How to Take the Best Real Estate Photos

If you have had your property on the market for a while now, you know how important it is to invest in good quality real estate photos. Not all potential buyers have the luxury of walking into your home to give it a good look, which makes investing in good quality photos very crucial in marketing your property.

Whether you decide to take them yourselves or hire a pro to do it for you, sellers everywhere can benefit from knowing what makes a good real estate photo. Read more about it below.


If you are hiring a professional interior photographer to do the job for you then you don’t have to worry yourself with this one.

But if you are thinking of taking the photos yourself, choosing the right equipment is key. Don’t think that your high quality smart phone is enough – it isn’t. High quality cameras combined with specialty lenses make a huge difference in a photo’s overall composition.


When taking pictures of any space, do not be afraid to experiment with angles. You can make any space appear bigger in photos just by tilting your camera. Professional photographers seem to know just which angle to take but you have to remember – they were new to this once before! So don’t be afraid to experiment with your camera.

You may have a good camera but if you have you have poor lighting then you will have a bad photo all together. The best source of lighting is the great outdoors that is why experts work extra hard to get as much shots done before the “Golden Hour” ends.

Golden hour is an hour and a half after sunrise so if you are planning on using natural light, best to wake up extra early!

After taking a lot pictures comes the gruelling task of post-production editing. Editing is a great way to cancel out noises and clean out pictures to make a crisper, more professional looking image.
