Seth, Nice photos but they are quite conservative, more journalistic than artistic. The same shots with the store filled with employees and customers would be far more compelling.

But, it's hard to be critical without knowing the purpose of the images. If they are merely technical practice, they look pretty good to me. From an aesthetic viewpoint, I would like them better if each photo had a distinct focal point. Or at least some sign of life.


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.

Thank you! Yea, it really was just for practice. Getting some shots with people should be my next form of practice...

Clients can access their images through smugmug.

If they want a complete "gallery", then smugmug supply a link.

But they can access individual images from your website at will.

This is obviously good because it means you provide an ongoing service they can access, you have just took charge of their data management in regards to images.

This means that anyone in a company can access the images when needed.

From YOUR website...

That's very cool. Do you find the properties or just shoot them?


The company finds them. Here is LA the movie industry is HUGE so even home owners get lined up to get they're houses shot.

Very nice shots. Good light balance. Definitely magazine worthy. You must have a pretty decent lens.

Hey Everyone,

Here is an image I took of a bedroom. Feel free to give me your impressions as I am learning to use flashes. This is my first attempt at 3 flashes for a single room and having them a different settings. I recently started to use 1 or 2 flashes on manual mode and full power...not the best ! I did some reading on the internet, bought some books and here I am with my first homework/project. It was 7 PM so no sun from windows.

PS: it's not for real estate.

Camera: Canon 5DMkII on tripod
Lens: Canon TS-E 17 MM
Aperture: f8
Exposure time: 1/30 sec
3 different flashes with Pocket Wizards TT1 and TT5s were used for this image:

Canon 430ex II positioned low and to the left of the camera, aimed at side of bed and night table: manual mode, 1/32, 50mm
Canon 580ex II positioned high right of camera, aimed at center of bed: manual mode, 1/2, 24mm
Canon 580ex II positioned low and far right of camera, aimed at desk: manual mode, 1/16, 50mm

Joe, I think if you turned up the power on the one to the lower left and bounced it off the wall to the left it would have given you a little better light on that side. To be honest, I like it a lot, except for that dark shadow on the left nightstand. This is where I think the higher powered bounce would have helped.

I bought Hargis' eBook and he likes to bounce his flashes a lot. I also know a good RE photog in Breckenridge and he does the same. Except, the guy in Breckenridge will tape a foam board to the wall and bounce off that to keep the light clean. Bouncing off colored walls can be extremely counter-productive as it can cause color casts. Also, the guy in Breckenridge said he pretty much keeps each flash around 1/8 to 1/16 power.

With that said, nice job! Are you using Pockewizards?

That light looks pretty good. Too bad there are no windows to get a nice twilight view or something, and no art on the walls.

Glad you like S Hargis' book.

I agree with everything you've said...I'm learning.

If Mike says he likes the light, then i'm in the right direction ! :D

Does anyone have any info on the new 5D3 and it's HDR feature? I've looked up a few sites and I can't seem to find a detailed explanation on it, other than it is listed as a feature. I am curious to know if the camera is taking multiple frames and blending them in camera. I also wonder what the results will be. It would be pretty cool if they could get the camera to expose for shadows, mid tones, and highlights, and then create a single frame from that. Sure would save a lot of time if the results were any good.

It will only be a matter of time before they use a feature like this to allow digital cameras to capture a DR that is double what can be captured now.

Thanks Joe, this is what I was looking for:

HDR Mode
The EOS 5D Mark III camera features a built-in HDR mode, merging three images at various exposure levels into a single image, in-camera, for stunning photographs of landscapes and architecture with enhanced tonal gradation beyond the range of the naked eye. The exposure levels in the camera’s HDR mode can be set to cover a range of up to ±3 stops, in a choice of five settings: Natural, Art Standard, Art Vivid, Art Bold and Art Embossed providing unique visual effects. Individual source images can be saved as separate files, and the HDR mode has an optional automatic alignment function that can be useful for hand-held shooting. The EOS 5D Mark III’s standard Auto Exposure Bracketing function has been upgraded to allow for up to seven exposures per sequence, and exposure compensation can now be set for up to +/- 5EV.


7 frame option now available in the 5D3....this was one of the main reasons I got the 1Ds2. I really like the 7 frame option.

As for the HDR mode, if I am reading it correctly, it sounds like like you can space the 3 frames 3 stops apart and the camera will combine them AND save them as separate images as well. That could be pretty cool......if it does a good job. It would be really nice to test drive one of these bad boys in a house for a day.
