Hello everyone! There is a new and improved real estate photography blog in town. Some of the upcoming highlights can be found below. Be sure to get in touch IMMEDIATELY if you are interested in participating in any of the below topics. This group is about you, and with your participation, it will be a great resource.
I put this at the top because it is the most important point to me. Do not be dissuaded from participating or submitting images for critiques if you are just starting out. The community is as much about you as anybody. And, you clearly have the most to gain from being professionally critiqued. Simply put, I do not want beginners to lurk until they gain some skill, I want you posting and contributing right from the get-go.
Whoever wants to get a professional critique of their images can do it here! I would like critiques to follow two formats: 1) a SET of less than 10 images, and 2) being a SINGLE IMAGE format. "Set critiques" will probably be more useful for those looking to improve their real estate photography sets, improving the overall feel of their images. Single image critiques will be much better at zoning in on particular issues with your lighting or processing.
Q & A's WITH YOUR FAVORITE PHOTOGRAPHER
I can't make any promises! But I will contact any photographer of the community's choice, and see if he/she is willing to answer a few of our questions via the blog. Feel free to make any suggestion you would like and I will do my best to make it happen.
Quite frankly, marketing is the single most important aspect of photography. What better way than to get an analysis of your marketing from others who have proven they know what they are doing. We will also try and get Q & A blogs up with the marketing masters within our community.
Put your images up against others to get an idea of where you are at, and where you need to improve. And don't forget to vote for your favorite image. Details to be announced.
This is as much about YOU as anybody. Let me know if you have a suggestion to make the community more informative and engaging.
Nobody wants to hear me blather on everyday. Help me out by sharing one of your ideas, techniques or experiences with the community.
Buy or sell used gear from/to people you can trust. Used gear is obviously a great way to buy at much better prices. Yet, the drawback is you never know who you are buying from. Buying or trading gear from within our own small community would be a great way to guard against being scammed on a site like ebay. This is especially true since we are all, more or less, using the same type of gear in the community. If you are interested in selling or trading your used gear here, write a short description of your item(s) with contact info AND photographs, and send to email@example.com
