Elevations

October 21, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Sometimes we need to look at things differently. Real estate is evolving especially in how we market our listings. For example, social media is playing a huge roll now. 

Professional real estate photography is also evolving. We have mirrorless cameras which are smaller due to the removed mirror mechanism. We have cameras without an anti-alias filter for sharper images. Professional cameras and related equipment are becoming more and more sophisticated and complex. 

One area that is evolving at a fast pace for both real estate and real estate photography are elevated images - either taken by a pole, a helicopter/plane, a drone, or a boom lift. Personally, I've invested a 16' pole set up that is great for homes with pools, gardens or are set up high on a hill. You get a full shot of the house and yard without having to look at too much of the roof as you would in the other elevated options. Helicopters/planes and drones are great for when you want to get higher, showing the proximity to the ocean or lake/bay.
 
Here's are samples of various heights of the same property. They all have a different purpose and are important to showing the house and the land surrounding.
