Add one of These to your Camera Bag Next Time You Do a Photo Shoot at a Listing

Eric gives us a few great examples of using a Fisheye lens.  I personally am using the Canon 10-22 lens and I do not own a fisheye but this post shows the power of utilizing a wide angle lens.

I wrote about this technique recently in "Using Fisheye Lenses in Real Estate Photography".  If you haven't tried using a fisheye lens when you photograph your listings, prepare to be impressed.

You'll need one of these:

Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens

I happen to like Canon products, but there are certainly other fisheye lenses out there.  Ken Rockwell describes this lens as "far sharper" than any Nikon fisheye lens.

You'll also need DxO Optics Pro software.  Optics Pro 7.0 is the latest incarnation of this astounding image rectification software.  I don't know why more real estate photographers don't use DxO, but I see more and more folks experimenting with it.

DxO Optics Pro automatically corrects optical flaws in an image.  It corrects lens distortion (making it perfect for working with fisheye images), removes noise and makes other beneficial adustments to your raw photos.  DxO Optics Pro software is remarkably intuitive when it makes choices about what needs correcting in your photos.

Fisheye lenses are perfect for certain photography tasks.  Let's say you want to highlight a tight space, like this roll-in shower lined with Italian marble tiles:

You need to go ultra-wide to get a shot like this.  With a fisheye lens, you pull in a super wide field which you can then crop to produce the results you need.

Try a fisheye lens to get great detail shots of bedrooms, bathrooms and hallways.

351 Old Fort Road, La Pointe WI 54850 - Listed by Madeline Island Realty

These fisheye images (processed using DxO image rectification software) make bedrooms look expansive and luxurious.  Here's another example:

Use fisheye lens shots to pull together a wide field into a single frame.
