Yes umbrellas and possibly boxes. Learning the correct placement of the lights at the moment. We've used our constant light for bouncing off walls, ceilings etc but not powerful enough to help with the window exposures. We will also be using them with the boxes for smaller jobs like, planes, cars etc if needed. Product pics as well if the call is ever needed. Basically the Enfuse program is good enough for blown out windows, but certain areas Id like lit up more. And I would like crisper color breaks. Lots to learn but very eager to learn it!

Thank you.

And strobes would allow you to lose those muddy areas of the images.

With flashes on low power and mounted on the little stand that comes with many of them, you can hide them behind things and fill those dark places in an otherwise enfused image. The Yonguno 560II is the perfect choice for this job. It is a high power manual flash that is easily adjustable to very low power and it's very inexpensive so you can buy several and place them wherever need. They have built in optical slaves (great for real estate because there's no one else to trip your slave) as well as radio slaves - if you want to use Yongnuo's transmitter. It's a really great choice. Here's a link: http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …yn_560_iii_spee​dlite.html (external link)

Thanks guys, appreciate the info once again.

rgs - before I respond, ask questions about what you wrote with the other flash I need to brush up on some terms and what certain features are for to make sure that light can work for other shoots than realty! If you have the time, can you PM me please? I tried to PM you but I do not have enough posts yet. For the tips you already have giving us I feel I owe you a dinner! And you keep on helping which means a lot to us. Everyone had to start somewhere and for the realty photo shoot part this is our start and I appreciate you and everyone else of course taking time out of your day to help us.

Again, thanks everyone :)
