June 7th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Real estate photos are supposed to sell the house and the features.  But sometimes, one item in a room or space can catch your eye.

Do you notice anything else but the cement mixer here?

The photographer shot the photo straight on.  Direct view right into the mirror.  Everything looks twice as cluttered and dark.

When taking several photos to stitch together for a panoramic picture, the photographer’s finger became involved.  The photographer took new photos, but the seller posted both versions.  Enjoy.

Uh, we can see the shadow of your head, Mr. Photographer.

The professional photographer used a tripod.  Unfortunately, the tripod shadow is not professional.

The photographer tried a different angle.  Nope, didn’t help.  The shadow is still there.

Real Estate Photography Pointers

February 25th, 2014 · 1 Comment

The super majority of buyers look online at photos of homes.  It’s make it or break it for sellers with their photos.

Buyers don’t want to see screen capture photos of homes.

We repeat, buyers don’t want to see photos of your computer screen.

Buyers don’t want to see people in photos.  If only the amateur photographer was as pretty as the bathroom.

Buyers don’t want to see snow inside a house.  Please dust off your camera’s lens before shooting.
