Looks good, I would crop from the top left to just past that TV. IMO, too much ceiling.

Just got done editing the whole set, here's a couple of delivered files. These guys say they have something "epic" for me to shoot this weekend :-)

I think I may have shot the most epic 1br condo ever, this place was was wired with more LEDs than a night club. In the cabinets, bathroom mirror, everywhere.

Anyway, first time doing twilight interiors. Always open to critiques.

I have to say, the pics you use for tv are kinda distracting, theyre more interesting than the actual subject.

The reason I did that is because these condos in particular, you're really buying the lifestyle that comes with living at the Santa Monica beach, so I thought I'd put some local images on the screens. Is it too distracting?

I think so, its jarring compared to the scene you are showing. You have a non-stop action image in what is a serene scene..

Try an image with less contrast, maybe softer beach scene? Or just a black TV. If that sliding door was really open, I know I wouldn't be watching the TV.

K, I swapped out the images on tv with just marine life mostly, putting something on the TVs was actually a requirement. Anywho, TVs aside, this place had kind of a unique wall texture too.

I still think its a bit much. Its too contrasty for the image. I would go with a pastel image

So I have two questions for everyone...

one is everyone's wide angle distortion correction (I'm shooting a Canon 17-35mm 2.8). Right now I just use lightrooms built in profiles.

My other question is, normally you're supposed to follow a set of rules for having your lines run parallel with the frame (if that makes sense) but do any of you break this rule on exterior shots? And if so, do you correct crazy distortion in post or just let it be...it's not always ideal to be right in front of a house...sometimes you're shooting from down or up.

In rare occasions, you might not need to "fully" correct for vertical distortions. When the camera is tilted up or down more than 15 or 20 degrees, I feel like the image will get a very stretched, artificial feel.

Correct it until the image looks natural, let your eyes be the judge.

I correct all vertical distortion - especially exteriors. I have had client specifically complain about other photographer who gave them photographs of houses that were "leaning". Horizontal distortion is more of a judgement call. I do sometimes leave convergence when shooting ceilings, upstairs or downstairs views and some other things but, when I do, the convergence is so extreme that it is clearly intentional and it is accompanied by a "record shot" that is normally corrected.
