Why Photography Matters in Real Estate


Are you looking to sell your home and wondering how to make it stand out from the rest? When it comes to listing a home for sale, the quality of the photographs can make a big difference. At Lovejoy Real Estate, we understand that stunning visuals are crucial to selling a property quickly and for the best price. In this blog, we’ll explore these different levels and why flash-ambient photography is the best method for getting more eyes on your home.

First off, let’s talk about the different levels of real estate photography, ranging from basic iPhone quality shots to more advanced techniques like HDR and flash-ambient photography.

With the advancements in smartphone camera technology, it’s easy to snap a quick photo of a property with your phone. However, iPhone quality photos usually lack clarity and often have poor lighting. This type of photography is usually not good enough to showcase your property in its best light.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography involves taking multiple photos of the same scene at different exposure levels and then combining them into one image. This technique can create more balanced lighting with greater detail in both the brights and shadows. However, HDR photos can sometimes look bland or run the risk of not being color accurate.


Flash-ambient photography is a technique that combines ambient light and artificial light (flash) to create a more balanced and natural-looking image. This technique involves using a flash in different locations to enhance the existing light in a room, resulting in a bright, evenly lit space. The goal is to make the room look as inviting and spacious as possible, while preserving the true colors and textures in the room. This method eliminates any interference from mismatched light fixtures colors (cool vs warm light) and bright exteriors.

Now, why does photography matter so much in real estate?

Well, think about it. Most buyers start their search online, and the first thing they see is the photos of the property. If the pictures are not up to par, the potential buyer may quickly move on to the next listing without even considering your property. That’s why it’s essential to have high-quality photos that showcase your home’s best features and make it stand out from the crowd.
