Northern Virginia Realtors: April 2014

Photographs like this are easier to take then you might think. Take your flower to a bright window with the light coming in on one side of the flower.

Prop a piece of white cardboard behind it and shine a desk lamp on the tulip on the side opposite the window so that both window light and lamp light hit the cardboard as well as the flower. Take your shot. Take many shots... and experiment by moving your flower and light around.

Find your favorite look. Once you learn this technique, you can shoot any small object that interests you...fruit, eggs or small children...I like to photograph eggs sitting on things ( the light just wraps around their shape making cool shadows)

Finish the photograph by adding even more light from your favorite processing program. A good free one that I started with is Picasa by Google. Learning to process your photos for fun will also help you learn to improve the quality of your real estate listing photos.

Why pay more and get less when selling your home? Jan and Steve Bachman of RE/MAX Gateway still create full color brochures, an individual property website for your listing that goes out to 40+ public real estate search sites including Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow etc.

 

We also create a custom photo tour that is sent to other agents and prospective buyers.
