Tips and tricks to make your outdoor real estate photography stand out in a competitive market.
Outdoor real estate photography is something you can pour a ton of creativity into. In a booming market, it can be hard to be competitive with your real estate photographs. Getting fun angles, lighting, and even light painting can set your outdoor real estate photography aside from your competitors.
This beautiful Airbnb, called The Riverfront Retreat, is on the Buffalo River in Island Park, Idaho. This example of outdoor real estate photography was taken with a slow shutter speed to blur the river in front of the cabin. I used my Canon R6 and a tripod.
One of the most beneficial indoor and outdoor real estate photography tips is bracketing. Bracketing is when you take three different photos- one exposed correctly, one underexposed and one overexposed. (Examples above.) You must use a tripod and have your camera on a timer to avoid camera shake. In post production you combine these three images (I use Lightroom) to capture all of the shadows and highlights.
I also light painted the exterior of this home. Using a low shutter speed, I used a flashlight to light the places I wanted to look lit up while the picture was being taken.
Look at the beautiful image it creates!
