    I don't know about you, but I generally want my verticals to be vertical as well.

    I've seen quite a few real estate/architectural images taken at sunset - with the lights on. I know it seems to be preferred. As for verticals, I know that, too, and using a tripod is a necessity especially when taking multiple images for bracketing. It does seem to be a lot of work, but since I haven't yet delved into it, I'm still interested in learning more about the process.

    It only impacts JPEGs, as is the case with most of the stuff in there.
    Thank you. I will have to look again - went through so many menus yesterday without seeing it. Do you have it enabled for jpegs (even though I know you don't tend to shoot jpegs).

    I have everything turned off because I don't shoot jpeg, at least not with the D500s, and all it does is slow the camera down since it will still apply it to the preview image. Not really an issue with the D500 but I've watched it slow down the D610 and D750. Nothing significant, but unnecessary.

    Thinking it through, I'm guessing it's better to leave it turned off. That way I'll know for sure whether my verticals are straight for my RAW images. I hadn't even considered that. And certainly didn't realize it would slow down shooting. Thanks for your input, Jake.

    It's not significant in the slowdown, but I suspect if you turned everything on and then everything off you can see differences in green light time.

    Who does Real Estate photography?
    I went out with this lens again today. This made me chuckle.

    However, taking exterior building shots might be challenging. I didn't use a tripod today so wound up aiming upwards to photograph a few buildings. Granted that can be corrected in post, but I'd need a step stool and a really tall tripod if I wanted to capture the verticals as straight in camera.

    I took a few building photos, but my scratch disc is full. Wound up having trouble just editing this one image. Oops! Gotta backup a lot of things to free up space.

    Sometimes you will see that they spray down all of the concrete with water too.

    They are doing walk-through images and videos with music that starts with a drone view of the area now. They also have images of the entire inside of the house without the ceiling. I don't know how they do that other than they have to stitch together images some kind of way.

    I would love to do real estate photography, but looking at the equipment and video requirements makes me think that I would be out of my league and too broke to get into it. Although, sometimes I think I could make some extra cash doing retakes of some of the places that look like the owner took the images. You know, backlit and with towels handing on the shower door.

    I'm in a couple of Facebook Real Estate groups where people have mentioned taking drone footage. That's definitely out of my league. Plus I always thought real estate photography was done with HDR, but some people prefer to merge flash photos with ambient lit photos and call them flambient. The more I learn, the more daunting it seems to become. So I dunno about pursuing this....

    Agreed.
    I don't know which real estate agents or companies are doing this type of thing. Seems like an entire new specialty within photography and videography. Never heard of 'flambient'. Sounds interesting.

    That and window pulls - where they adjust the exposure of windows to show the scene outside rather than to overexpose the windows. The process is quite different than I expected.
