  1. Good post Michael Rags
  2. Keith this is a hellava idea Soon I have to shot hotel rooms and this interior panorama stitch sounds like it might work thanks for the tip Rags
  3. I agree... As a RE Broker for 40 yrs; Owners never wanted to pay for promos in my experience Realtors don't get a salary so why should they put out dollars to put lipstick on a pig; For a "potential" commission on an overpriced listing... (it's complicated...) Just take the best shots you can, because that's your resume.... Rags
  4. Sounds good... You might like to adopt the thinking I had ..."beneficial vignettes" Rags
  5. Hi Dallas... I've been a RE broker since 1968 and had a company handling high end residences. I've had RE photographers take the property shots (not me) They used tripods for the interior shots (longer exposures - poor lighting) Sometimes they would leave & come back when the light was more to their liking I was not interested in what they were doing or equipment... just the results... Allow me a few comments about the shots above... I see too much lens distortion 2 & 3 (3 is passable)... maybe a longer lens & step back if you can Remember you are not taking inventory pictures... you're not there to show everything.. but just the best look possible (may mean excluding things) The new buyers will throw out the shitty furniture not pictured... Good luck in your new endeavor Rags
  6. Ah... ha...(they're called storm drains here)
  7. Hey Mike Re: ceramic sewerage lines. When installed they didn't rust like iron but they leaked at the joints That was considered good because it reduced the volume into the sewer system Problem is; tree roots seek water and especially water with poop... and they break the ceramic... So it is.... Rags
  8. Beautiful moment caught... Nice work Rags
  9. Interesting Michael... Re: focusing shake... You might like to try a foam finger Locate gloves with foam liners cut two fingers off, turn inside out & put on you focus fingers The friction from the foam will turn the lens instead of compression bond, thereby isolating shake The fingers have a duel purpose; they can also be used as a drivers aide when someone cuts you off Rags
  10. Great shots and interesting story Rags
  11. Hehe... I owned a bagel shop (House of Bagels) and this brought back memories... Nice shot well taken Rags
  12. Great story Uppa Walton... The images are crisp and the facial tones just right Thanks for posting Rags
  13. One of a dozen pieces for a hotel (which is close to completion) Rags
  14. Is there a reason it's so tilted...? Rags
  15. Very nice set of images; my favorite is the closeup portrait of the smiling young girl Rags
