Thanks. These are all shot in natural light only. They are 7 exposure hdr's at 1.3 Ev spacing which covered the outdoor light as well as the light indoors.

Here's one more shot.

I like this, but would mask off the windows and bring the room up in post a stop.

I can never get my window transition to look that good.

Secret?

Yeah, I need to update my LR2 to version 3. I already bought it, I just haven't made the switch yet.

Do the upgrade. It's so much better than LR2 it's not even funny.

However, there isn't a great lens profile for the Tokina 11-16. I found one someone here made but it still needs tweaking after applying it.

On the topic of stills vs video vs virtual tour vs interactive floor plan, they all have their place if you think about who your customer is. A lot of sellers hire an agent based on the buzzers and whistles they offer, be it floor plans, video, etc. How many of these special features sell houses is debatable. However, some sellers expect certain toys as a part of their listing. As a Realtor, I get physically sick watching virtual tours because of the distortion. Sellers love em, many buyers don't care. Depends on who your customer is and who you are trying to sell.

I agree on the virtual tours (the 360 degree ones). Most actual buyers I've spoken with hate them. Realtors tend to be the only people who seem to like them and (luckily) many of them are starting to see the light and stop asking for them.

I will say, however, realtors who are offering things like interactive floorplans and video walkthroughs are finding it much easier to win listings because realtors (as a whole) all offer the same stuff to potential sellers--marketing, experience, big name company (if they work for a big name company), open houses, etc. When a realtor comes along and says they also do interactive floorplans and video walkthroughs, it's a no-brainer for the seller.

These things are designed to make it more likely someone who looks at the realtor's listing online will actually ask for a showing. They're not really designed to sell the property directly. They do quite well at getting more people interested in seeing the property--unless it's just not a great property to begin with. ;)

I liked the first shot you posted a little more, but this is very nice also.
I think the interior could come up slightly, probably not by a whole stop.
Nice work.

The Essential Guide to: Lighting Interiors - Techniques for lighting with small flash - By Scott Hargis

That is a great book for understanding lighting and where and how to place them. The techniques can get very time consuming, but the information is very valuable to anyone that shoots interiors. You just never know when you might need a second speed light and this book shows you where to place it and how to bounce it.

For me, flash use is more of a fill light. I try to let the camera exposure get the room where I want it, then fill the room with diffused light using a Gary Fong Lightsphere. It sends the light 360 degrees and I point the flash up and forward so that there is slightly stronger light bounced off the ceiling. This diffuser does a very good job of softening the light, assuming I'm not standing too close to cabinets or something like that. If I have a shot where I need to get close to cabinets, I bounce the light off the opposite side of the room.

Did you use SNS or PM?

These were all done using SNS. I did do a curves adjustment on these which darkened them a bit. In retrospect, the images would have looked better without the adjustment.

Alright, here's what I have..

So, what did you end up delivering? Hope it worked out okay.


Replacing my Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24mm, Canon 17-55mm, Sigma 30mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, and 150-500mm with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. I still have the 17-55 and the 30 available for sale.

I apologize for items out of place (travel bags...etc) nothing was staged for the shots. Just thought the natural lighting was great at the moment
