Amateur Real Estate Photography

June 27th, 2017 · 2 Comments

When in doubt, hire a professional photographer to take pictures of your home when selling. Otherwise, you’ll get stuck with these five examples.

First up, we see an amateur photographer who can take a photo of a house on his/her cell phone but can’t figure out how to transfer it correctly. He/she took a screen shot of his/her phone and used that as the photo. By the way, all 8 photos of the property were just like this one.

170627a

Speaking of screen shots, now we have an example of a shot of a screen.

170627b

Distorted photo yet it was still used to promote the house.

170627c

Watch out for shadows!

170627d
