One of the most enjoyable parts of photographing a vacant house and a job without time constraints is the ability to be creative without the direction of the homeowner or realtor.
After shooting this kitchen, I decided to spend a few more minutes shooting brackets of the room. While the HDR came out okay, I much prefer this shot because of the dramatic light.
If you are building your real estate photography portfolio, and have the ability to experiment with light in the homes you are shooting, do it.
Is there a fireplace? Play with the light.
Is there mixed lighting? Play with the light.
Are there big windows? Small windows? Window shades? White ceilings? Tall ceilings?
One of the best parts of photographing homes is the variety of shapes, sizes, and features.
Be creative and have fun doing it.
Thanks for reading and happy shooting,
PS. Here is how to decorate the walls in your home.
