Real Estate Photography!

Hi there! Welcome back to this week’s exciting blog! This week I thought I would share with you what I did for this particular photoshoot and give you tips where I feel like I am qualified.


  • Canon T3i
  • Kit lens which is a 18mm-55mm.
  • Tripod.

Shooting Techniques!

For this particular shoot, I used the HDR technique but you could also use:

  • Exposure blending: To read more about this technique, there is a really good article about it on
  • Wireless Flash
  • Light Painting.

Regardless of the technique that you use, you should always be using a tripod to get steady and sharp images.

Final Tips!

  • Take photographs of the exterior, these are the first images that the potential buyer sees. It is important to take the time to find the best angle.
  • Real estate benefits from early or late day lighting. Using Google, you can determine the best time of day prior to the photoshoot.
  • Always avoid shooting into the sun
  • Try the dusk/dark technique, it will allow you to turn all of the indoor lights on and photograph the house from the outside. If the indoor lights are uneven, you can always add lights to balance.
  • On the interior, the must shoot rooms tend to be: the living room, kitchen, dining area, master bedroom, and master bath.
  • Use the interior objects to create a visual flow.
  • Be careful when processing real estate images, like removing power lines, to avoid misrepresenting the property.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s blog and if you have any tips that you would like to add, any questions, or comments please feel free to email or leave a comment below.
