Angles and Why They Matter for Your Listing Photos

Why is it important? Capturing the best angles in your listing is like setting the stage for the first act of a show. Each room has its own story, character, and highlights that, when presented well, can impact a buyer's perception and interest.

The Art of Photography in Real Estate: Real estate photography is more than just taking pictures; it's about storytelling. Through the lens, you're trying to showcase not just a building but a potential home for someone. Understanding how to capture the listing's best angles will help you show its character.

  1. Room by Room Strategy: Living Areas: Capture wide angles that show the extent of space. Include features like fireplaces or large windows. Kitchen: Highlight counter space and modern appliances. Shoot from a corner to capture the best view. Bedrooms: Emphasize peace, tranquility and create space. Include windows or en-suite bathrooms to add appeal. Bathrooms: Focus on cleanliness and modern fixtures. Mirrors can help make the space look larger.

  2. Exterior Shots: Curb Appeal: Ensure the front the home is clean and inviting. Capture it from an angle that shows depth and dimension. Backyard: Showcase any outdoor living space, gardens, or unique features like a pool or a beautiful view.

  3. Avoiding Common Mistakes: Too Much Clutter: Ensure each room is clean and decluttered before taking photos. Poor Lighting: Take photos during the day when natural light is best. Use artificial lighting to fill in dark areas. Unflattering Angles: Avoid shooting up at an object or down from a high point. Eye level is often best.

  4. Using the Right Equipment: Wide-Angle Lens: Essential for capturing the full essence of a room without making it look distorted. Tripod: Keeps your camera steady for sharp, clear photos. High-Quality Camera: A DSLR or mirrorless camera typically offers better quality than a smartphone.

  5. Post-Editing: Straightening: Ensure your photos are perfectly level and straight. Color Correction: Adjust lighting and colours for a natural, appealing look. Cropping: Remove unnecessary or distracting elements from the edges of your photos.

Understanding and capturing a homes best angles is key to creating attractive real estate listings. By taking a strategic room-by-room approach, focusing on exteriors, avoiding common mistakes, using the right equipment, and applying post-editing touches, you can present your home in its best light. Remember, you're not just selling a space; you're selling the potential for a future home. Make every angle count!
