Commercial & Real estate

There are 4 general tools that I use to capture compelling and natural looking interior shots of real estate and commercial properties.

  1. A high dynamic range full frame camera.
  2. A low distortion wide angle zoom lens
  3. Extra lighting gear to supplement the existing ambient and allow for a realistic window view with natural colors.
  4. A rock solid tripod with a fine adjustment geared head to ensure that the camera is meticulously aligned.

In addition there are a few special tools that I use for exterior shots.

  1. Tilt - Shift lenses to correct perspective when shooting exteriors on steep hills.
  2. Long telephoto lenses to grab waterfront views from across the water.

Here is the detailed list of what I'm currently using for my commercial work.
