    Guy - great images! Keep em coming. Looks like some of the homes in the Sdaalebrooke area of Tucson

    It also seems that no matter the cost of the home we still have the same sky

    Re: Shooting Interiors with MF

    Thanks for the response, Guy. Very interesting idea that close-up objects in the corners might look softest. Something that in most cases could be planned around.

    That is kind of what I was thinking about also

    Guy, the shots are very nice. Just seems that if you were going to use an element in the frame where almost everything else is in sharp focus, you would also want that frame element to also be in sharp focus to complete the image. Your other shots carry that nicely, but a few where you have an object much closer, and out of the DOF close range, it tends to look distracting. It is very hard to get everything within the operating DOF range sharp when there is so much distance to cover, even with a fairly wide angle lens and stopping down. Not a criticism, so much as a compositional comment of sorts. I like what you are getting, but for those shots where the close corners are too close and are not in focus, it would seem better to crop them out at time of composition or in post.

    Re: Shooting Interiors with MF

    possibly a curved field of focus

    a bit reminiscent of an article i read using fast/widish lenses by portrait photogs
    this guy (oops!) actually got the model to pose within the complex curved field of focus, so that the obvious detail of the frame was in focus, all else was bokeh. But i suspect his focus field curved the other way.

    not sure how to conduct such a test but you could shoot at a wider aperture and try to get a feel for the limits. Maybe even some brick wall shots. Alternately, you would get use to it in time i guess

    that shot of the fountain really pushes the detail doesnt it
    i guess it doesnt have an AA filter, would that be right ?
    yet it doesnt present those speckled highlights we see with M8

    Guy,
    Nice job on this.

    Do not hate me, but two nits you missed...

    There is still a wall plate on the back wall near the edge of the doorway on the far right side. Might be tough to remove without affecting the martini glass.

    The other is actually the reflection on the countertop from the wall plate you retouched at the very bottom right. I know, a terrible nit to pick, but details, details....;-)

    Heck, having those wall plates right handy at the bar for the blender and espresso machine were one of the main selling points for me!

    Guy,
    Liking those last rounds of outdoor shots across the pool. Nice place and nice setting. Combined with the dusk shots, it really makes the place look attractive.

    On the wedding thing......just jack the price up to a point where it drives folks to not bother you, and if they do want to pay that price, you will gladly do it, taking the money and putting it to more fun use ;-) (Charge something like $75-100K for the wedding. If anybody agrees, you can still hire several folks to help you shoot stuff, and come out way, way ahead so you only need to do one or two to get deep into the black while only sacrificing a few days of your time, thus not interrupting your other pursuits. The chances are there will be few takers, so you still get to pursue the things you want, but are offering the shooting option to your wife's interest. Sneaky?....sure, but it let's you control the things you like doing.)

    Wonderful shots! I specially like the outdoor fill lighting and balancing of interior-exterior light. I really, really need to consider the 28.

    $3.50 plastic beige wall plates in a $1.6M house?
