Ok, so I just wanted to post here to get some tips from you all who've shot photos of new homes or homes for sale before. I have a home builder friend who I've been working with on his company web site and he wants me to take some photos of his homes interior and exterior. Which I've done one other time for a realtor, and it turned out ok, she liked the photos and I thought they were decent.
My questions are for some best practices...time of day to shoot, if the house faces east/west vs. north/south is there a better time to shoot, do you use flash, do you use the interior lights on, etc...stuff like this.
I have a 24-70 which seems to be my widest and probably best lens for this kind of work. So I'm just looking for some tips, or some things that are must dos and donts etc...
Ok, It looks like I've jumped into a thread with some awesome photographers doing what I am only wishing and hoping I can do, based on the shots posted in here. Lots of nice work you all. So how does an amateur get to the point where I don't look amateur?
Do you all use flash photography or strobe setups? All hand held, or mostly tripod? As I had posted before, just looking for some good beginners tips.
I'm just a little overwhelmed and don't know where to start, I mean I see your shots and they are all great angles, but is there an angle, or height, or shot you look for in every room, to get consistent shots etc?
I see some of your shots, and I can see where you made a good shout out of a spot I wouldn't normally think could look so cool. I try to get the entire room, or shower, or cabinet and sometimes your shots are just cropped in or crops of certain areas of those spots and they look great, is a lot of that done after a wider shot, or do you just see that and take it, etc...I know it takes an eye for photography, to capture certain stuff, and since this kind of photography is new to me I'm new to the angles and my eye isn't quite trained for the cool shots yet...
