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.

Twilight exteriors for real estate can run anywhere from 50 to 100 dollars per photo. Yet, on any given day, we are only able to shoot a single twilight image in the evening, and perhaps one in the morning. In the video, I discuss a technique where we can produce very convincing twilight exteriors that were shot in the middle of the day. And, the best part is, the lighting for the images can be done in under 10 minutes.
The Rovelight 600B previously sold by Adorama is legendary in its output to cost ratio. Its power and onboard power supply make it an ideal option for those who need a lot of light on-the-go. Yet, to make it even a more compact option, it would be nice to be able to hand-hold the unit without the need for a bulky lightstand. In the video, I discuss ways you can modify the Rovelight to be able to comfortably fit it into your hand, and use it as a powerful tool in the realm of real estate photography.
I have been asked a number of times if it is ok to add "sun" to real estate photographs, especially in cases where the home would potentially get no sun in this area. Where the sun will be at any given time during the year is a very difficult thing to discern. In the video, I talk a bit about the sun's patterns in the sky, and how the sun's path varies quite a bit through the year. And finally, I recommend a course of action when it comes to lighting real estate photographs in general.
Whether you are just getting into real estate photography, or are a seasoned pro, lights and triggers can be a confusing subject to tackle. In the video, I explain why I feel speedlights are underpowered for most real estate work, and discuss the flash units I feel are best suited for onsite real estate work,
