    • Comic relief?

      She’s obsessed with that lighting bag. Everytime it comes out she has to poke her nose in it. I wonder if she smells you on it…?

  2. Good Video
    Take it your not balancing your new slider on the a silks video stand at either end?

  4. Malia – Great video thanks…matches for candles is nice touch…biz cards & post cards is great idea too. Im always looking for them on shoots.

    • I know of someone who keeps plastic fruit, baskets, lightbulbs, fake flower arrangements and various other props in her car for “just in case” staging emergencies on shoots. I often think about doing that (I have a big enough trunk) but never think to actually do it. lol

  5. Could add the iPhone app that you use?

    Do you find the 17-40mm on the 5dmark2 when shooting video causes distortion or do compensate by not shooting video at 17mm? I realize this question is outside of the gear topic? But I have been watching your videos after I got turned on to PFRE and Scott Hargis’s incredible book and I have been inspired by your videos to more incorporate HDV in to my listings ( and my photography ( Thanks for posting what’s in your bag.

    • For real estate I don’t really use any iPhone apps. I have iHandy Level which I break out occasionally when I’m shooting video but that’s about it.

      Yes, the 17-40 creates a huge amount of distortion if you’re shooting too wide. I try to hang out around 28 mm when shooting video and NEVER go wider than 24 mm.

  6. Thanks for the lens help.

    In your gear video you mention an iPhone lightmeter app. That’s the app I was hoping to learn more about. Sorry I wasn’t clear. My kids were fighting and I didn’t have time to proofread. Toddlers. What an age!

    Best Regards

  7. Hello Malia – great video. Your work is AMAZING! I have been a long time fan from the flickr group but have not posted anything there for some time. Anyhow. I too have been getting into video and you are my biggest inspiration so far for real estate. Would love to see a second video or even some tutorials on your video techniques.

    • Hi Patrick – thanks for the note! I’ve thought about trying to do a video tutorial but the problem is that I don’t really know any other videographers who would be willing to shoot me! :) One of these days I’ll set up a camera in the corner while I shoot and maybe do a voice over to explain my process. That said, video production is 99% behind the computer!
