- Alright so I have a pretty good sense…of what is going on inside, but…the outside is just as important…and we took a quick look as we first drove up…but we want to get probably just one good hero shot…of the exterior and the exterior photo…is arguably the most important.…I love the interiors but you have to think…about how these are going to get used.…The first picture, almost everybody is gonna see…of this house, will be the front exterior shot.…It's got to be good enough to make them…want to click and go on to the rest of them.…
So this is one that you have to spend some time on.…We're in great shape, the sun's over here,…it's gonna keep moving over that way.…The further it goes, the better light…we're gonna have on the front of the house.…The shadows are just gonna kind of go across,…we'll get good relief it's not gonna be flat.…We're not going to have any back lighting issues today,…but we don't have to do it right away.…We got pretty good clear conditions…and a few puffy clouds up there,…but the sun's only gonna improve things the longer we wait.…
