Now you might think that you need to put on yet another hat, this time of professional photographer, but it isn´t as hard as it sounds. Looking like a pro has a lot to do with knowing a few tricks of the trade, and which resources to use.
Here are the (AWESOME) photography tips from the Best Real Estate Software Team
1. These days all you really need is a single device with which you can create both high-quality photo and video that handle just about any job. And if you’ve decided to go out and purchase a new camera, great! Just be aware that you iPhone can probably handle the job as well. iPhones have an autofocus feature that is easy to use: simply place your finger on the screen to tell your camera where to focus. It will simultaneously set exposure (lighting) to suit that area.
2. No matter what type of camera you decide to use, start by creating a ‘shot list’ a list of every picture you need to take of the property. This way you won´t forget a shot and have to go back to the property.
3. Most computer monitors have a horizontal scale which is a good opportunity to take pictures in a landscaped orientation, rather than in a vertical, portrait style. When photographed in landscape, rooms will appear larger and airier as well. If you are using your iPhone, Grid is a feature that provides a grid of horizontal and vertical lines over the display screen. Grid is especially helpful when photographing properties because it assists you in making sure that your picture is level. To turn on grid, tap the Options button at the top of your screen and toggle Grid to On.
