As observed, most single-family homes have a half bath on the house’s first floor. Sometimes, half baths could be spotted on the second floor or even in the basement.
As real-estate photographers, it is definitely essential to highlight the sink and the mirror rather than the toilet itself. However, this might impose a risk of stating what is already apparent.
Most of the time, the toilet will be opposite the sink, making the picture frame cramped. In doing this, make sure the lid is closed especially if it isn’t framed.
To get as much space as possible, make sure to place your camera at the fulcrum of the door as it is essential for half baths because they are small and hard to capture. Also, avoiding to include camera reflections in the mirror should always be noted since capturing half baths could be unavoidable.
So, to lessen the editors’ work, make sure your head and arms are out of the reflection, so they only have to edit the camera out in the photoshopping process.
In setting up your tripod, you have to ensure that the camera is placed high enough to capture the sink’s concavity. Afterward, in executing your flash shot, you need to make sure to lessen the power of the flash because half baths are usually smaller than most of the other rooms.
Meanwhile, there are several rules for the half baths, such as closing the toilet, placing the camera up to see the sink concavity, away from the camera reflection in the mirror, and utilizing the door’s fulcrum when needed can also be applicable. Just make sure to have your primary focus on sinks, counters, and baths.
When capturing larger full baths, you may need to take multiple shots if space is divided or segmented. For instance, it is a good idea to take a more artful vignette shot at the jacuzzi if it only shows partially in your primary bathroom shot. This shot will further stand out once it has been put through real estate image enhancement.
