Tim Salix does not prescribe to the default option of utilising an ultra-wide-angle lens to create the ‘real estate look’ of falsely transforming a room into an oversized figment of itself. As a consequence, he avoids the associated distortion issues of objects in the foreground looking elongated and anything in the background becoming tiny. Tim will only use an ultra-wide-angle lens for large open spaces.
When deemed necessary, he will bring studio lights on-site. This is important not only for gloomy interiors, but also when there is a view to photograph. It is necessary to balance the lighting of the interior to that of the brightness of the outdoors, to avoid the latter getting over-exposed and looking blown out.
