This is my second run at full motion video. The equiprment I used was: Nikon D7000 Bogen Tripod Benro Tripod ePhoto 46" Video Slider with a ePhoto fluid video head Tiffen Merlin Video Stabilizer Adobe Premier and After Effects (6 comments)

real estate: Give Your Photos "Curb Appeal" - 04/02/10 02:32 PM
We have all heard about curb appeal when it comes to selling a property. It is equally important to give your photos the best "curb appeal" possible. That means going back until we get the lighting right. I had to list this home for sale in Andover on Wednesday, but given the monsoon season in New England (HAHA) I had to take the front picture in the rain. It is also my policy to take the front picture of a home in full sunlight with blue sky in the background. It took two days for the skies to clear, but I (12 comments)

real estate: The Difference Among Listing Agents- What Will Your Agent do to Sell Your House - 11/10/09 10:16 AM
Early on in the business, I tried to figure out what seperated one listing agent from another. We all had access to our states Multiple Listing Service. After putting some long thought into it, I decided that the main difference among listing agents was what would they do to sell your house. I have discovered that it really doesn't matter how long you have been in the business or what company you hang your license. You, the agent, and what you bring to the table to list a home is the product. I started by just creating a list of what (11 comments)
real estate: Free alternative to Adobe Elements - 08/19/09 08:47 AM
FREE IMAGE MANIPULATION RETOUCHING PROGRAM I have had this freeware program GIMP for awhile. I finally started playing with it, and found it to be a great tool for image manipulation.

It is not quite as easy or intuitive to use as Adobe Photoshop Elements and seems to be slower, but if you have an a desire to buy Adobe Elements but didnt want to spend the money try this program.... you'll love it, and its a great way (1 comments)
