Because good pictures sell houses, Washington Photo Safari – one of the country’s largest provider of hands-on photography training field trips-announces a new photo safari designed to help real estate agents improve the images of their listed homes. This 2 ½ -hour workshop, given by professional architectural photographer E. David Luria, will take place in a listed home chosen by the agents. Agents should bring their own camera, an external flash unit, and a tripod.
Topics covered include:
- How to make small interior spaces look larger
- How to use flowers, trees, and bushes to best advantage for good composition
- How to find the best camera angles for interior and exterior shots
- How to keep your vertical lines as straight as possible for professional photos
- How to take close-up pictures of exterior architectural details
- How to get rid of white overexposed windows in room shots without Photoshop
- How to balance indoor and outdoor lighting on interior shots
- How to double and triple the flash output of small digital cameras
- How to make lens and filter choices for real estate photography
This special photo safari can take place any weekday at a location and time convenient to the agents who sign up. The cost is $69/person, which includes instructional materials.
