Video & Movie / Wedding Video! 5D mkIII, 7D, and 2x 60D
« on: September 11, 2012, 01:15:48 PM »
I had very little gear with me compared to normal. Most of my lenses were rented out and my partner was using the 5D mkIII with 24-70 and 70-200 for the photos. This left me with the 7D and 2x 60Ds. The 60Ds had each a 18-55 kit lens on them for ceremony. The 7D had tokina 11-16 on it for ceremony. for the rest of the night I switched between my nifty 50mm 1.8, the tokina 11-16, and 70-200 since my partner was no longer using it. I had a dinky home made slider so about 10% of the shots from it were usable due to a wobble it has once you get going. Also, I had no glidecam with me to I did the usual "glide cam" shots handheld. Again, this is not at all my ideal setup and the majority of my gear was all rented out for the weekend.

Check it out!

thanks for replying
i suppose 24-70 was stuck to f/2.8 as far as i can tell from the shallow depth of field.

really nice work, well done again !

Yeah. There was a good number that were at 2.8. But I usually shoot f/4-5.6. Getting ready rooms were really dark

Thank you!

nice work,
which lens did you use the most?
i'd see you've got some diamonds below in your signature :)

My 24L and 85L were rented out this past weekend so I didn't have them with me. The 24-70mm was mounted on the 5D mkIII most of the time. The other 5D shots were mounted with Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 OS. There were a few shots on the 7D with 24-105L, 70-200L non-is, and Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8.

Mostly 5D mkIII with 24-70L

Oh those are really neat.  You did a great job.  You get a star for buying the 5D Mark III and another for doing such a great job.  You have a long career ahead of you.

Thank you very much. I appreciate those words. It always nice to have compliments to keep you going! =D

Nice work... I used to do a lot of real estate work until the market bottomed out a few years ago and most my realtors have stopped using me because they cant afford me, or they have taken up jobs elsewhere...<snip>
Just curious....what kind of money do ya'll try to charge real estate companies for this type of photograpy?

What was the going rate before the 'bottom feel out'?  Just curious....

Thanks in advance,

cayenne

For my stuff I charge $200 for day shots and $300 for evening shots

Thank you....and for those numbers...about how many images do they get?

Again,thank you for the info....

C

20-30 usually for me

here is a real estate shot i took with my 5D III & the 24L f1.4


Remodeled APT by CastilloPhotoDesign, on Flickr

That looks really nice. A good lens/body combo although I prefer wider shots myself. good work =-)

I agree, I wider shot would have been nice. but there is so much distortion with the 16-35 that i prefer using the 24L when i can. I use the 16-35 only when the 24 is not enough! This is a test shot, I'm shooting the final version tomorrow. I'll make sure to post it when is done. If you guys have any feedback to improve the shot let me know, ill definitely keep them in mind for my final image

Look forward to seeing them! The 16-35 distortion could definitely be helped lightroom or camera raw so i think i'd recommend that. Just my opinion. I shoot with 5d mmiii and 14mm bower.

Not bad for your first keep up the good work.

Wow these are amazing!

Thank you!


These are much much better than the last ones what did you change in your processing? These are much cleaner and more subtle but still have some nice punch
Possibly the first one could do with a tweak to the black point to restore some contrast back to the shadows though


Before I was using Photomatix. With these I used the LR/Enfuse in Lightroom 4 to generate a very flat image out of my 5 exposures. Then saved a tiff and edited in the contrast and saturation and everything. I agree it is WAY better and cleaner than what i was doing before in photomatix. Also, i was able to use the same settings for every shots in the enfuse plugin which helped speed the whole process up as well. And...... the Enfuse plugin is donation based with a minimum donation of around $3.50 through paypal which I was very happy to pay for and would recommend to everyone after seeing the outcome of the plugin. I agree with you on the first shot. I've been trying to figure out what it is. Something felt wrong about it and now that you say that I totally see it lacking in the shadows as far as contrast is concerned.


Very nice.
The Samyang 14mm has some pretty bad barrel distortion, but these shots don't. Did you de-barrel them in post? Which program?

I did absolutely no "lens correction" in post. =-) I know what your talking about and i have actually been very happy with this lens for my real estate shooting. I'd rather have a 17mm T/S so i could have more control over my verticals, but I just don't have the budget for it right now.
