Taking Wide Angle Shots
This is the most common photo needed in real estate. If you’re shooting a home, you’ll need a wide-angle shot of every room as well as the façade of the home and the backyard. You will get better at picking angles for these, but, at first, start by backing up as much as you can in the room and shooting it straight. If you end up in a corner, getting too close to the wall will distort the image.
There are a few basic things you’re looking for when you’re taking wide-angle shots. First, you need to balance the floor and the ceiling to not have too much of either. You want to also minimize distortion as much as possible, to make things look straight. If you need to move furniture to accomplish either visual balance or a straight look, you should.
Also, it’s ideal to achieve good light and a good balance of light. If your shots look too warm or cold, balance it and try to get to 5000k, the most neutral lighting.
When you’re taking wide-angles, aim for F9-F11. It’s a little slow, but it helps you make the most of the light. And, of course, go for the lowest ISO possible.
