One Light Real Estate Photography:

A Guide to Compositing for Interiors and Architectural Photographers

 
 
 

In the One Light Real Estate Photography Course, I walk you through step-by-step, and show you everything you need to know to start producing well-lit, color corrected and professional images in the shortest amount of time possible. I will also be discussing ways you can attain these high quality results with minimal equipment, which will allow you to move faster and less obtrusively through homes. 

There are over 12 hours of lessons on topics ranging from an explanation of what a Photoshop mask is, to how to light and create stunning images for higher end clients. 

Purchasers of the course will receive a download link to the 48 course videos, access to three of the layered .psd files made during the course, as well as the actions I use within Photoshop. I will also be answering questions about the course content by way of my contact form. Support for course content will also be available on the course's Flickr Group, and on my YouTube Channel

"Andrew Pece's "One Light Real Estate Photography" video series is a great tool for significantly raising your quality while dramatically improving your efficiency. With Andrew's casual, colloquial approach, you'll feel like your buddy is personally pulling back the curtain and giving you an insider's look at exactly how he creates such killer images. The series includes over 12 hours of footage and 48 videos, so you'll find yourself watching parts over and over again, uncovering new nuggets of info each time. For less than the price of a single photoshoot, you'll get enough knowledge, technique and insight to raise your photography to the next level. I've had more than a couple "a-ha" moments while watching this series."
