Also, what are you guys doing for daytime exteriors that makes them look so much better than mine? My freaking downfall are daytime exteriors. Mine are garbage. Are you guys just waiting for good sky days? I feel like I've seen so many shots from people like Mike Kelly who shoot a high noon day shot and it looks good.

I try to shoot the daytime exteriors when the sun is hitting the right side of the house I want to shoot. The back of the homes, or ones in the shade are usually not very post worthy, also do a lot of sky replacements in my daytime photos too.

So here is a shot I did that was outsourced and not edited by me. The result I'm sure would be similar, but even with the sun hitting the front side of the house it's just so bright, even with a polarizer. Any ideas of what I can do?

I know my first mistake is trying to put my standard where Mike's is, but how the hell does the mid day lighting look so smooth and not blown out?

These are both images from Mike Kelly's website portfolio:

looks HDR-y & doesn't look like there's enough contrast, I think having the front very bright is fine but the shadows here are too bright, the photo you had a few posts up where it had much darker shadows, I think was better.

Mike Kelley is a wizard I'm pretty sure he shot this one handheld from a boat

The issue is Mikes is shot with clouds, yours is shot in full on sunlight.

So I'm basically just getting bad light and hes waiting for perfect light and clouds to soften his light?

I did notice a page or so back that joooowan had an apartment exterior which also looked good. I do agree that the last one I posted was too HDR'y which I don't like at all, but that's what the outsourced company used for the exterior, which I will inform them I do not like.

the two MK examples you posted look more like portfolio or marketing images, not RE...which means he probably camped out there for a couple days to get the best light and conditions. The first example is very nice, but the second is just kinda meh..nothing special about it really. They both look a little flat to me.

Here is a twilight I did last night. The sunset was happening right behind me so I used my other body and grabbed it and used that for a sky replacement. Can I get some C&C on it before I finalize?

looks pretty good to me...being picky, the left most light on the garage is a little cooler temp than the one two bays over, but that could be the bulb that was there...most noticeable is the flash pop on the right side, in the landscaping, and it affects the siding there too.

Thank you. Yes, I always feel like I never warm up the flash frames enough (Since I don't gel), so I should probably do that. I can also see on the furthest right window where I need to brush out a little flash on the window frame, and maybe pull back there in the landscape. Thanks for the input!

Thank you! I ended up adjusting a few things, and cloned a window to light up that room near the front that was dark. It was a laundry room and I didn't notice the auto light timed out on it haha.
