Photoshop Techniques for Real-Estate Photos

· Real Estate Facts

A photographer’s job is to aid by technology and at the same time creativity, especially when doing photo sessions. A real-estate agent’s job is to convince the client that the property they are visiting is the best one that suits their needs and expectations. This is where the business prospers, when the photo in the catalogue clearly portrays the expectations and needs of the clients and the latter purchases the property.

For this cycle to happen, it should start with how the photo would catch the buyer’s interest just by looking at the photos in the catalogue. The photo taken must be so eye-catching that the clients will definitely visit and eventually purchase the property.

In this scenario, the first vote usually comes with exterior shots relative to the inside of the building. However, catching the attention is just the beginning. Keeping them interested is the main goal because sparking an interest in enough for a consideration and re-consideration should there be options. And options are opportunities that can seal the deal.

Exteriors Editing with Photoshop

Exteriors Editing with Photoshop

Photoshop is one of the widely used programs for post-processing production. This has different settings that can be used for real-estate photo editing. The Blending Mode settings use layers for editing. This includes the layers of adjustment for a number of effects.

For colour correction, adjusting the hue, saturation and luminance (HSL) can also be done through Eyedropper and Curves settings. Also, with the use of the Eyedropper tool, set the black and white point and apply to the former (black point) to the areas with a lower tonal value and apply the latter (white point) to the areas with the lightest tonal value. Also adjust the contrast accordingly.

Be aware, too, whether the photo has vertical or horizon lines aligned. Use the Transform Form Skew option found in the Edit menu of Photoshop. Once this has been done, the image would certainly seem stable.

Consider the overall image with the picturesque idea in mind. Deliberate on items that require changes — if necessary, these may be changed or eliminated. Will the light poles or picket fences of the neighbour help or destroy the house's charm? These can be extracted for improvement. Know that the objects withdrawn do not affect the land adversely.

The uniqueness of a bracket exposure is that it creates a picture of dramatic yet true charm. The best times for photo shooting are dependent on the direction and facing of the house. The sun should be behind a camera to illuminate the colour perfectly in order to give a diffuse look. Use bracket exposure or blend three photographs together for this scenic photo with the photographs produced with these settings.
