So it’s gotten to the point now where I’m shooting properties for a second time. Not a re-shoot, but a new/different sale of a property. I’m sure many real estate photogs have been in this position many times. As many creatives do, I look back on my previous work and just cringe, but it indicates how far I’ve come and potentially how much further I have to go. Anyway, when it dawns on me that I’ll be shooting the same property, I only look back on previous images to remind myself of the property – NOT to replicate the shots I did before. In my opinion, I’ve improved – and not only in quality of work, but in getting a sense of the property and what shots are important. By the way, thanks for reading this far. The first image was shot back in 2016 – back when I thought I knew everything and was on a roll (bahahahahahahaha…). The second image was shot just yesterday. I’m amazed at not only how far I’ve come, but at how some folks have a knack for home improvements. The space was completely different – the transformation was incredible. I can’t wait to look back on the new image in 3 years and think, “holy crap, what the heck was I thinking?!”
I’m a big gear head. Ask anybody who knows me. A few years ago it was drones, but that’s just not enough anymore (at least in terms what my gear can do for me). There’s always going to be the creative intuition that one has to have to separate themselves from competition and at that point EQUIPMENT DOESN’T MATTER. The motivating factor behind getting new gear should be to take advantage of features/capabilities that your current gear can’t provide. Well, absolutely none of my gear could do this! I’m just gonna leave it there and let it speak for itself.
