I am very fortunate to be selling (and leasing) commercial real estate in a city with amazing architecture. With over 10 years in the industry, I have a discovered a few photography tricks of the trade. When taking exterior building shots, I like to ensure that the sun shining and that there’s a nice blue sky. If possible, I like to get leaves or plants in the foreground of the photo to help frame the shot and add depth.
I also try to get photos which help showcase the character of the property if applicable.
It only takes a few extra minutes to consider the lighting, angle and composition of the photo. With digital photography it costs nothing to snap a few extra “non traditional” shots to see what you get. Getting a good shot is not the final step… editing is also important. Creative cropping and fine tuning of exposure makes all the difference.
In an effort to improve my photography skills I have recently taken to honing my skills via online training and participating in a virtual social platform called Guru Shots.
