how my brain calibrates itself to that scene and every change after that makes it "wrong." Something I need to work on. I usually do minimal color temp adjustments because of it.

I still struggle to get this photo correct, the more I cool the kitchen the worse the living room gets. I guess the kitchen still doesn't really bother me that much, however, it is definitely "wrong."

Here's how I'd like to see the kitchen, but then I can't get the living room to come back without it looking very strange:

Nice pic and property! Global adjustments to temp are going to give you varied results for rooms that have multiple temperature light sources. Im not sure what program you are using for editing, but a simple spot adjustment in LR or layer mask in PS will let you spot correct temp. values without having to apply to the entire image.

this should resolve the temp imbalance in your shot. hope this helps!

I'm using LR, but with spot adjustments to temp there doesn't seem to be any access to the dropper tool for picking base white. :( Without it my brain goes crazy and I can't ever seem to find neutral.
