Every week we feature the good, the bad, and the ugly of real estate photography. This week you may notice a common theme with our Wall of Shame… all the photos are pretty dark (among other things :)).
These are far from being the darkest we’ve seen, but the Wall of Shame photos below are representative of a very frequent problem we see in hundreds and hundreds of real estate photos every week. Next week we’ll be posting a Photography Tip that will help you avoid taking ineffective photos like the ones you see below…
WALL OF SHAME
That is one dark street! Probably not the best time of day to take a picture...even a night shot needs a little light (or at least some lights on in the house!). This home is listed for $389,000 in Long Island, New York.
Ok, that's a bright color on the windows, but it's not enough to save this dark (and blurry) photo. This Michigan home is listed for $630,000.
Showcasing this dining room with a darker photo probably won't give potential buyers warm and happy thoughts of future family dinners. This Illinois home is listed for $499,900.
Sound off! Let us know which of these (top, center or bottom) you think is the worst and why. We’ll tally up the votes and will post the top 5 worst photos of the month at the end of each month!
WALL OF FAME
Night shots can be stunning and incredibly effective when done right! This gorgeous shot is a model home (new construction) in Texas, listed by Kathryn Castellanos of Builder Homesite, Inc. No list price was provded, but similar homes in the development started at $261,990. Click the photograph above for more information on this listing.
This gorgeous Wisconsin home is filled with lots of light and great views. It is listed for $759,900 by Grace Stoll of Coldwell Banker. Click the photograph above for more information on this listing.
This bright and inviting Florida home is sure to attract buyers! This home is listed for $675,000 by Claudia Lewis of Century 21. Click the photograph above for more information on this listing.
