Unlike single exposure real estate photos, HDR images are made up of shots with the same angle but different shutter speeds. Therefore, HDR real estate photography editing will show you a unique, clear, detailed color scheme.
Based on more than 5 years of experience in real estate photo editing, we notice that edit HDR real estate photos by Photomatix Pro software is the best choice to help you create beautiful photos with simple usage.
Some important notes for HDR real estate photography
Firstly, you will need to use the tripod. A prerequisite for HDR is that all exposures must have the same aperture, sharpness and angle. Therefore, you have to know how many pics you need to shoot. Normally, real estate photographers will take from 3 to 5 exposures for HDR brackets. Taking too many will take more time and do not help you to have a nicer image.
Lens for HDR real estate photography
Shooting HDR needs to make a strong impression, so a super-wide-angle lens will bring out the strongest effect (you can refer to the Nikon 14-24mm for Nikon DX, Tokina 11-16, with a full-frame camera)
