understanding real estate photography videos

This is a series of videos to explain how a professional photographer who specializes in Real Estate and Architectural photography can help real estate agents and brokers to present their properties in bastidethe best light. This is designed to arrest the attention of potential buyers so that they stop and really look at the property and more importantly, remember it and want to go and see it.

The stronger and more lasting that first impression, the better the chances are that they will then give you the opening to sell it to them. Many brokers can take quite acceptable photographs when the conditions are optimum. But even the best cameras cannot solve photographic problems; only photographers can. The camera is only the tool, not the solution.

Photographer, Peter D'Aprix, provides a brief introduction to professional real estate photography, why it often takes a professional to obtain results that will flatter a house and property even under difficult conditions. It is based on the premiss that it is photographers and the training and experience of photographers and not cameras that take the photographs that work. Understanding the entire process of how a camera works from dealing with ultra wide angle lenses to rendering a house even when the lighting is really bad, is part of the set of skills and experience that a professional real estate photographer brings to the job.


> The Blessings & the Curses of Ultra Wide Angle Lenses in Real Estate Photography:

Most point and shoot cameras today do not have very wide angle lenses. Even most SLR digital cameras only come with an 18mm wide angle zoom lens. While this will cover many average situations, real estate photography is filled with interiors and even exteriors that are out of the range of such a wide angle lens and require a much wider lens to truly represent the room or the exterior. Small rooms, cramped environments, high walls in the garden or other obstructions such as hedges and fences all contribute to lack of coverage and require a much wider lens. But these lenses are expensive and tricky to use. This video discusses examples.


> !! REALLY BAD LIGHTING !! in Real Estate Photography:

Photographer, Peter D'Aprix discusses and shows how even really bad lighting on a house can be remedied. Either because a house faces north and never receives sun or photography is restricted to certain times of day or by budget, often the photographer is faced with this situation. If the front of the house is in the shade, then the back of the house is probably receiving the sun. By the use of specialized photographic methods including HDR (High Dynamic Range - a method of capturing and combining a range of exposures) and post production techniques, even a really bad situation can be salvaged and Peter explains how well trained and experienced professional photographers achieve this. And why a professional should be hired to produce those photographs that will make the house look its best despite such difficult situations.
