Video: Editing Real Estate Photography of a Living Room

Sorry if this gets a little wordy!

In this video I walk through the editing process of a living room from a townhouse I photographed recently in Passaic County NJ. The goal of this short tutorial is to help budding real estate photographers and to show realtors and FSBO’s how to better photograph their own listings.

Description:
This traditional living room is from a recent shoot for another real estate agent in my office.  This photograph is a two image composite consisting of one flash frame as well as one ambient frame.  The longer-exposure ambient shot allowed me achieve brightness in the distant rooms without the headache of using multiple external flashes.

What I like most about this room:
My eyes go right to the painting in this picture, just as they did when I walked into the room in person.  I think a nice piece of artwork can really set a room off.  When composing this shot I intentionally placed the hallway column just in the frame on the left and the picture frame on the right edge.  The result becomes a nice frame-within-a-frame composition.  I prefer to have a nice balance of negative and positive space in my real estate photography.

Camera equipment utilized:
Canon SL1 DSLR
Canon EF-S 10-18mm lens
Canon Speedlite 580EX II
Manfrotto 055xDB tripod
MHXPRO-BHQ2 XPRO

Software processing:

Description:
This large living room is actually from my own real estate listing. The image is a manual blend of one flash exposure and one ambient exposure. This is my preferred method for interior photography to retain details through windows while still picking up a glow from natural light.

What I like most about this room:
I enjoy the soft Tuscan color palette of this living room and of course the great square footage.
