Lovely video - very well executed

Yes, I too have looked into the RE side of shooting both video and stills, and boy... most real estate agents are just flat out CHEAP...  Seems to me, if you can get in good with very high-end agents, who deal exclusively in very swanky properties, you might be able to make a go of it.  Otherwise you'll find yourself competing against bargain basement shooters practically giving away their time, or trying to sell your higher-end services to agents who just don't see the value in it.  "My listings have been selling just fine with these crappy shots I take on my camera from Target"

It's too bad, really... because great pictures (and great video) could really help convince a buyer that THAT is the house of their dreams

Good points. And thank you =-) I've been very lucky. I've worked only with two guys who are closely related in the RE world and neither one has been cheap about the photography and video cost. It's nice to be working with guys that understand the value of tho work.

I would go

24mm f/1.4 II
50mm f/1.2
70-200 f/2.8 IS II - 4 stops of IS help a lot in the dark.

Not to pry, but I will - did it pay enough for it to be worth your time and a good project?  I've always been a little worried to get involved with real estate agents - seems like they would never pay well and be difficult.

I've come across this recently as well. A client has asked me to do a community video and I refuse to sell myself short. I was told realtors can't afford that price but he's adamant on wanting me to do it. Unfortunately it's not a two way street for his expected budget.

This is easy to run into.. I've found it pretty easy to work around by only approaching real estate guys that don't seem quite as cheap.

I really do like the idea of getting a TSE for RE. I just don't have the income from RE yet to justify the lens. At the moment its the only place i'd be using it. I'd probably get the 17mm

It would have been worth it if i was a bit more efficient with my time for the day. Also i had to work around a couple things since the 5d mkiii raw ins't supported on my version on photomatics and the 7.1 camera update hadn't come out for photoshop. now the editing would be much quicker. Made $300 for photography and $300 for video.

The easiest way to keep your verticals straight is to keep your camera level.  I use tilt shifts (TS-E 17, TS-E 24 II, and TS-E 90) in order to then frame appropriately.
Thanks!

thank you! I've done that with the windows before and this was just a super quick turn around job video and photo so i decided not too. But what do you do to keep your vertical straight? i want to get up higher then tilt down to see over things but of course then the verticals are off. do you use t/s lenses? Nice shots btw

And i used PP cs6 just to experiment with it and see how the new one compares to fcp 7/x. Used Magic Bullet Looks for grading

$800-1000 lighting budget. I was thinking of picking up a lowel pro 3 light kit from bh.

4000 for mounting heavier cameras when needed. Just more versatile. Thanks

Used the Konova Slider and Glidecam HD4000. And yeah we were pretty limited with lighting. We and a z96 and a small Canon video light tungsten. Any lighting suggestions? we are looking into light kits right now.

It also of course affects the brightness of the image. Faster being darker, slower being brighter.

EOS Bodies / Re: Mirror-less and EF Lenses
« on: April 30, 2012, 07:32:59 PM »
EF, EFs, and pancakes would fit onto the mirror-less with the adaptor for EF and EFs. but pancakes would not fit onto EF/EFs d-slr bodies. Much like EFs not working on on FF bodies. or like micro 4/3 not adapting to EF Bodies. but EF Lenses can adapt to 4/3 bodies
