With this series we take a look at the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of real estate photography. Our ‘Wall of Shame’ features the bad (…and oh yes, the very ugly…) photos that some agents are using for their listings. On the opposite end of the spectrum, our ‘Wall of Fame’ features some of the most stunning photography agents are currently using to market their listings.
A little side note… on the weeks we’re not featuring the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, we’ll be providing photography tips designed to help you stay off of the Wall of Shame!
WALL OF SHAME
It was definitely a bright, bright sun shiny day in California the day this was taken! Not shooting directly at the window would definitely help when photographing this $499,000 listing.
Ok, fairly certain that doesn't belong there...and that having it there wouldn't be a huge selling feature. So why focus the photo directly on it (or take a picture of it at all for that matter)?? This is a $125,000 listing in Nevada.
Not sure if the camera was dropped while snapping this shot or if the agent was running through the room while taking it (lol!)... but I think it's safe to say this probably isn't the best way to showcase this $1,299,000 listing in Georgia
Now it’s your turn to sound off! Tell us which of these (top, center, or bottom) you think is the worst and why!
