Last week, photographs were taken of our house by a professional for the sale brochure: interior shots of the main rooms and an exterior shot of the frontage for the cover.
The interior images were fine, but the cover image wasn’t. It was over-exposed by at least half a stop, and the viewpoint chosen was poor. The agent wasn’t happy and neither was I.
So, as I like to think of myself as a reasonably capable photographer, I thought I would see what I could achieve. After all, having lived here for over thirty years I do have some ideas on the subject. The sun obliged by putting in an appearance. I perched on a step-ladder and took a few images and sent them off to the agent to show what was possible.
The agent was pleased, so pleased in fact, that one of my images (the one you see in this post) will now be the cover shot for the sale brochure when the time comes for the house to go on the market – which isn’t actually imminent. Job done.
