Join Scott Hargis for an in-depth discussion in this video Talking through the technical settings on the kitchen, part of Learn Real Estate Photography: The Basics.
- So while we're still here in this kitchen,…let's talk some more about windows.…Windows are like the big thing for real estate photography…because we almost always have to get something of the view.…Unlike other genres of interiors where we can get away…with blowing them out tremendously.…Now, when I shot this kitchen just now,…I left that window about a stop to a stop and a half…overexposed, and that's where I felt that it should be.…I also knew, by the way,…that when I get my raw files back into Lightroom,…which is what I like to use to edit raw files,…my highlight slider is very powerful.…
I know that I will be able to darken that window,…if I change my mind when I see the picture big on the screen…and that could happen.…I'll be able to massage it one way or the other.…One of the things to keep in mind in terms of doing that:…I mentioned that the sky that I see,…which is the low horizon sky behind those trees,…is a little hazy and very bright.…It's going to be blown out and close to blown out.…There's not lot of color density right there.…
