As the weather gets better, Real Estate Photography projects pick up a bit. Usually there isn’t much time to pause and reflect on the details, these jobs are time and cost sensitive so you have to focus on the big picture– the general feel of the home, the living space and most importantly– the kitchen! During the past week, however, I had the chance to shoot with Doc Williams of Coldwell Banker Tomlinson South at a model home by Copper Basin Construction in the Pillar Rock development. They have a variety of floor plans and upgrades but we focused on many of the standard features in Pillar Rock’s homes that are usually extra cost to the buyer.
Narrowing down to the details allows me to use different methods of editing. Some are represented with a form of High Dynamic Range but many of the features showed better starting with a “normal” exposure, or two, and using Photoshop to edit and blend various pieces together– drawing out the wood grain or texture in a backsplash, whatever method created the best “feel” in the final image. Here are a few detail shots from Pillar Rock and a listing by Pam Fredrick on Barker Road–
