De-clutter your home
Clutter will show in your photos. You must clean and arrange your home before taking any photos. Get rid of anything that does not complement your photos. Some of the furniture may look clean and good to you while in reality they can turn-off other people. Get a second opinion from someone neutral. Such a person should point out what does not need to appear in the photos. Remember to clean the outside of the home as well. Make sure that your home looks clean, neat and well-maintained and attractive.
Stage your home
“Staging” a house refers to making your home look attractive to prospective buyers. Staging is a proven way of enhancing sales. Real estate brokers understand the power of staging a home for maximum appeal. Some simple things you can do include doing some simple repairs, changing out the towels, adding a bowl of fruits and adding some ambience. Staging your home before taking the photos will ensure that your photos will come out vivid, vibrant and beautiful. Viewers will love the photos and your appealing home.
Subdue outdoor light when taking your interior photos
Too much outdoor light will darken your photos. When you subdue some of the sunlight, your photos will be brighter and more beautiful. You should take the interior photos when there isn’t too much sun. Experts advise the evening or early morning as the ideal hours. The light that will come through the blinds will be subdued and enough for perfect photos. For your exterior photos, the full, bright sunlight will do your photos justice.
Bend your knees as you shoot
When you bend, the vertical lines of the walls and windows come out clean and straight.
Consider hiring a professional
Photography is an art. An architectural photographer has the expertise and the equipment for the best photos. Your photos will be competing for attention with many other good pictures. A professional architectural photographer can improve your snaps to give them the edge they require.
