Advice for shooting House Interior with 5DIII
« on: February 01, 2013, 04:06:46 AM »
I have been asked by my son to shoot the interior of a house he has renovated. The photos will go on a web site and in a brochure book he has printed and sends to prospective clients.

I have a 5D III with a 24-105 & 70-200 2.8 II and a 430EX.

On my last shoot I was having difficulty fitting the rooms in the shot so I may have to hire something wider this time.
Any advice appreciated.

Michael

Why not first try shooting a panorama and stitch the photos with Microsoft ICE?

Ice stitches good. No hassle. Make sure you have at least 20% overlap...

If you have a nice exterior view:

The night before: turn on the lights that will best show off the interior & measure the light.
Take a few shots on a tripod to make sure you capture the interior scene.

Morning/Evening next day: (whichever best shows off the exterior view) Set the tripod in the same position, turn on the same interior lights and use the camera settings from the night shoot. Take a photograph every 10-15 minutes. Eventually outside light will match interior light and you get a photograph with beautiful interior and exterior.

For tight interior work, TS-E 17mm wins.

+1 on the TS-E 17.  That is what I use for most of my RE interiors.  For exteriors the TS-E 24 II is king (the TS-E 17 is usually too wide).  If you're a bit worried about tilt shifts, the 16-35/2.8 II is a decent lens and is what I used before tilt shifts.  In all cases make sure to have your camera level on the tripod to get the verticals right.  Missed verticals are the #1 mistake by beginners.
