At most times, agents seek to include a couple of exterior photos that were taken during the dust, typically in the afternoon. This is because of the orange hue emitted by the property lights, which romantically compliment the blue lighting that envelopes the interior properties’ layout.
This process that makes this shot predominantly stand out from the rest is called the twilight shot. From its name “twilight,” twilight shots are forms of photographs that are usually taken after sunset, now including the sun’s natural glow through the property as it sets.
For you to achieve good takes when shooting twilight shots, the ideal lighting for it is as early as ten minutes after sunset but not later than 20 minutes after it.
In doing this, you must also consider and depend on the time of the year, which makes this shot precious and at the same time tricky. Sometimes executing good twilight shots is challenging because the weather and climate of that given year can be predictable, so it’s advisable to plan.
You don’t want your photograph to look plain and simple when taking your twilight shots. So, for you to avoid commonplace twilight shots, make sure that you do not take your twilight shot too early at dusk.
When we compare twilight photos to daytime images, twilight pictures don’t differ from the daytime shots except that you will need to leave the shutter open for a longer time. Also, you should be extra cautious and stabilize the camera properly. Usually, photographers take shots during the regular daytime photos and then return to the property later in the day to shoot the twilight ones.
When you do this, always make sure the agent or the homeowner either leaves all of the interior and exterior lights to highlight the house.
Otherwise, if you are told to do so, you must follow the given instructions and permissions. You are doing this to arrive early and have the fixtures and lights fixed following your liking and composition in mind.
