Consider the power source (the camera), Canon had to make a compromise between wifi power/range and battery life. Yeah, sure Canon could make a stronger wifi signal, but then folks would complain about the batteries getting sucked down to nothing to quickly. Of the two, battery life probably is more important for most folks.

No different then today's cell phones (2-3 mile range), and the old bag phones (15+ mile range). The bag phones could power a stronger signal then what today's cell phones can giving it more range.

That is a great perspective, and I realized yesterday that my phone's wifi could be a part of the issue, so ordered a $10 case that extends the phone's wifi signal. My fingers are crossed that it does anything, I would be elated if I could get closer to the reported 100' range out of the 6D.

One rovelight and one YN560 pointed straight above camera to fill the foreground shadows.

This one was a particular pain in the ass today, mix of low/high ceilings, and a really bright skylight in the low ceilings right around the camera with direct mid-day sun bouncing all that brown from countertops everywhere.

any advice on the hot areas in the ceiling? I tried a lot of bounces and none seemed to get an even light across the ceiling, would a shoot through umbrella help?

Mask in an ambient frame to help take away the "flat" flashed look. I think you did a great job, those ceilings looks awful to deal with.

Client decided to stage this home so I photographed it a second time. The first time I shot the property it started raining and I wasn't able to capture it the way I wanted to. I didn't want to waste my second opportunity... This is about 10 frames.

It was a stone floor. Dark brown look to it. Really nice fixtures and furnishings. These properties are always a treat to shoot.

Good stuff here! Looks like there's quite a bit of lighting going on, how long did these take you to put together?

That first shot is definitely a tough spot to shoot from, as I'm sure the kitchen was darker than the window.

If you were looking to improve these even more, I would recommend replacing or blending the ceilings with an ambient exposure, they are very flash-y, and not quite evenly lit. Also in a few spots, the flash is giving a magenta cast, which could be cleaned up easily with a hue/saturation layer in PS.

Very nice! Did you light the exterior with your Rovelight? My mind was blown when I went from using a speedlight to an Alien Bee monobloc for lighting exteriors, such a big difference.

It's a drag that those baby trees aren't just a little bit older, it would really round out the woodsy feeling of this place.

I did, I'm really liking it! I only used 3 flash frames to light up the front of the house! This GIF gives a nice overview.
