Some fabulous work in this thread guys!

Anyone doing 'real estate' type work on a smaller scale, like caravans, motor homes, or the like? I've recently become the official-unofficial product photog for my employer (I'm actually employed as an IT guy.) Most of the stuff I've done so far is the interiors of custom-built vehicles kitted out as mobile medical units and so on. Imaging a semi trailer rebuilt as a motor home and you're not far off the mark.

I've recently upgraded from a 400D to a 5DII and I'm loving the extra width that it gives me (using 17-40 in both cases) although the barrelling is a problem. Still learning how to light the suckers though - I'm mostly restricted to on-camera flash and very short timeframes (in and out in 30-60 minutes, tops.)

Todd they look great. Good verticals, everything lit well. I think you nailed it- probably just want to shoot them earlier to get some sky in there as you said. The warm rocks and wood would play wonderfully with a nice cobalt blue sky.

Thanks Mike.

Yes, I'd meant to be there quite a bit earlier but by the time I got there, the sky had turned dark, so I worked on angles and positioning. I'm waiting for the full moon on Tuesday to go back and shoot these properly.

I use LensFixCL to batch correct barrel distortion on all my shots. Couldn't live without it. $30 for the plugin for Lightroom/Aperture.

Have you used LR3 new LC tool? If so, how do they compare?

I know the PFRE guy says that the LR3 is pretty solid. I use it all the time, but also wind up checking into CS4 to transform a pic or two.....

Yeah I do the same thing. Sometimes my verticals aren't perfect straight out of the camera. I don't really know if I need to drop the coin on LR3 though, when Aperture does just what I need it to do.

I have been shooting some Real estate photography for my wife who is a Realtor and use the LR3 distortion/vertical correction and been extremely pleased with it. I haven't tried Lensfixcl so I don't have anything to compare to.

Damn, seems to be an OS/X app only - anyone want to recommend a Windows equivalent? (Preferably a LIghtroom plugin.)

QUOTED IMAGE

Todd I think this last one is exceptionally stunning! The shallow rock steps in the foreground really adds to the overall composition! Were these tripod mounted or handheld?

Thanks man, yes, those were on a tripod. (most of what I do is on a tripod). I wish my hands were that steady... I'd be a surgeon or something that pays better! ;-)a

Still working out my technique but I think I'm getting the feel for it, as I can reproduce it pretty well without much trouble.

Three-shot ambient HDR plus two or three fill flash shots layered in either color blend mode or normal blend mode + opacity to taste, plus some masking, to bring out colors and specular highlights.
