There is another beautiful part of the home that needs quite good shots - the backyard. It often goes unnoticed at times, but adding some backyard photos on the listing adds value to the property.
Before starting the photoshoot, instruct the photographer to make the backyard look big and spacious. Remember that most backyards vary in layout and landscape design, so it is best to maximize the shots. Still, if a property has substantial space for the lawn space, the photographer must gather at least two or three different angles to exhibit the backyard from varying viewpoints.
The best backyard photo is achieved by getting a shot using a two-point perspective, looking from the house deck or patio area into the yard. Another is by shooting from the corner of the yard to get the most parts of the space fit into the frame.
As part of the aesthetics, you need to consider the proper lighting, too, when shooting the backyard. Remember, it is an outdoor shot, so having artificial lights are unlikely. However, there is plenty of natural lighting available from the sun to sustain the needed amount of light while shooting the place, so make use of it.
Moreover, try adding fixtures and furniture in the yard to make it look more enticing. There is nothing wrong with photographing a bare backyard, but it is a plus to see it looking good and not barren. If you do not have time to set up the place with real furniture, try utilizing virtual staging to transform the shots into more compelling images.
At the same time, this idea will help prospective buyers envision spending time in the yard, either with family or friends while relaxing. In the end, all you need to do as the owner or realtor is to have a firm plan on how you want your backyard photos to look in the listing. It is the job of the photographer and editors to make the shots more pleasing to the eyes.
