We're often too lazy to grab a gray card or a CTO gel when we are in need of them. This video discusses ways you will never have to go without either of these two items again, even if you forget them!
Websites are one of the most important marketing tools you can have as a business owner and operator. Real estate photography beginners can have trouble creating and designing their websites. In the video, I discuss the major topics you will need to tackle in order to create your website.
Is there a particular piece of gear you are just dying to see get reviewed? Let me know in the comments section below what it is, and I will do my best to get a review up about it. DON'T BE SHY!
As a real estate photographer you will be asked to deliver headshots, whether you like it or not. It would be very ill-advised to pass up on these opportunities to provide your clients with what they need, and to built rapport. In the video, I discuss techniques for producing extremely simple, hassle-free headshots both indoors and out.
Choosing equipment for real estate photography can be a difficult and stressful task. We are lucky enough to have quite a few choices, but which ones will perform and get us the biggest bang for our buck? With the advantage of dropping by my local camera store quite often, I list out what I find to be the absolute best and budget-minded gear for anyone who wants to get started in this business.
I did a long review of the Rovelight RT 601 here. I will leave that up in case it may be helpful for those who are interested in the light.
HOWEVER, I NO LONGER RECOMMEND THE ROVELIGHT RT 601 or 610 FOR ANY TYPE OF HAND HELD APPLICATION. This is because, the triggers the unit comes with (TR-Q6 or TR-612) override your power setting when set on the flash unit itself. And, there is no way to circumvent this.
I now only recommend the Rovelight RT 601 and 610 if you don't mind using your own trigger with it, or if you have no need at all to control the power from the actual flash unit itself.
To be honest, I still can't believe this, but the trigger seems to have been purposefully designed this way. It sort of makes you wonder why they even bothered with a power wheel on the light.
What I do still recommend for both hand held photography like I do are the original Rovelight 600B, the Xplor 600 unit, and the N-Flash.
Is it ok to make a dark, dingy master bedroom to appear like it has warm, beautiful light streaming into the windows? Based on a premise from Oscar Wilde's "The Decay of Lying", I argue that all "bad" interiors photographs will depict the space how it is in reality. And that all well-done interiors photographs will depict the space in an idealized fashion, and as a result will be better able to stir emotion and create interest.
New Orlit Rovelight RT 601 Review & Range Test: Best Monolight for Hand-Held Real Estate Photography?
While the recent development of the R2 system (including the XPLOR 600) has gained much of the attention within the portable, powerful lighting realm, there is new family of options that may prove to be just as valuable.
The new Orlit Rovelight family of units are ruled by an extremely powerful duo of transceivers (although not yet perfected); the TR-Q6 and the TR-612. The Orlit Rovelight RT 601 (non-TTL) and 610 (TTL) will no doubt prove to be major players in the field of powerful, portable, cordless lighting solutions one can hold in their hand.
Almost every twilight exterior we shoot, we are in a situation where we have set up our gear, and we are then waiting for the light levels on the inside and outside of a home to even out. In the video, I discuss a technique where you no longer have to wait for the light. You can create even levels of light yourself!
