Apart from top-of-the-line equipment, professional real estate photographers require more than just a good eye. The gear photographers use is really secondary to what they are able to accomplish with the equipment they have. Exteriors have to be taken from the best angle and trumpet blue skies and puffy clouds. Interior shots should be well-composed, evenly lit and clearly convey accurate visual information about the space your prospective buyer is looking at. This why people like Mark Rowbottom excel at estate agents photography in UK. There is so much more to real estate photography than ultra wide-angle shots twilight and dusk images, pole aerial photography, panoramas, lifestyle images, time-lapse, creative light painting and so on.
A photographer using multiple external flashes (also called Strobes) and/or other continuous light sources is capable of capturing scenes in a manner that is just not achievable using only available light. Aspects like crystal clear window views evenly lit adjacent rooms and consistent color casts are extremely difficult to capture without using additional lighting. Of course, the real game changers are the photographers who know how to make the most of tools available to those who use digital editing and post processing to optimize the images. Remember to give priority to the building exterior and gardens, even if it means the photographer has to visit the property before the session date, for getting the best sales point.
