5 Tips for Better Real Estate Photography

Whether you're taking shots of your home to keep as mementos, embarking on a new career or helping out your listing agent, below are five tips for taking better real estate photos.

Clear clutter. This should be a no-brainer, but be sure your home is properly staged before you hire a professional or pull out a camera.

Try a wide angle lens. A wide angle lens will allow you to capture more of your space.

Use a tripod. A tripod can help stabilize your camera for a cleaner, steadier shot, and assist with low-light situations.

Adjust your camera settings. While every camera is different, if you're using a DSLR, the following should help: keep your shutter speed between 1/60 and ½ a second, your aperture between F8 and F11, and ISO under 400. Unsure what this means? You may want to hire a pro, or simply do a bit more research.

Shoot in magic hour. Dusk or dawn tends to provide the best natural light for shooting. Whatever you do, avoid mid-day, where bright harsh light can blow out your shot.
