The key to successful real estate photography is to find your creative outlet. There are many ways to do that, but one of the best and most effective is to focus on the creative part of the work instead of the technical part. It’s all about being comfortable and knowing how to relax. You want to enjoy what you are doing and enjoy it enough to stay motivated.

How To Focus Your Camera For Real Estate Videography

A good photographer doesn’t ever look at their pictures as a work of art, but rather as an expression of themselves and their work. A good realtor should not have to explain the technical side of things to a client or have to deal with technical difficulties. The real estate professional does not have to be concerned with how they look in their pictures. They can focus on their images and let the photos speak for themselves.

It’s important to remember that professional quality isn’t only limited to the lighting or the camera. If you don’t take proper care of the equipment that you use, then you will be wasting time, money and energy. If you don’t know how to focus your camera for real estate videography then you won’t get the results that you are expecting.

Focus on the technicalities first. Learn the technical terms of using your equipment, learn how to use different lighting techniques, and use a wide variety of techniques to get the desired effect. If you are using a fast shutter speed then you should try to maintain that speed as much as possible. Also, be careful with your zoom. Zoom too far in the field of view and you’ll lose focus. Focus on what you are trying to accomplish and you will be able to focus on what you need to have. Focus on what is important and you will have beautiful images.

The last thing you want to focus on is the look of your real estate photography. This is where you really have to focus on your own creative side. If you are happy with the final product then you should feel good about your work.

So, when you are focusing your camera for real estate videography keep in mind that it’s about you, your vision, your creativity, your techniques, and your enjoyment. You might think that you are doing this strictly for a job, but when you see the finished product you will realize that it’s a lot more than just another assignment.

About Minnie Watkins

I've always had an interest in art since I was a little girl. I remember I used to go and visit galleries with my grandpa and sisters, and its from those visits to the galleries that my love of photography grew. Instead of just looking at pictures being captured from someones mind, I loved how the photographs that I would see on the walls were actually capturing a moment in time that someone has caught on camera. Once my mother bought me my first camera for my 13th birthday present, there was no stopping me. I would photography anything and everything, and I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I was lucky enough to be taken on as an apprentice at my local newspaper as I worked my way through college. At first I would only help out in sorting out which pictures would be displayed alongside each story, but I got my break when I went on an assignment with a news reporter who was working on a story about a small animal farm. As much as I thought I knew about photography, that day taught me that I had so much more to learn. Now I didn't have the comfort of taking as much time as I wanted to compose my shots, and of course the animals would never pose in the way I wanted. So fast forward, and here I am 25 years later sharing all of my knowledge with you. I've been lucky to travel to several countries in the world and have taken photographs of all kinds of things. But 7 years I decided to come home and needed to earn money to survive. Somehow I fell into the world of real estate photography, loved it and have stayed with it ever since. Now my mission is to help those photographers who want to transition into this world of real estate, and I hope the articles that I have pulled together help you in some shape and way.
