Real Estate - refining techniques

2 months 4 days ago #674822 by SelSol
I shoot real estate for several clients here in Cambridge and I’m trying to up my game a little.

been shooting for a while using a 7D and Sigmas 10-20 F4-5.6

Ive just added a bestview R7 field monitor for ease and to enable better framing and stop silly items being left in the shot.

Im looking for any advice people may be able to give and critique the attached images, equipment, methodology - in fact anything greatfully received!

thanks in advance :)

Pay attention to
  • keystoning and barrel effect.
  • WB in shady areas
  • was the home off the grid? If not, turn on the lights.
  • the bus and cushions are in the shot, use them to better impact
  • windows give light but also some detail from outside, balance them
force a paragraph between the images.…my 2 cents. Have a good time!

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Out of interest why would you put the lights on? I have always used natural lighting to avoid having blown details and unwanted light patterns on the walls and ceiling. Thanks for the input

Natural light is a good option
but large wall/ceiling areas without
gradient colour/details?

Of course, it is always your decision.
