Here are some pictures of a local college I was sent to shoot. I'm interested in getting some feedback on these images. These were mostly done with a Tamron 10-24mm, and also 24mm TS-E Mk1 with a 50D. Be as harsh as you like, I'm really passionate about getting to be great in this business.

too many to comment on. Pick a couple only and ask for feedback. No-one has the time to critique so many photos!
Having said that, the best in the set (IMHO) is 10. Has a slight creepy sense to it


cheers, Paul

QUOTED IMAGE

this one looks concave... other than that it all looks really clean and crisp... It feels a little strange to see so many images of a college without any students/faculty...

I am not a Real Estate nor Architectural shooter but the verticals on 2,3,4 make me dizzy and in almost all pics distortion is very noticeable. These are quick fixes in Photoshop. Aide from that I think lighting is pretty decent and the pics are not that bad.

The verticals are one thing I'm still working on mastering. I've just gotten this tilt/shift lens and now verticals being distorted bug me now more than ever. That being said, the client is a Contractor who is looking for flashy images with a lot of punch, and it's hard finding a balance between the two.

It's getting harder and harder to resist the temptation of going full frame with a 5D Mk2 or at least Mk1. Not real excited about having to get new lenses though. What do architectural FF shooters usually use to get to the equivalent of my 10-24mm?

I think you can still manage great shots with what you have. I suppose you just have to master the TS.

Some of your images are really nice, and some bland - but I find that is more to do with subject more than your style. I have to say the colours of the medical rooms make me feel sick...It reminds me of the Dentist, maybe its got something to do with that.

Anyway, I think you're definately on the right track because I (as an amateur), would be impressed with that set.

Watch your verticals, that's the biggest thing that stood out to me. I'd also consider HDR or flash to even out the shadows and highlights, make the scenes brighter, and add some contrast. We have an architectural/interior thread going over in Urban Life and Travel with lots of good info on this stuff:

Mike is spot on his comments. Correct verticals in Photoshop (no need for the expensive TS lens..sure those are better images but to get started photoshop should be able to fix those issues: Have you used: FILTER > DISTORT > LENS CORRECTION) and use HDR to balance lighting (although like I said before your lighting is pretty decent already, HDR would help out an extra bit). HDR is huge in Real Estate photography.

I don't mind wide-angle distortion, but verticals in the center of the frame should generally be vertical.
