Surely more than once, if you have looked for houses to rent or buy, you will have noticed the photos. Sometimes they’re good photos, but in many others they leave so much to be desired that even the desire to consider ownership taken away from us.
So today we want to give you 10 tips for taking a good photo of your home.
Before you start, of course, your best bet is to tidy up the house, clean it up, prevent people from getting out, and most importantly, run away from the mirrors as if we were vampires.
Many current mobiles have the active watermark, a text that appears on all photos indicating the model name. It bothers and distracted of the picture. If we want to put a watermark for some reas on, better with gray tones and with some transparency, so that it can only be seen if we look at it.
How to add or remove watermark from your photos on Android
If you want to add or remove watermark from photos you take with your camera on Android, the steps to do so are as follows.
Another item to remove from photos is the date. This is all the more relevant, because if it has been a while since we made them, it can make the interested party understand that the house has been on the real estate portal for a long time, and that it could good deal the price since we haven’t sold it before.
Use the wide angle
For several years now, most medium and high-end mobiles have had a sensor Big angle. It’s perfect for getting rooms out of the house completely. However, it is better to accompany these photos with a point made with another sensor to show the actual dimensions of the parts.
Be careful with exposure
You can always take the photos at the time you want, but they must not come out too dark or too bright. For this we have to control the exposure and, if necessary, use the HDR.
Find the best angle for each room
The rooms and bedrooms in our house are all different. That is why it is not a good idea to take the photos of the same point, for example from the doorway. You have to look at the best perspective for each place, in order to appreciate it in all its glory.
There are never too many pictures
They say that virtue is in the middle and it is true that the ideal is to take a few dozen photos of our house. Maybe 20, maybe 30, or maybe 40.
Either way, it’s better to do 70 than 7. An interested buyer will not give up looking at more photos, but you can do it because there is not enough and look at other options which have more images.
Highlight the elements of the house
If our house has any unique elements like fireplace, patio, designer kitchen, highlight it, take more photos of this area. This will help us differentiate ourselves from the other alternatives that will be on the portal.
Take the pictures during the day
We use homes day, night, and literally anytime. Despite this, it is always best to use the moments of more light when taking pictures. Avoid nights and rainy days to make it as bright as it is.
Don’t forget the surroundings
Beyond the interior of the house, it is a great idea to photograph both the facade and the items that are nearby. We are talking about parks, restaurants, schools … of course, we do not use distant monuments just because they are known.
Orientation of photos varies
Finally, it is not mandatory to take the photos vertically or horizontally, depending on the space, one or the other will be better. That’s the key, knowing when we’re going to see better space in one position or another. Of course, it a priori shies away from very high screen proportions such as 20: 9 or 18: 9. It is always better to use a 6: 9 or a 4: 3, although most applications allow you to modify it.
