This year I have started to teach more commercial photography lessons, that is teaching photography to those who will use those photography skills to directly help their own businesses. To that end I met Kelly this morning in Largo for a 1-on-1 DSLR Photography Lesson on how to photograph real estate, as she is an agent and wants to improve her listings with better images. She was a referral from Angela, another photography student and also family portrait client. Thank you Angela!
The photography lesson with Kelly this morning was a combination of the usual 5-step methodology (in manual mode) I teach everyone for creating a well exposed and sharp image in any given situation. However, I limited the scenarios this time of course to shooting indoor interiors. In this way I showed Kelly everything from how to properly change lenses, how to get the most stability out of a tripod, why you would want to purposefully overexpose certain images and also how to compose and frame shots to best showcase each room of a house.
It was a nice change of pace for me to teach this kind of commercial lesson and I look forward to seeing the no doubt improved real estate photographs Kelly uses for her upcoming listings! Visit her official business website if you are looking for a home in northern Pinellas.
