Real Estate Photographers - Listen Up!

I love photography and I have read everything I can about photography over the years.  I recently purchased the book "The Digital Photography Book" by Scott Kelly on the proper use of Digital SLR cameras and in that book Kelly mentions the name of B&H Photo in New York.  Kelly goes on to say that he has shopped at a lot of photography stores but B&H Photo in New York is the crème de la crème when it comes to photography stores and he said he "Trusts" them which is a biggie for me.

Earlier this year I wrote a blog "The big camera that can't - Please help!"  and the response I received was amazing.   I received some awesome advice about using my Canon Rebel SLR camera that even Canon did not give me!  I mentioned I could not take quality interior photos which were always coming out too dark.

After reading the incredible comments AR members left me I experimented with my camera settings and am now taking some awesome interior photos.   One of the comments left said that one could buy a real cool wide angle lens that would really capture a huge portion of a room and even recommended the lens I should buy.

I decided to try B&H Photo and went to their site B&H Photo and I was blown away! They have over 170,000 products in their store!  They have everything related to cameras, videos, computers, Home Theatres, etc. you could ever imagine and at great competetive prices. No wonder Kelly stated one could spend all day in their store and never see it all!

I had some questions so I decided to call a representative at B&H.  Not only did I receive a live person right away but the rep was extremely helpful.  He immediately told me which lens he would recommend and which lenses to stay away from because of the "Fish Bowl" effect.  He was awesome!  I ended up buying a new wide angle lens from them and I had it delivered to my front door step within 5 business days.  I LOVE IT!

My next investment will be to purchase a tripod for my camera and I have already starting looking at my options on B&H Photo and they will be the company I do business with!
