I will tell them that if they let me in the gate (This was from the road) I will take front, sides and rear and if the main floor is concrete slab I might walk on that but I will not go upstairs.

I saw them start building this. I know there's an exterior foundation wall but I'm unsure if they filled it in with concrete or just covered the flooring with plywood like they normally do around here.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

Thanks for the kind words!

They are well deserved Tyler!

Magic Lantern should let you do 9 frames in AEB.

This intrigues me, and I can't believe I haven't known about it before. Currently I use a 50d and bracket 6 frames, 3 at a time. Man, would it be nice not to have to move the wheel! What do you know about ML Tyler? Anyone completely have their camera jacked up? I can't afford to screw mine up as it's the only body I have right now.

I like the overall lighting and the single point perspective is just fine, I use it all the time and my clients love it. But, with this room, there appears to be french doors to the right, I would have shifted over to the right a tad to show more of that wall and less of the left side. Single point perspective is very powerful when shooting interiors, when it works. There are some rooms that won't work, and there are some that do, you just have to play around with it.

To the right of the french doors was a big extrusion in the wall, presumably some sort of space for hvac vents. What I really wanted to do was move left and shoot into the dining room, leaving out the TV, since it had lots of space and more windows. Would have really opened up the whole shot. But I was specifically there to shoot the living room,and the dining room itself was a mess. I'll be back in the spring when the whole place is done, though, so ... I'll get to do it just right. :)

I agree with the comment about clutter, it does seem a bit busy in the image. I have run into rooms like this and I found out the stager did it that way, so I shoot it because I've had my butt chewed by enough stagers already that it's not worth the fight. Some of them are quite the Prima Donna.

Unfortunately what everyone is calling clutter is the interior decoration/design I was there to shoot. :oops: In some ways I see its perception as clutter to be a failure on my part to capture the room; or it is what it is -- it was indeed a very busy space. Lots of stuff, that I had no liberty to move or change.

In any case, thanks for the feedback. I really enjoyed doing this ... was a nice change of pace from the run 'n gun stuff I usually do.

That is when the flash frame comes into play, throw the flash frame in with the blend and it seems to help a lot.

I'm with you. Just been too lazy to mess with it. :o

It does, I just don't want to take even more time blending more images for what I charge (you know what I mean ;) ). I have been meaning to play with more and mess around with the other HDR tools I have but just haven't gotten around to it. I plan to do more on better-paying jobs.

I had it on my 50D and it never caused any problems.

I've used it on my 50d with no ill effects. Also hard to find anyone who has. It's really a great tool.

This house was the facade used in the Nightmare on Elm Street movies. The interior was modern, go figure.

Mate... nice balance exposure with the interior and outside. If you don't mind me ask some questions?

Did you flash inside or a tripod with long exposure? and then shoot the outdoor scene with a separate exposure and combine them? or HDR?

sorry but i need to shoot a house with a good scenery outdoor too in a couple of weeks.]]

I have a little bit of a dilemma here. I was asked by a bank to photograph this house about 3 hours ago. I know of the house. I know it's condition. It's been sitting half completed for about 10 years. No windows, doors, nothing. Just exterior walls and a finished roof. My belief is that since the roof is finished then the inside should be structurally sound. Then I think of the storms we've had and are the supports inside this house going to hold it up much longer?

While I'd love the opportunity to go inside and take photos of the interior of this monstrosity, my only concern is will it be safe to do so?

You should pop by this thread.. https://photography-on-the.net …42895&highlight​=Abandoned

We go in far worse condition buildings :)

Lately, my business has been kinda dead. Slowed up around Thanksgiving and died during December--very normal I know--but it hasn't gotten going again yet. I live in FL where we don't have an offseason for real estate so it shouldn't be this slow going into March.

I had been wondering what it was. I know I had slowed my marketing down over the holidays--for obvious reasons--so I had thought it was that going into January. However, it hasn't picked up during February and now into March.

I have been speaking with some realtors whom I've actually become very friendly with. They kept saying their properties were selling before they got them listed. I know this happens but didn't really think it was happening that much. Then, I was shooting a house last week for a realtor I've done some business with. She was talking with the seller--whom she's been looking for a house for--she was telling him the inventory left in the areas he wants to buy in. Basically, there is hardly any.

She had another property for me to shoot this week. When I called to get the info on the property so I could enter it into the ordering system, she told me the house is already under contract and the one I shot last week was already as well (she didn't even get the photos/floor plan posted yet)! This also happened to a property I shot a couple of weeks ago where the property was under contract the day after I shot/measured the property.

I've been hearing this from more and more realtors. The problem is, it's killing my business right now. There's not much need for them to use my services if the properties are selling so quickly especially when they're selling before the property hits the MLS.

Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this and what you might be doing to deal with it. I'm kinda at a loss on this one. I've got a bunch of realtors who were starting to use me more regularly (been working hard to build the business over the last year) and now, they want to use me but don't need to.

It's quite the dilemma...

I think this was directed at me, I work on a tripod with longer exposure for the foreground and layer mask a second exposure for the sky. Hope this helps, good luck with your shoot, let me know if you have any other Q's
