Holiday Home Cottage
So this week I took my first step in to the world of real estate photography. I had a vague idea of what I was aiming for from some light googling before hand. I think the results were fairly satisfying.
A couple of tips from what I gathered:
- Given the distortion of the ultra wide angles required for this type of photography, it’s important to be conscious of the straight lines. I used either the most obvious horizontal or vertical line closest to the centre to square up my images. I would have had a much more rewarding time if I had an ultra wide tilt shift lens for this job as the distortion is somewhat distracting.
- Good ISO performance or a tripod and remote shutter will make your life a lot easier with this kind of thing, even the brighter rooms needed a lot of exposure to bring to life.
This is a good way to chill out in fancy houses that you otherwise might not have access to.
