Real estate photography is the category of photography with some unique attributes to it and there are a few secrets to it that many might not know while starting with it. In the case of real estate photography, we are dealing with inanimate property and so we will have a good level of flexibility that lets us use many techniques that a photographer might not be able to use in the case of other types of photography. Two of the techniques used by real estate photo editing services are shared below. That said, ensure to use these to your advantage.
Shooting Under Exposed
To the average person, it might not look like a good thing to do to shoot underexposed. You might be thinking that it is important to shoot with proper exposure for the shot to be properly lit. However, in the case of real estate photography, shooting underexposed is affordable. It would be helpful in the longterm to retain the highlights and details of the shot. This technique can work wonders for one exposure shot images. There are many photo retouching services and techniques that can help brighten up the image and still retain the highlights and details. These techniques can offer more control over the final image.
Shooting Multiple Exposure And Blending
In the case of real estate photography, the subject is never moving and therefore the photographer will be able to use a tripod to have the most stable shots of the property. This is one of the greatest advantages when speaking of real estate photography. The professional can have multiple exposures of a single shot and then blend them to have the perfect shot of the property. This technique is done by capturing a minimum of three different exposures. It can also be done with 2 exposures, but many real estate photo editing services consider 3 as the best minimum. Out of the three shots, one will be underexposed, one properly exposed and another one overly exposed.
All these images will be blended to have the best image of the property. The technical term for capturing multiple exposures is called bracketing. In simple terms, the professional brackets the shots from under to overexposed.
