I am a videographer, editor, and producer by trade. I have always had a good eye for composition, understand lighting, exposure, but I have never thought of myself as a photographer though I have taken some excellent stills in the past. I am going to be taking some photos for a friend who does remodeling work, most of the photos will be in bathrooms and kitchens. I will be using a digital rebel xt, and was looking for any suggestions anyone may have. Some of these bathrooms are rather small so I will need to be wide since I will not have any room to back up.

Two things. Don't use the incamera flash. Get a shoe mount flash and a good diffuser. I like Gary Fong's as it is big and has a detachable dome. With those, point the flash at the ceiling and you should get an evenly lit room without harsh hilites.

Thanks Ed that looks interesting. I hadn't planned om using a flash at all. I have a small chimera I was going to use to fill the room. I also need to be careful to not over power some of the accent lighting that highlights the spaces.
what I really need is a wide angle suggestion for that camera.

Are you buying or renting? If you're renting get the best wide angle lenes you can. A Canon 20mm and a 16mm would probably be enough. Or a really good WA zoom in maybe the 17-35 or 12-20mm range. If you're buying it depends on how much you can spend. If you're buying post and I'll try to stear you in the right direction.
