Real Estate Agent Headshot Photography

Achieving The Best Headshot Photography

Here are some good ideas for real estate headshot photography Number 1, check out the surroundings at the office of the real estate office. Inside there are many pieces on the walls around the different office and even the kitchen area that can make for some interesting backdrops. https://goo.gl/9sHf7J

An on location photo session takes planning. You need to take extension cords, maybe a ladder and some tape so you tack down your lighting cords and extensions so nobody will trip over them. Make a check list of things that are a must-have when getting your best headshots.

Outdoor Portraits

Number 2, Outside the real estate office. If you know what you’re doing with your camera you can create some nice looking and creative headshots. Use a high shutter speed to blur out distracting backgrounds. Blurred backgrounds can give your professional headshot a very interesting look. Both indoor and outdoor headshots have their advantages. Using high speed sync with a nice size softbox can make a really nice image. If you’re shooting in the bright sun you’ll want to speed up your camera’s shutter. Using a wide lens opening also helps narrow down your depth of field.

Clothing Tips

Wearing colorful clothing for outdoor headshots can really make a nice portrait for your marketing materials. People tend to gravitate and attract to colors. Bright colors for outside portraits are actually the best. Be sure to have your hair looking it’s best. For women it’s a good idea to put on extra makeup. It can’t hurt. If you’re including your hands in the photos then be sure your nails are done properly. These are just a few tips to make you think before you go on your next on location photo session.

Why You Should Shoot Portraits Raw Instead of Jpeg

Donna_3515_pp2Interesting words on why a professional photographer should take business portraits in the camera raw mode instead of jpg. Taking portraits with raw makes all the difference in the world when it comes to quality.

Don’t be an amateur when it comes to your photography business. Learn how to shoot raw. It’s not that hard and it will save you a lot of time and headache. It’s not that your customers will know the difference or not. Most only care about the end results. Did you capture the expressions they were hoping for? Did you show patience with your customer during the entire photo shoot?

These are all key factors to creating a nice experience for your client. Shooting RAW, Shooting jog. It all depends on what your needs are. If you don’t know your camera settings and you’re constantly getting under or over exposed images then yes, you need to be shooting your camera in RAW format. You’re able to recover your colors , saturation and skin tones.

When shooting your camera in jpeg well, this is all ok if you’re on vacation and the images you’re taking aren’t that important to you. You can still get some decent images out of shooting flowers, trees, buildings or any other scenic.

Day to Day Life of a Photographer

her_0008_1_ppIt’s day to day being a professional photographer. You may not always have work every day or maybe you’ll go two to three weeks without a call. Then all of a sudden the phone rings like crazy and you start to appreciate the slower times. No, not really, it stinks not working especially when you love photography and love to create portraits for people.

Pace yourself, yes pace. You have to take the good with the bad. Don’t look at it as bad but a time to catch up on learning new and newer lessons on photography which is your craft. Watch plenty of videos from older photographers and yes, you can learn from the newer photographers that have only been out in the field for a year or two.

Bottom line is not to give up and always look to new ways to improve your photography skills. You don’t know everything there is to know so try to keep learning. It should give you inspiration to keep looking forward to more portrait sessions.
