Introduction to Real Estate Photography

What you need to start shooting real estate photographs

Basic equipment and tools

You will need the following equipment:
  • DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) or Mirror-Less camera: This is the standard shooting apparatus for professional photography. The single lens design of this camera provides the viewfinder with an accurate image as captured by the camera’s sensor.
  • Wide-angled lens: A lens with focal length between 10 and 24 mm can capture large areas in their entirety. You’ll be able to shoot landscapes, buildings and surrounding environments, and spacious interior rooms easily using this type of lens.
  • Flash: Lighting is a key element in real estate photography and many beginners can initially handle and work with a single flash unit. As you gain more experience and skill in lighting units, you’ll be able to handle small flashes and the more challenging HDR flash unit.
  • Tripod: A camera tripod keeps your shooting equipment steady, producing clear pictures that appear through the viewfinder.
  • Lighting stand: This accessory allows you to get your flash off your camera and to move your flash around the subject.
