Here are some shots of a lovely home on Somes Sound here on Mount Desert Island. I took these with a Fuji XT-3 and a manual-focus Rokinon 12mm lens. The trick to taking these kinds of architectural interiors is to make sure that the camera is both level and plumb to ensure that vertical lines in the scene remain vertical in the photograph. With the camera plumb, you may find that you are seeing too much ceiling or too much floor, and so you have to move the camera vertically up or down to get the composition just right. In the past I would have used a tilt/shift lens for these kinds of images, but to my knowledge, no one makes a wide angle tilt/shift lens for the Fuji. The XT-3 does have a built-in level/plumb indicator, so at least I had that going for me.
