Bad photo of a bedroom.

Better photo of the same bedroom.  So why include the first one?

Bad photo with person’s reflection in the window.

Better (?) photo without the person’s reflection.  So why include the first one?

Stymied By a Mirror

February 23rd, 2015 · 3 Comments

Poor photographer.  She just can’t seem to get the right shot.  Straight on isn’t working for her.

This angle isn’t working either, but at least we didn’t have to block out her face.  [side note: does it look like the door is not installed?]

Nope.  We still see you.

In photo #4, she gave up on the mirror and shot low.

And we’re treated to a fifth photo of this bathroom!
Here’s a suggestion:  take a vertical shot from the left side of the bathroom door.  You’ll get half of the mirror and vanity (without the reflection) and get the toilet and shower in the shot.
Another tip (I got this one from a professional photographer):  close the bathroom door; place the camera at the mirror and take a picture of the door.  Then when you take a photo with you in the mirror, you can photoshop the door into the mirror.

Three Back Yards Lacking Appeal

Stop!  Just stop with the garbage and junk and clutter.  Yes, we’re talking to you, little girl.

This is better than the previous photo, but still…

Look.  You get to stare at the back of a building.  With its rain spouts aimed at your yard.  Fun!

Dixie Cup Dispenser!

February 13th, 2015 · 2 Comments

We had one of those Dixie cup dispensers at my childhood home.  I loved it.
I’m not loving the cluttered bathroom counter or the amateur photographer.

Budding New Real Estate Agent

January 9th, 2015 · 4 Comments

You must be at least 18 years old to be a real estate agent in Arizona.  But you’re never too young to be a wannabe agent.  This kid’s got a knack for selling homes!  He’s stamping down the ground after installing the for sale sign by himself.

Oh, the Humanity

More people in real estate promotional photos.

At least we won’t have to ask him to get out of the chair to turn off the TV.  The other guy is wearing a towel?

Uh, sir, would you mind putting the toilet seat down?

He’s trying to explain why he charged her $5,000 for the new landscaping.

“Now where did I put those kitchen cabinet doors?”

“I can’t get out.”

We can see you.

He heard that flowers make a house more appealing to buyers.  Either that or he bought the flowers for his wife out of guilt; notice the head hanging down in shame.
