New members to the Photography for Real Estate Flickr group often have questions that come up with some regularity (Frequently Asked Questions-FAQ's) that many people have been kind enough to give input on in the past. As a quick way of helping to respond to some of these FAQ's, I made a brief list. We can "bump" this post up every so often. If you come up with other qu...
I recently shot a hotel for full rate (which was quite good ) and during the introduction / walkthrough I mentioned how important it was to have the beds and room looking as good as they can be..
I do the shoot and they are really happy with everything except they noticed that one of the beds has a very wrinkled bed skirt.. I agreed and sure, I probably could have menti...
I just bought a new tripod and head (thanks to Rich Baum for suggesting the Manfrotto 410 - I love it).
Previously I've just eyeballed my framing and tried to get things as level as possible. This new head has a built in level...but I'm not sure if I like the results. I've tested the level by putting another level on top of the tripod to verify it and it seems fine.
I thought some of you may be interested in this application for Android devices. This video shows it with LRTimelapse but it should work great for pole shooting or just general photos. vimeo.com/72653255
I purchased the wireless router and a Asus Memo Pad for just over $200.00 BTW the router looks just like the CamRanger controller but it costs $60.00.
Friends please help make the best decision. I want to buy a nodal ninja to occupy it with my nikon d800 tokina 16-28 mm with, but which is not the best option. Nodal Ninja 3 or 4? or another system?, I'd also like to record panoramic views
Even though the homes I am shooting are in "sunny" San Diego, I've been running into problems while shooting front exteriors where the home is facing the north lately. The shorter winter days and relatively low sun angle is causing some front exteriors to never receive direct sunlight during the day. As such, I am shooting the homes in shadow with a big bright sunny sky ...
I really do. Everyone in this group is kind, considerate, polite and helpful. We may have disagreements, but name calling and other forms of insult just don't happen. Not that I've seen, anyway.
Compared to other photo-centric places I frequent, this is like like going inside a church vs the crime-ridden slums of www . you-name-the-photo-site . comnetorg
Thank you al...
I've been shooting real estate photography for just over a month now, and was wondering what's the best way to help vacant homes look more desirable. Most are mid-level homes, shot for reasonably cheap, for realtors that don't care to stage them. I shoot mostly HDR. Any comments are more than welcomed. Thanks in advance!
Many homes I shoot are pristine before I get there. However, as we all know, many are NOT.
So, I'm standing there with my camera waiting….. and waiting…. I figured I might as well take advantage of the situation!
Enjoy! I'm sure you've all been there….
I often get asked what a frame composite is, and how they're made so I decided to made a quick video the other day explaining how I used frame compositing to create the image below.

When my client uploads the mls photos to Circlepix for a slideshow the slideshow looks blurry. Is it because she is using the lower res mls photos instead of high res photos? I think this is the problem. If so, do you all send a low res and a high res file to your clients? I thought high res photos took too long to cycle through on mls.
I just booked my first builder shoot and would like to know what, if any, additions/changes do you make to your "regular" licensing agreement. I am going to provide MLS quality images. Any thing additional would be additional.
So I shoot an amazing 6,000sqft high end home the other day for an agent I do a lot of business for. I sent her the photos etc, I then In return received an email telling me I had to sign this release for her office administrator.

I am just dabbling in RE photography as of recently, thinking it would be easier to start than it actually was! I have huge respect for those of you who do such excellent work. I did my first "real" shoot a few weeks ago and after taking all day, I only came back with around 15 good images. Now I have been contacted by more realtors who liked my work, and one wants at leas...
Here's a subject I don't remember seeing lately, how do you approch shooting / lighting a really big room?
I know this subject can change with all kinds / sizes / shapes of rooms but in general what are you thinking about going in?
First thing would maybe be to slow the shutter to allow more ambiance?
I was also thinking, as I am just getting into shooting composite...
I have not really had the need to transfer a lot of Raw/tiff/DNG (really large) files but I need to do a few lately. What's the most effecient way to do this?
It can be done with dropbox but my experience is that the person receiving might need an hour or two to download. I'd like to avoid this.
As a Tourfactory photographer I decided to follow their Facebook page and see how they market the service. The very first tour they posted since I started to follow was of a $4.7M home. The 'bragging' shot that they put on FB was very disappointing, but looked like maybe it could have been a difficult room and they were show off the room, not photography. Well, I looked at...
