(cheerful music) - On a real estate shoot, we don't always photograph every single room in the house, and very often, it's the bathrooms, especially the smaller ones, that get left off. But the master bathroom is always on the shot list. Think about if you're going to buy a house, this is one room that you definitely want to preview to decide if it's something you're interested in. Hi, I'm Scott Hargis, and even though I've been ambitious and worked hard, eh, my career's led me here, in the bathroom.
But we're going to get back out of it, and it's actually going to be pretty interesting. We're going to shoot this master bathroom up here in the Oakland Hills. At a glance, it looked really nice. When you look at it a little closer, it's Home Depot nice, so we're going to find a way to make some three different photographs in here. One of them is going to be a quick and dirty way of getting an acceptable photo in a very short period of time, but then we're going to come back and spend a few extra minutes, and find a way to make a much more appealing, maybe even portfolio worthy photo in here. I think we're going to find a way to make one little Four Seasons nice picture before we're done.
Again, at a glance, it's a big pretty room. But our first step is to put a photographer's eyes on it, and see it deeply, see it for what it really is the way the camera's going to see it. Let's get started with that.
