Looking for an exterior photo that stands out? Elevated photography can take a home from nice to attention grabbing.
What is Elevated Photography?
By raising the camera you change the point of view to much higher point than that of the average photography. Most photography will be taken at a height of between 5 and 6 feet as this is the height of the average person.
Elevated photography has the camera at a height of 20 to 30 feet. This gives a better perspective of the home and surrounding grounds. This eliminates the problem of too much grass in the foreground and distortion from pointing the camera up.
Why Should You Choose Elevated Photography?
When browsing homes for sale you will notice that almost every exterior image is taken from the curb at standing height. This is because most photographer will stand outside the home and take a picture.
This may work fine, but it doesn’t create an impact or assist in making the home stand out. An elevated image will create that stand out factor you need to help sell your home.
What Type of Real Estate is Best for Elevated Photography?
