Taking photos in bathrooms can be challenging. It’s hard to hide yourself from reflecting in a mirror. The solution: open the medicine cabinet door and hide behind it! Brilliant!!

This photo is brought to us today from our reader Tyson. It’s from a Craigslist used car ad in Las Vegas, Nevada. He noticed the unwashed dusty car, the dent by the right front tire, the person in the photo, the dog, and the poor photography (shooting into the sun), many of the do-not’s of this blog. Would this photo prompt people to call about the car?

Blurry is not good. Poor lighting is not good either.
Fingers are not needed.
Photographers should not be in real estate photos either.
Repeat: photographers should not be in real estate photos.
This is not any better. [Thank you to one of our readers for sending us these last 2 photos]

Yes, this is an actual photo used to promote the sale of this house. We’re not sure why.
For this next house, they chose this photo to promote the living room. Why?
And at this house, there is a photo of a room corner. Is it a selling feature?

The photographer thought he would disguise his shadow by hiding behind an umbrella pole.
Or is he actually Dumb Donald from the Fat Albert TV cartoon?

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.
Don’t overexpose your shot. Yes, this really is a photo used to sell a home.
Fish eye lens are creepy. Don’t use them, especially in bathrooms.
Stay in focus.
Keep your hand steady.
Pay attention to the true horizon for a balanced shot.

A mannequin/statue of a king! Sorry there aren’t other photos of the king. We really wanted to see more of him. Imagine yourself as a buyer walking into this house and seeing the king with a sword facing you! From the photo, it looks 7 feet tall.

To the seller of this Chandler, Arizona home, we have 3 requests:
1. Do not use a fish-eye lens when taking photos of your bathroom
2. Do not stand in front of the mirror when taking the photo
3. Wear something more appropriate besides a tank top and pajama bottoms.

Unsafe fan with no protective cover.
This house was purchased in 2004 for $95,000.
They refinanced in October 2006 with a new $126,000 loan.
They refinanced again in June 2007 for $174,000.
Money was not spent on home improvements.
And now they’re selling it as a short sale.
