Hi, Margaret asked me to post some additional details on what we are doing with our high resolution imagery.  As you may know, we shoot with a Canon 5d, II, with a shift lens; that means we take photos with about 40 million pixels.  We've wanted to showcase our images on the Internet for a long t...

We have been taking pole photos for years. We decided to use painter's poles because they were readily available, came in many styles, and cheap.

I keep getting spammed from BuyersUSA.com (aka buyersusarelocation.com ).  They won't turn off the emails, and I think they hijacked the email from our MLS.  Years ago we had an account with them, and there is NO WAY that I would EVER have an account with them again.  But, there is no justificati...

The NAR meeting will be held in San Diego this year in November (Nov 11-16).  Would you have an interest in getting together to talk about photography topics like High Dynamic Range photography, pole photography, etc.?

Well, I've been photographing our next listing, and here are two images that I've assembled.  The first one is an HDR image using Photomatix.  As best as I have tried to tweak that tool, I cannot seem to raise the level of the ceiling...it's just grey.  These particular images were even photograp...
