Palm Desert, CA – Infrared Real Estate

Palm D_Talke
I recently had a Real Estate session in Palm Desert and brought along my Infrared camera! I shot about 13 IR photos and was hoping one IR shot would prove to be cool! I thought this one was it. The house is on the right. A few houses share the centrally located pool. I do not think I have ever seen an Infrared Real Estate photo? The agent may use it for the MLS? Does it work? Hopefully!!! Will let ya know how it goes!

HDR Real Estate business in Orange County is great! The housing market is picking up here. Offers come in quick and many are investors that make cash offers! Crazy! Tough to contend. I photographed this beautiful house recently! 5300 sq ft and a list price around $1.65 Million. I better start playing PowerBall! LOL

One photo from part of the backyard…very nice!

Orange, CA – Real Estate HDR

Real Estate_Talke
From a recent real estate session in Orange, CA….this a beautiful back yard patio. Perfect for relaxing or for a cookout! I have been shooting a little more HDR’s for Real Estate. Here in SoCal…lots of houses are always up for sale! We pick up the local housing catalogs and so many of these magazines have very bad HDR house photos. Most agents do not realize the pics are a bit lackluster. Halos and inconsistent light in most pics. But for photos…beauty is in the eye of the beholder…so maybe it works for them?

I try to make my Real Estate HDR’s realistic with that HDR touch. At first, my Real Estate HDR’s were full on HDR. Very cool…but in my opinion…too much for the average home buyer visually.

I think most of the HDR shooters in this area are “turn and burn”. Meaning they shoot, process and quickly move on to the next job. Its about job quantity for them. Quality takes a hit. HDR’ing is art…if done properly. Real Estate agents deserve better photos. If you are an HDR artist…give this business a try!! House photos are typically the first item potential buyers see….you only get one chance to make a first impression!! Your pics should bring people in the door!
