UAV Vision Media has some insider tips on real estate photography:

Use Proper Equipment: Invest in a good quality DSLR or mirrorless camera with a wide-angle lens. A wide-angle lens helps capture more of the room and give a sense of space. A sturdy tripod is also essential for keeping your shots steady and ensuring sharpness.

Plan and Stage the Space: Before taking any photos, declutter and clean the space thoroughly. Arrange furniture and decor in an appealing way to create an inviting atmosphere. Remove personal items and excessive clutter to make the space appear more spacious and neutral.

Optimize Lighting: Natural light is your best friend in real estate photography. Open curtains and blinds to allow natural light to fill the room.  Bracket your photos or use additional lighting equipment such as flashes or soft boxes to fill in any areas with inadequate light.

Composition and Framing: Pay attention to your composition and framing. Use leading lines, such as hallways or diagonals to draw the viewer’s eye into the photo. Maintain straight vertical and horizontal lines to ensure the image looks level. Frame your shots to highlight the room’s best features and create a sense of depth.

Capture Multiple Angles: Take multiple shots from different angles to showcase the space comprehensively. Capture wide shots to give an overall view of the room, as well as close-ups to highlight details and unique features.

Highlight Key Features: Focus on capturing the property’s unique selling points. This could be a beautiful fireplace, high ceilings, intricate architecture, or stunning views. Highlight these features to make the listing stand out.

Post-Processing: Edit your photos using photo editing software to enhance the image quality. Adjust brightness, contrast, and white balance if needed. Straighten horizons, remove minor distractions, and ensure colors appear natural. However, avoid excessive editing that can make the images look unrealistic.

Showcase Exterior Spaces: Don’t forget to capture the exterior of the property as well. Capture the front facade, landscaping, outdoor entertaining areas, and any unique features like a pool or patio.

Show Lifestyle: Include shots that convey the lifestyle potential of the property. For example, showcase how a living room can be used for entertaining or highlight a spacious kitchen for culinary enthusiasts. Help potential buyers envision themselves living in the space.

Attention to Detail: Pay attention to details like symmetry, cleanliness, and proper arrangement of furniture. Small details can make a big difference in the overall appeal of the property.
