Prospective buyers are looking through many property photos. If you want your property to be noticed you need to present the best images possible.
- Use a wide angle lens for emphasizing space. A narrow shot makes the room look small.
- Look at High Dynamic range photography (HDR). This takes several images and combines them into one with a much higher than normal dynamic range. The images are much closer to the way a human eye perceives the world.
- Use wide ‘landscape’ shots, not vertical.
- Emphasis space and natural light in rooms. This is what viewers automatically are attracted to.
- Remove anything that looks like clutter. Some of these can be Photoshopped out, but it helps not to have the issue in the first place.
- Emphasis room features, the selling point.
- You can buy some ‘natural light’ globes and use them to good effect in darker rooms. Reuse the same globes as you photograph each room.
- Add some fresh flowers or bright pillows if a room needs some colour. Maybe move a bright painting to the room.
- Square photos of a room, directly facing the far wall, are a reasonably safe bet, but try other angles if they make the room look good.
- Outdoor photos can sometimes work well at dusk, or slightly before. The lighting is distinctive here, and combining it with Photoshop techniques is effective. Take daylight images as well.
- Dedicate a few hours to the photo shoot.
- Remember that digital memory is cheap. Take far more photos than you need, because you can always pick the best images latter on.
