timing is king
Many photographers don't consider weather and time of day when scheduling their exterior photo shoot.
Good natural light wil always give the best result in with least effort, in contrast with hard post processing the exterior photos, replacing the sky, etc.
Follow these 3 steps to get the best results on your next photo shoot:
1. Shoot only in sunny weather
Sunny weather does not mean "there is sun in the sky", but the sky also needs to be blue.
A lot of you may find this hard for variety of reasons, but try to do it as much as possible.
Real estates tend to look most attractive when lit by the sun because the colors and the contrast of the photos will have a nicer tone and you'll be able to present the house in the best possible light (no pun intended).
2. Check the facing direction of the house
The facing direction is the direction that the desired side of the huse faces. You can check with the client or you can look for yourself on google maps.
Is the side of the house you want to present as a main photo facing east or west?
There are actually only two scenarios that you need to pay attention to:
3. Remove the clutter
Your goal is to put emphasis on how beautiful the real estate is. Unnecessary clutter distracts the potential buyer and gives impression of a messy real estate
Depending on the time needed to remove the clutter, you need to decide if it's less time consuming to remove it on the spot, or to get rid of it in the post processing.
