The 3-Shot Approach to Better Listing Photos

Not sure what to focus on when taking listing photos? Even if you have a solid grasp of lighting and composition fundamentals, it can be easy to overthink how to best capture the essence of a home.

Enter this three-step method for telling the "story" of a home. Inspired by photojournalism, this technique lets you convey the essence of every room in a house with three easy shots. You'll never be stuck deciding what to photograph again!

Wide Shot

The wide shot conveys a sense of place. It acts as an overview that establishes where we, the viewers, are. The "primary exterior shot" required by most MLSs is generally a wide shot--it showcases the outside of the home and as many property features as possible.

When shooting interiors, use the wide shot to establish where we are (kitchen? master bedroom?) and show as many attractive features of that room as possible.
