This course covers all of the common questions that many new real estate photographers have when it comes to getting started. First, Matthew talks about the basic flash units and transmitters needed to pull off his signature style. Next, he covers the basics of on-camera flash as well as the basic compositional elements when photographing a home. Then, Matthew covers the basic principles of combining flash photography with ambient shots and how different that style is compared to HDR (high dynamic range) photography. Finally, to finish up the interior section, Matthew will show you all the techniques for not only photographing a room but creating a mood using light painting. This is a great way to make your photography stand out from other photographers who simply take a photo and move on. In the following section, Matthew talks exclusively about exterior real estate photography. He will show you some simple things to think about when photographing exteriors during the day such as composition and the different angles to capture. In the last video for this section, Matthew covers creating one of his signature twilight exteriors just using one image starting in Lightroom and moving to Photoshop. You will also receive the files used in this course so you can follow along and learn step-by-step.
