Here are a couple from a new house I shot this weekend. It's a very large house that is not yet occupied and these are additional shots after the standard ones are made.

Are the kitchen counters concrete made to look like slate or are they something else?

I didn't ask but it sure seemed like slate. Here's another shot of the kitchen.

I've been told I can't put my company on the photos because of mls restrictions.
You guys get that?

Here's a kitchen I shot today. This will probably be my first million dollar listing. :lol:

There's more, but I just started editing the folder....

I generally shoot the same way. However shooting too low in kitchens and bathrooms makes it hard to capture the countertops properly - you can lose a sense of depth by not getting the camera high enough!

I agree with this here but I do end up shooting a bit lower, typically about 3.5 ft off the ground. Kitchens get shot right to the point where you cannot see under the top wall kitchen cabinets (typically 4.5-5ft) and if I'm shooting a bedroom with a tall bed or over furniture I'll raise to 4-4.5".

I would presume that you've applied any lens profiles/corrections prior to creating the pano. Once you've stitched a pano you can't used the app's automatic lens correction components. It's no problem: just ignore the exif stuff and use software to make your perspective and/or geometric corrections.

Here are couple of unusual shots of an upstairs loft in a very large house which I photographed last week.

So I'm currently shooting with my 17-35mm 2.8 canon and love it but get a lot of distortion. What are the best sharpest budget lenses? It seems even being wider the rokinon 14mm 2.8 has less distortion..anyone have any experience with this? Also, cccc, what was your lighting setup in the above photos? Nice work.

This lens is a Canon EF-S 10-22. I use a 7DII so that would just about equal you 17-35 on FF. Architectural interiors do not need fast lenses 20 2.8 isn't needed. I have used aftermarket lenses and (with a few exceptions) I will stick with Canon USM and L because of the overall quality of the image - not necessarily sharpness but pretty consistent color and contrast - and because they focus accurately and are pretty well made.

All UWAs will distort but obvious distortion is more a matter of how wide the lens is set and your framing.

These are all available light blended exposures using LR HDR on a selected 3 to 5 frames taken from 7 shot 1 stop bracket made onsite.

I have done a lot of real estate and do blending for all of my shots but want to get into using lights to make things go quicker. I have 3 speedlights plus a rove light that is arriving tomorrow. I don't mind the distortion on my 17-35 too much but cutting a little out would be nice.

On site my camera is tripod mounted with a clip on the center post that holds my phone (a Note 5 - it's quite large) which serves as a remote and a bigger display for the camera via the DSLR Controller app. When I move, the whole rig moves as one piece. I level my tripod at a consistent mid chest height and rarely change that height. That gives a consistent look to the entire set of images. I use a 7 shot 1 stop bracket that my 7DII runs automatically and my remote setup allows touch screen focus on the phone. I can estimate the exposure quite accurately by sight on the phone's display and, since I use a 7 shot bracket while I plan to only blend 3-5 frames, I have a good deal of leeway with regard to exposure. The result is I can shoot a 3000 sq ft house (usually about 50-60 final images) in a little over an hour and rarely take more than 1.5 hours for larger houses. I could not do that with flash because because set-up for each shot is more tedious and required some testing and repeat.

In addition, using available light lets me get a more natural look and it especially lets me tie several areas of the house together in one exposure in a very natural looking way. I use flash some - usually in smaller rooms - and like the very clean look with no color shifts, but my clients like the blended images and are very outspoken about that.

The result of this is that I spend more time in post (maybe that's the time you want to save) but I kind of enjoy that and I've gotten quite efficient about post. My computer has a good deal of RAM, a fast quad core processor and my main HD is an SSD. I can usually finish PP in about 2 hours because I rarely have to wait on the machine.

Bottom line (I really dislike that expression), I prefer the available light look and it doesn't slow me down.
