How to Market your House with Photos
There are several tips for marketing the house you’re putting up for sale with photos. First if you don’t own a digital camera, buy or borrow one a high quality camera is one of the most important tools for marketing your house. Make adjustments to your camera for great interior shots to display on the internet or on your marketing fliers. For example change your ISO setting to 800 for better light absorption in low light or indoor settings. ISO is the adjustment on your digital that simulates film’s speed. Slow your shutters bit down considerably so the camera’s able to absorb enough of the existing light to produce a good picture. The number one rule when you’re using slower shutter speed is to use a tripod. The longer the shutter is open the more natural and ambient light you get in to the photo but slow shutter speeds register all the movement in your hands and make photos blurry. So use a tripod.
In order to get wild shots, you want the camera to pick up the ambient light and the glow coming from any lamps and lights. Different lights produce different hues, incandescent cast the yellow hue that gives your photographs a warm rich look. When dealing with light pouring in from a window turn the camera toward an object that has a similar distance from your picture subject and has the general light level of the rest of the picture minus the window. Then push the shutter button part way down and hold it until the camera focuses. Without releasing the shutter button turn the camera back to your shot of choice and complete the shot. Depressing the shutter button part way, not only locks the focus but also locks the other balances including light and white balance.
In most cases you want to stand in the doorway to take pictures after all this is where buyer’s first see the room and professional stagers set up rooms for the greatest appeal from the doorway vantage point. Shots from the corners give you the widest angle and enable you to take in as much of the room is possible in the frame. Shooting a picture from too high vantage point, however makes a room looks smaller, a bad idea when you’re selling a house. If you’re five feet eight inches or taller, it’s also a good idea to use a slightly lower vantage point.
