I need some help. I take photos of homes for sale. I recently purchased a Tokina 11-16 (was using a Tamron 10-24 but it wasn't mine and it was soft around the edges). I've noticed a distinct issue with bright windows and/or rooms with high contrast. I am not happy at all with the photos. The photo below is straight out of the d5100. Today I am shooting with my d90, and see similar issues, though haven't been in a real dark home to really test it out.
What could be wrong? Settings? Even when I have to shoot the front of a home, and the sun is behind (which seems to be 9 out of 10 homes recently), I can't get a decent shot. I've bracketed, metered on center, nothing.
This home was shot with the camera set to Landscape - which has not been a problem in the past. I tried manual, but didn't like those results either (ss90, a7.1, sb600).
I have to run right now to finish the days shoots - wanted to get this up. Will post more settings when I return.
Thanks!
