Photos Standards

Overview

In an effort to maintain consistency across the delivery of all photography services, please review and follow this standards document and ensure your camera settings can support the Format and Size as outlined below.

Camera

There are many great cameras available for real estate photography and we don't limit our staff to a single make or model.  What's important is the the camera's capability of HDR Photography also known as bracketing and its ability to shoot in RAW format producing a 16:9 photo ratio.

Wide-Angled Lens

All real estate shoots must be conducted using a Wide Angled Lens shooting at 10mm focal length.

An example of a Wide Angled Lens is the 10 - 24mm Fujinon Aspherical Lens.

Tri-Pod / Remote Shooting

All real estate shoots must be conducted using a sturdy tripod.  This is particularly important when shooting in HDR as the camera will take multiple exposures and any movement will distort the images during post-editing.  A way to remotely trigger the photos (via a smartphone or remote control) is also highly recommended to prevent camera movement.

Format (HDR)

All photos must be taken in RAW format using High Dynamic Range (HDR), this is also known as "bracketing" using 3 levels of exposure as follows:

 

  • 2 clicks under exposed

  • normal/standard

  • 2 clicks over exposed
