Venturing into Real Estate Photography with

Living in the Bay Area with one of the highest housing markets in the world, I’ve decided to try out a new type of photography; real estate photography. Photography has always been a passion and one of my competitive advantage and thus made sense to try out something I like but in a different field.

Initially I thought how hard could this be? Its not like a wedding where there bunch of people moving around and you stand on your feet all day. But I was wrong, there is a learning curve such as learning to shoot a 3D space instead of individuals where shadows create a person’s look. Instead, the absence of contrasty shadows is often required to highlight the room itself. I thus took time to learn all about the techniques of HDR, interior photography and the real estate listing process. I’ve set out to make my MVP, and acquired a new lens, the Canon 17-40mm F/4 L.

I’ve attempted a few shoots and so far, I like it. It definitively does not have the stress levels of weddings but one doesn’t earn nearly as much per jobs.

I want to try this out further, my initial capital investment isn’t much and the photography knowledge is reusable in the future. Please send me any tips/points and refer me to your real estate agents 🙂

Wedding Shoot: Darren and Christina

November 2, 2013 – I had the pleasure to photograph for couple hours,  my first real Hong Kong wedding, the wonderful day for Darren and Christina. Darren is a good friend that I met when I first arrived in Hong Kong. It was held in The Air in Tsim Sha Tsui and I like the simplicity of the wedding. They opted to go away from a traditional wedding to a more sweet and youthful theme and made it memorable. Congratulations Darren and Christina.
