A professional photographer has the tools and knowledge to implement more advanced editing like targeted adjustments. Notice how the back bedroom has richer colours in the second photo? These are the little extras I do for my client all the time:)
So I wanted to show the difference it can make when using a professional photographer for Real Estate Photography. By simply removing the sofa in the foreground, the harsh shadow line is eliminated and the space is opened up.

Two local media services providers are joining forces to bring the Sarnia Real Estate and Commercial Aerial Marketing industries to new heights. InSkyPhoto and Dean Holtz Photography will be working together exclusively to help local agents and business owners realize the potential in showing their listings and businesses using the latest technology in aerial imaging. David Cooke ( owner of InSkyPhoto ) is an ex-military pilot and combat flying instructor with over 25 years in aviation. Along with a standing SFOC ( annual drone pilot authorization ) from Transport Canada, he holds a current Canadian Commercial pilot's license including multi-engine and turbine, fixed and rotary-wing endorsements. As a low level helicopter pilot in the RCAF, he has over 3000hrs "nap-of-the-earth" experience flying recce helicopters in Canada, US and NATO. After retirement it was a natural transition to become a drone pilot. His professional experience operating in commercial airspace, understanding of Transport Canada protocols, flying skills with drone technology ( including custom building his own ), makes him one of the most qualified drone pilots in the area.
Dean Holtz has been a media service provider in the area for over 10 years, with professional experience in photography/videography and editing in industries such as weddings, portraits, product and events. Initially he started with weddings and portraits, but soon noticed a need for quality Real Estate media when he and his wife were selling their home nine years ago. As result of his developed proprietary editing platform and his focus on customer service, Dean Holtz Photography virtually "jump started" the Real Estate Photography industry in Sarnia. With having photographed/filmed over 600 homes and having worked with over 50 agents, Dean Holtz is arguably the most experienced Real Estate media service provider in the Sarnia/Lambton community. Dean noticed the opportunity 4 years ago for drone video to be added as a service to his list of services for Real Estate marketing and proceeded to become a pilot and while he provided this service to several agents for several homes, Dean also noticed the increased requirements by Transport Canada and felt that working with a more experienced and established pilot would allow him to focus on providing the highest level of service to agents and business owners. Likewise, with David wanting to focus on piloting ( especially in the areas of surveillance, inspection and surveying ), he saw the need to allow a more seasoned creative director and production editor handle that end of the media process. With these two forces aligned, Real Estate and Commercial Aerial Imagery in the Sarnia/Lambton area will continue to see the bar raised, with clients and consumers continually reaping the benefits.

My daughter Ainsleigh celebrated her 10th birthday yesterday and what she wanted most was a new camera. So, being the photographer that I am, I was more than happy to select a new camera for her. We bought her a very inexpensive point and shoot 2 years ago and it recently "bit the biscuit". So I visited my local shop, looked online, researched many reviews and narrowed my selection down to two cameras. The Panasonic DMC-FX48 and the Nikon Coolpix S640. My main criteria were durability, ease of use and of course image quality. I personally prefer quality over bells and whistles, and while some of the other manufacturers competitive products ( Sony, Canon, Fuji, Pentax, etc. ), had more features, these two stood out from the crowd. Their price was the same ( $280 Canadian ), but the Panasonic was discounted $170! Both had good menu navigation, ergonomics, macro ability, rechargeable batteries, exposure compensation, flash control, 5x zoom, video with sound, in camera image touch up, optical image stabilization and face/scene recognition. They both were about the same size and weight ( good for my daughter's small hands ) and had metal bodies. The Nikon boasts a 2 year warranty, faster focus ( about the same as the Nikon D40 ), faster zoom, and a higher ISO ability ( up to 6400 ). The Panasonic on the other hand boasts HD video ( 720p ), slightly better menu navigation, and a wider angle view ( 25mm versus 28mm on the Nikon ). So I brought my laptop to Carman's Foto Source and conducted my own tests.
The performance was about equal when it came to normal lighting conditions with and without the flash, but the speed of the Nikon was noticeable. However, when using the macro mode, the Panasonic has two options. One where you shoot at the wide angle, which doesn't get you as close as the Nikon, and another mode, which uses the telephoto end, which got you much closer than the Nikon, but with significant image quality loss. The Nikon clearly won this test.
The other test I performed was the high ISO test. Because we weren't investing in a DSLR for her yet ( too large, heavy and complex use ), we wanted a good little point and shoot that she could be creative with and start learning the basics of photography. Neither camera allows for control of shutter speed or aperture, but both allow control over the ISO's. Shots from 100 ISO - 400 ISO showed similar good performance. However, once the Panasonic went to 800 ISO, significant noise was visible, while the Nikon remained clean. In the end, the Nikon could produce as clean an image at 3200 ISO as the Panasonic did at 800 ISO. However, the images at 6400 ISO on the Nikon were terrible. Way too much noise and colour saturation loss. But to have a point and shoot capable of 3200 ISO is impressive. I chose the Nikon ( my Nikon nerd heart was warmed ), because the HD video and the slightly wider view of the Panasonic didn't make up for the speed and IQ of the Nikon. My daughter loves her new camera and I hope this quick little review is helpful to anyone looking at these ( or other like products ). Even though, technically they aren't in the same category ( because of the Panasonic's original price ), I felt it perfectly legitimate to compare them. I get annoyed when review sites only review price comparable models, because that's not how consumers always shop.
