In addition there is specialist lighting techniques to bring out the details and the character of the property making it look its absolute best.
Following on from having so many photographs means that the editing of the finalised image takes many hours in order to correctly expose all the different parts of the building. As well as getting all the lighting perfect to bring out the details inside giving an very detailed image.
High end specialist interior photographers will use lights to bring out the best of the rooms. Leading to minimising dark shadows in the corners which don’t look appealing to the eye. There will be more than one image taken for each room making the editing of each photo time consuming to ensure the room looks perfect for the client. If there are windows in a room a professional photographer will make sure that there is correct exposure of the outside view, again making more work when editing the final image.
Estate agents have photographers who take pictures of houses to sell them. They are excellent at photographing your house to make it look the best it can be without the additional editing that the higher end photographers use.
