Ahahaha...I have a 30x40 frame..and a 4x6 photo...improvise!

Also, I have a shoot this weekend with a really small house, like <750 sq feet, this is going to be interesting

In addition to what Mike said obviously get the widest lens possible. On a small house, opening windows and doors can lead your eye out and make the space feel bigger, especially if the windows are casements. I will usually get as far into the corners as i can to get as much coverage at an acute angle, you can use the angles to make the room feel bigger.

normally here at this time of year it is -40 degrees and that's impossible, but it's actually high 30's right now for some reason, so I might just do that.

In addition to what Mike said... Greg

Greg, you have some brilliant interior images, particularly like the staging of the family room with the liquor decanters and also the office cabinets with the twilight sky through the window. I'm going to have to take another look at your site when I have a few minutes.

What's up gents? Some good looking shots lately.

Just checking in. I got a real job so haven't been shooting much, however I landed a job shooting a equestrian ranch this Saturday. Honestly I wanted the day off so I tripled my prices to scare her off but she wanted it anyway. Figured at that point it was worth it....lol

Make sure you post those pics.

Thanks for all of the comments and feedback everyone! It seems like the government/education field is a better clientele for this kind of product. There is plenty to be had here in Ottawa, so hopefully this first project will act as a "foot in the door".

Something like this, if well marketed, could land you some other gigs for things like this. Just curious, how long did the entire process take you? How long onsite and how long building the tour?

The software I'm currently using is Panotour Pro by Kolor. It has a great GUI and works well on my mac - I use it alongside Lightroom, Photoshop, and PTGui. It took a while to get a grasp of how everything works together, but after a lot of exposure the work comes much easier.

The capture process for this pilot project took about an hour (no lighting, bracketing and manual focus) using a fisheye lens. I am hoping to do some tests using a wide angle to get better overall resolution - but it would involve a lot more PP!

The tour building took the most time - about half an hour of processing and stitching per panorama and a few hours to compile and fine tune the tour.

Anyone have any ideas on how to get an elevated shot of an exterior without having to rent a cherry picker?

Extend your tripod fully and grab it by the feet and lift over your head. Use a 10 second timer. If shooting during daylight, no problem getting fast enough shutter speeds.

Strap your tripod to a 6 or 8 foot ladder...

This (external link) looks pretty cool. There's must be a simple way to build one with odds and ends from the hardware store but I'd hate to use trial and error with a good camera.

I have more than 25 years real estate experience.

Thank you for your comments but could you show me an example from your own photography?

Hi Joe,
Just go to my web: Http://www.LetPictures​Talk.com (external link) and pull the homes down from the menu. Double click on one of the homes in the sub-menu and view them one by one.
