Chichén Itzá

Chichén Itzá, a great historical Mayan pyramid located in the Yucatan State of Mexico.

I have been here many times, and it never disappoints. There is such incredible energy in this place. When you stand in front of the great pyramid of Chichén Itzá, close your eyes, and you can see and hear the Mayans that used to spend time here.

About the image: I wanted to create a magical moment that really described Mexico. I used a Mexican Mariachi hat and a Mexican traditional blanket around the model to make it easy for the viewer to see where the pyramid was located.

Camera settings: 1/125 F11 ISO 100  Edited with my Lightroom Presets.

8 Tips and Tricks to improve your Real Estate Photography

Real estate photography is a great way to make money on any market. However, a lot of photographers start out without knowing much about how to take great real estate photos. It is not the hardest thing in the world, however, it does require technical ability and an eye for the craft. 

In this video, I share my most used techniques when it comes to Real Estate Photography. Real Estate Photography can be lots of fun and a great way to make a living money. 

The Gear You Need

Here is the gear I recommend to get the best possible Real Estate Photos. You need a Full Frame Camera, a Wide Angle Lens, a Speed Light, a good Tripod. Keep in mind that most realtors will ask you for a full frame camera and a wide angle lens. I shot with the Nikon D800 and the Nikon 14-24mm to edit your images I recommend the best Real Estate Lightroom Presets out there. 

Here are my favorite ways to take Real Estate Photos to a new level.

1.  Use a tripod. It’s important to bring a tripod to your next shoot. A lot of homes can be very dark and by having a tripod it will guarantee a clean sharp image every time. 

2.  Use a flash. Having an on/off camera flash is a nice way to light up a room. This can help set the mood of a room by splashing a little light in a dark corner or a shadow.

3.  Move around. Do not stand in one place. Move around and find the best possible angle to get the best possible shot. 

4.  Use a wide-angle lens. Rooms are often small, a wide angle lens can create the feel of a big space. 

5.  Take your time. Do not rush the shots. Make sure you think about the composition and get the best possible shot. 

6.  Edit your photos. Once you have a nice collection of images, take them to a computer and edit them. I recommend Adobe Lightroom.  

7.  Use Lightroom Presets.  This speeds up your workflow and gets a consistent look on your images every time.  I recommend my Real Estate Lightroom Presets.

8.  Batch edit your images. This will speed up your process and guarantee a speedy delivery to the client.

The River Cafe

Making my way to dinner I ran into this awesome scene. It reminds me like something out of a movie. I was so hungry and tired, but I had to set up my tripod and take this shot. Needless to mention it was freezing cold out and my hands were extremely cold. I like how the photo turned out. I’m glad I stopped and took the picture.

El Malecon

Here is one of my favorite photos of El Malecon in Havana Cuba. The winds were crazy making this insane waves crash onto the street. I had to time it precisely so I could get this particular shot. It was a bit tough since it was so windy where I was at and it kept moving my trypod and lens. Here is the location where this was shot from.

Camera settings: 1/100 sec F3.5 ISO 100 70-200mm
