With Real Estate Photography out of the whole shoot, one exterior image will be the most important. In a newspaper, in a printed guide and on the main screen of an online search, one image is included – just one. It must compel the viewer to stop and look, stop and call, or stop and email. Multiple photos are posted for online listings, but the exterior image is still the gateway to all other ones. Don’t sell yourself short. We use a wide-angled lens, an infrared shutter release, and a poling mechanism to capture the right angle and lighting. And don’t forget the tint of the roof. A light roof says to a potential buyer that a roof has to be replaced. Roofs often reflect light, which makes them appear lighter in a photo than to the naked eye. We always darken the roof, but never more than it is in real life. Real-estate photography is a fine balance of selling the image by capturing the best possible lighting and angle, while staying true to what the place looks like in real life.

Lighting, exposure, and adjusting the aperture to balance ambient and natural lighting for interior photos is unavoidable in this profession. Wise Choice Photography knows how to balance natural and ambient light using manual mode and flash to make interiors appear bright and airy while still capturing the blue sky or giant oak tree peeking through the window. Also, much can be accomplished through the use of exposure/flash fusion and HDR
