The Edit Room

Image
Now that you've gone through and photographed each and every room, it's time to get down to basics in the edit room.  There are many different ways to blend the photos of each room or shot together from the Internet. My preference is one called "Enfuse GUI".  This one allows you to load all the photos at one time into the program, then tell it how many photos you used to make up each shot, such as 3, 5, 7, or 9.  My preference is to use 9 different exposures with a 1 stop difference and an EV value of -7 to -1. After you have loaded all the photos into the program, you just choose how many photos are to be blended from each shot/room, the click the "Enfuse It" button at the top.  From here you just sit back and wait for Enfuse GUI to do its thing.  When it's done, the program will have blended all your photos and deposited them into a separate folder.  All you have to do now is proceed to the next step, unless there has been a mistake in the blending p…

Photographing A Home For Sale

Ok, now that you've completely gone through the home and done on the prep work, it's time to begin the job you were hired to do, creating a great set of photos of the home.

Where to start?  That's pretty much your own decision.  I've seen colleagues of mine start from the inside and finish with the outside or start from the outside and finish with the inside. I personally started from the front of the house and finished with the backyard.  Just my own preference if being kinda orderly.  No matter which way you start, its up to you, the process should be pretty much the same.

What makes the best photos?  This again is your own preference, but I don't recommend using a single shot with flash format.  Most new cameras now have an HDR function and since they only take 2 or 3 different exposures (brackets) I also don't recommend using this either. My personal recommendation is to shoot at least 5 different exposures (brackets) of the same shot.  Seven is better and…

What To Do Prior To Photographing A Home

Image
Have you ever been looking through the MLS or online "Homes For Sale" listings and wonder why some of the homes you see listed there look so horrible? Well let's take a look at what is the needed to make your clients, or your home stand out from the crowd.

As a photographer, upon arrival at a home for a shoot, the very first thing after unpacking and bringing the equipment you're going to use inside the home, is to do a thorough walk through of the home with the seller or real estate agent if possible.  In some cases, however, neither the real estate agent nor the seller will be available to accompany you on this walk through.  What you are looking for are things which are out of place, things which need to be properly arranged or removed, toilet seats which are up and need to be put down, shower curtains which need to be either closed or straightened, throw rugs which need to be properly arranged or removed, nick knacks which may clutter the shot, bathroom and kitc…
