Tips For Good Real Estate Photography

December 7th, 2015 · 3 Comments

Here are some helpful suggestions for taking the best real estate photos.

Don’t take close-up photos.  If the general public can’t figure out what your photo is about, then step back and retake the photo.

Don’t let yourself be seen in real estate photos.  Buyers don’t want to see the photographer.

Don’t let your photography equipment show up in real estate photos either.  Not very professional looking.
