Today, real estate photography is virtually always used to make a first impression on a possible buyer.

Then give Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices a call at (310) 373-0021 and we’ll get started.
Without the best equipment, you won’t be able to take the best pictures
It makes no difference how many megapixels your phone has; it is insufficient. To know how to frame an image, you’ll need more than just a high-end camera. You’ll also need editing software, lighting, and experience.
Professional cameras contain larger sensors that can capture more information, resulting in higher-quality images. Part of it has to do with the camera, and part of it has to do with technique. This method begins with the photo session and concludes with photo editing to improve the images. This is something that requires the services of a professional photographer.
Nobody else cares about your knickknacks
Your knickknacks are what distinguishes your home from others when they come to visit. They assist in showcasing your individual flair. In real estate photography, this is the polar opposite of what you desire. Potential buyers don’t want to see another family in the house; they want to picture themselves there.
Get rid of as many knickknacks, personal photos, and other personal items as you can. Yes, that includes art and small gadgets in the kitchen. We even advise you to remove shampoo from your bathroom. You want your house to have the appearance of a model home.
You are not concealing the dirt you believe you are concealing
It’s crucial to remember that the camera isn’t forgiving. A small stain that you might not see can be picked up by a camera and have a significant impact. This is the drawback of such high-resolution images. You must make certain that your home is completely clean. You’ll need to keep your house in tip-top shape. Of course, any minor flaws may be handled in postproduction, but the more you can stay out of the picture, the better.
The day’s weather isn’t the only weather that matters
On the days leading up to your picture shoot, you’ll almost certainly be checking the weather forecast. It’s important to remember that the weather on that particular day isn’t the only factor to consider. If it rained the day before, you might have to cope with flooded yards and other unpleasantness. If there has been a drought, you may be dealing with dark, dry backgrounds.
Working with a real estate broker who can handle everything for you is the greatest way to ensure that you get the best possible results for your real estate images. To learn more, call Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices at (310) 373-0021.
