Professional Real Estate Photography
Professional Real Estate Photography is not like portrait photography or wedding photography. To capture the true sense of a property, the glamour should be subdued and the imaging must be completely realistic.
I believe that a person, who has seen a good photo series of a property, should have comparable sentiments when they actually visit the property. I want to avoid disappointments like “the room doesn’t seem as big as in the photos”. Or “the view isn’t as striking as depicted”. Those kinds of disappointments are deal-killers. Ideally, the house should have a bit of familiarity to the prospective purchaser because they have already seen it in detail on the website.
Still, the property should look as good as possible to entice interest. Good photos are absolutely important when marketing a property. The buyer should feel an attraction to the property so they want to come out and see it.
Good photographic equipment is essential to do the job right. This includes a non-distorting wide-angle lens; not of the fish-eye type. Training and experience are also important, as well as the ability to clean up photos that show unexpected blemishes. What used to be the dark room and the retouch desk is now the computer lab.
I also believe the presentation of high-resolution photography helps. Not everybody appreciates large photos and not every computer user has the ability to load large images quickly. This is why I favour the two-step (sometimes three-step) approach to opening up large images. First a thumbnail photo opens; when clicked it opens to the larger image. This ensures that all computer users can get the most out of my on-line feature sheets.
