Out of the Window Shooting

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Evers & Co.

Think outside of the normal angles of shooting. I have found shooting out of windows on the upper floors or roof of a home to be a great asset to seeing large plots of land. The two pics I have enclosed were part of the whole of the yard shots I used on the fact sheet and web. They show a better view of what the land truly is and without being obstructed by trees and other obstacles.

Nice shots, Piers!  And I'm drawing a blank on this one!  I have to see more of the company listings!

This is a great idea and we have a new listing coming up that this will work great for!

Piers - these are fantastic.  Are you removing the screens?

There were no screen, but I have shot threw both screens and window with only a little deterioration.

I always retouch ever image in Photoshop. I try to bring out the details in the shade, under Image / Adjust / Shadow-Highlight. I bring up the shadows percentage, revealing some of the lost details in dark areas. I will give an example in one of the next blogs.

I did a 180 degree picture of a backyard from the second floor and it came out great. Thanks for the reminder.
