We recently put together this checklist for our clients to give to the homeowners of the houses we are photographing. Following these important steps will help improve the quality of the photographs and will help get more eyes on your listings which will hopefully sell the house quickly. Some of these are obvious, but some are not. We want the house to look just the way you want it to in the photographs at the time of the photoshoot. Some of our clients assume we can fix everything in Photoshop, but that isn’t usually the case. Removing objects or making major adjustments in Photoshop are extremely time consuming and unfortunately we typically don’t have the time to spend doing that. Using this checklist will ensure that you get the best possible photographs. Here is a link to download the checklist, but we have also posted the content of the checklist below.
