Cooking up the perfect kitchen image

January 25, 2018

So how much effort goes into a real estate photo?  The difference between a quick iPhone snap and a fully processed professional image is pretty significant...it takes time and effort to get the final image conveying the best the property has to offer. Even a kitchen photo has a fair bit of processing behind it!   


There are various methods real estate photographers use to get a great final image.  I commonly use a HDR method - it allows me to get in and out of the property quickly (many agents and owners like this!), keep my prices down (good in a low to moderate cost real estate market), and provide a great image quality.  Here's an example of what goes into producing a nice kitchen image using my version of the HDR method.


1) Straight out of the camera - 5 images with different exposure levels.  I use a tripod to keep the camera perfectly still...some of these shots can take up to 30 seconds depending on the light levels.
