I was assigned by a local holiday let company (Edinburgh Flats) to shoot a simple but lovely single bedroom property on Polwarth Terrace, Edinburgh.
The place is quite central, in a quiet area and with easy access to public transport. A great place to stay on your Edinburgh holiday. Nevertheless, it is essential to properly market this flat with photographs that do it justice in order to maximise its earning potential.
I like to use natural light in the photographs to give a better idea of what it’s like to “be there”. It is my preferred style of real estate photography. Note that it does require combining multiple photos in post-processing because the camera can’t possibly cope with the range of light and shadows one typically encounters.
It is much easier to light the interior with flash as the entire scene can be captured in a single image, simplifying the post-processing process in Photoshop.
Luckily for me, it was a beautiful day when I was asked to take photographs of this property, so I could also get a nice exterior picture as well.
