Shooting interiors with an old Nikon 35mm architectural lens on a modern Canon digital SLR body!

Most interior and real estate photography is shot with ultra-wide 17 - 24mm lenses. At the widest focal length, perspective distortion occurs. It’s when the elements on a lens are so curved that it distorts room sizes and pinches the center, so you get this  > <  instead of this  | |

I use Canon’s 24mm TSE-II and 17mm TS-E II as my two go-to lenses for interiors. I switched to Canon in just for these two superior architectural-grade lenses and I have been shooting Nikon since 1977. These are Canon’s highest quality, all-manual glass and steel architectural and interiors lenses. They are remarkably sharp all the way to the edges with no lens distortion or no chromatic aberration.

The lens body “shifts” up or down to accommodate for architectural work. Shift up for tall buildings, shift down for smaller interior rooms. I shift down a few degrees in most rooms to remove part of the ceiling and
show more of the content near the floor. This way, you compose at eye level and see the furnishings.

24mm is arguably the perfect focal length for most medium to large interiors but you have to use 17mm for most standard rooms to show it all.

That said, when conditions are right, I’ll use my old 80’s Nikkor 35mm PC Shift-only architectural lens.. on a Canon camera body! All you need is a $50 adapter. This amazing Nikkor lens is steel and glass, small and all-manual. It’s also a compact 52mm filter size. I can put this amazing little lens in my pocket!

Here’s a few images shot with this terrific old school lens.

The Estate Selfie

Couldn’t resist a selfie in this grand Winchester manor dining room, full of 18th century furnishings! The room shot so well I figured why not add me at the wine room lol. Great light in here.

Great Reviews on Redfin!

My portfolio shows a lot of fine homes but I also shoot loads of Standard and Mid-Range residences and work with everyone. I shot hundreds of homes for Redfin for almost five years. Sometimes their customers fill out reviews. Mine are here.

I now accept Bitcoin for Real Estate & Commercial Photography

In the 21st century world of finance, there’s nothing bigger right now than #bitcoin and cryptocurrency. Bitcoin’s blockchain network and the math behind it are the real value. It’s so much of a cultural paradigm shift there is daily coverage on nearly every major media outlet including CNBC, BloombergTV, The Wall St Journal, The New York Times and many others. Governments, investors, traders, brokerages, hedge funds, universities and countless others worldwide are on it like white on snow. 

Bitcoin’s spectacular math solves two centuries-old problems: Triple Entry Accounting and the Byzantine Generals Problem. Bitcoin and blockchain technology is as exciting as the internet was in 1995 all over again.  It’s like discovering a new color.

The internet has of course disrupted every traditional industry from publishing and distribution channels to everyday communication, advertising, telephony, broadcasting, the music, television, film and entertainment industries, movie rentals & distribution, education, books, newspapers, magazines, politics, news, mail, shopping, dating, travel, taxis and ride sharing, hotel and travel lodging and now, money.

Bitcoin has the potential to disrupt money itself. There’s nothing bigger than money.

If you’re new to bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, here’s an excellent introductory classroom-style presentation from MIT mathematician James D’Angelo. Be sure and check out all of his Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series as he also covers security, blockchain, wallets, pricing, the math and loads more. Additional bitcoin resources below.
