Tips for Exterior Photos:

  • Be aware of sun and where shadows are cast on the home. You want to take the photo when the facade is shown in the most flattering light, with few harsh shadows. Especially note if covered porches are dark – turning on the porch lights can make a huge difference in the shot.
  • Make sure you aren’t including extraneous items in the shot, such as cars in the driveway, trash bins, or a mailbox or tree branch that blocks the view of the home. Also – it’s best if there are not seasonal decorations visible on the home when you take the photo.
  • Don’t crop in too closely so that you cut off part of the house. Try to get the entire home into the frame with space around it on all sides whenever possible.
  • Landscaping is important – a photo during spring or summer when leaves are on the trees and the grass is green will generally be more appealing than when the grass is dormant and leaves have fallen.

Kitchen Flooring | Pros & Cons

It’s no secret that the kitchen is the heart of a home — more than just a space for cooking, it’s the place where family and friends congregate, projects are finished and meals are shared.
