Photography is so personal and as each photographer has different requirements it is difficult to talk about what to bring in your bag. If you value the high quality of the real estate market images, I suggest the following baselines to get you started.

Cameras and lenses

The cameras evolve very fast, new models appear every year, and all have a different level of photographic skills. Nevertheless, Real estate market photography is possibly less demanding for the camera. You do not need the latest camera or the best camera to get good shots. Just make sure the camera model you are using has lenses that zoom in with a wide focal length of 24mm to 28mm (35mm equivalent). A lens with an ultra-wide angle is the key to the success of real estate photography. The perspective offered by these lenses includes the complete rooms and makes the spectators feel as if they were at home. You will benefit from a high performance ISO camera and the more recent the camera, the better performance it will have.

For example, Cameras like Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GF3 Body are perfect for this use. Its outstanding specifications:

  • Micro Four Thirds CMOS 12MP Sensor
  • ISO 160–6400
  • Exposure bracketing
  • GF2-style touch screen
  • AF point selection area
  • Pinpoint AF mode (enlarges the focus point to allow confirmation and fine tuning of the AF position)
  • Photo Styles (the same response colors used for G3)


You must have a tripoid with extra-long legs to get a high perspective on some photos. Whichever tripoid you choose, you must have a sphere head to get creative shots with easy adjustments.

2. Take unique photos.

Plan each shot.

The best time of day to take a photo outdoors is the morning when the natural light is clear, or at the beginning of the afternoon. In both cases, the light should come from the side where the house stands out.

3. Do not use flash (if possible).

Take natural light with your camera in Aperture Priority mode. This will avoid unnecessary shadows and show the scene naturally. Start at f8, then start making exposure adjustments. The longer the lens focal is, the more camera movement will occur. Mount the camera on a tripod and use the camera timer to create the best shots. The timer with 2 seconds will work perfectly.

4. Improve your final photos

Improve your photos. A basic understanding of good photo editor software can only be to improve your final image. It improves the color and the final view of the photo. Make your photos look attractive, clean and professional by removing unnecessary objects.

5. Always put copyright in your photos

By posting your property photos on websites, you run the risk of being stolen and someone else claims ownership of the photos. Copyright protection involves the authentication of digital content and ownership. The most common method to prevent copyright infringement is to put watermarks on the photos that are online. Visible watermarks make unauthorized use of photos harder.

Visual Watermark is a professional choice to place copyright protection in your photos by adding visual watermarks. It provides advanced options for creating different watermarks, modifying existing watermarks and saving them for future uses, inserting batch watermarks and much more, so you can insert the copyright in each shot.
