Here are some tips about real estate photographs that need to know for a beginner:

1.Do not shoot wide: As a beginner photographer, my first feedback was to zoom out as far as my lens would take me and then curse the darn thing. But, after more of an eye for how a room should feel, I noticed that it’s OK to not get every wall in the photo.

Another problem with shooting too wide is you make a silly feeling of space and openness.  If the back wall looks really, REALLY far away in the photo, buyers might be bulked to see that the room isn’t as big as the photo made it feel.

2.Mind your backgrounds: A landscape photo is broken up into 4 parts: foreground, background, and sky.  When all 4 pieces come together, you have the photo worthy of a blue ribbon at your state fair.  For real estate photography, you have to mind 3 parts to create a good photo.

3.Elevate your exterior shots: Jim has mentioned before that, he likes to use a painter’s pole to get some added height to his exterior shots.  Going from 6 feet to 12 feet doe’s absolute wonders to making an image feel more impressive and powerful.

4.It is ok to blow out windows: One of the biggest obsessions with novice real estatephotographers is getting that super crisp view from the windows.  While this is helpful in many occasions, especially if there is a great view, it is also OK to blow out the windows a little.  What this means is that the windows are far over exported based on interior exposure.  If you look at any of the photos in constructive Digest, chances are the windows will be blown out.


5.Use the saturation:  This is easy but often under-enjoyed editing technique.  Use your color saturation sliders to control window bloom and color casts.
