What is HDR Photography?
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is the process of taking multiple photographs at different exposures (light levels/brightness). Then using a software to merge those images together to form one exposure that would be similar to the way the eye sees. This is the most commonly used style for real estate.
Here are some example exposures that would be turned into an HDR image.
Basic HDR Image (What Our Competitors Return)
At Real Estate Exposures, we take pride in our images. Below you will see a basic HDR image that has been processed to merge the files together. This is the type of image our competitors return to their clients. We believe that this doesn’t show the true beauty and dynamics of a house.
Real Estate Exposures’ Premium HDR Processing
Here is an example of our processing — it takes the basic HDR image and improves upon it. It is a proprietary editing that we have developed to offer our customers the highest level of service and beauty!
Our Proprietary Editing Process Ensures:
– More accurate and natural colors
– More accurate whites in ceilings, moldings, doors, etc.
– Window Masking to ensure super clear windows
– Perspective Correction (making sure lines are straight)
– Wide angle lens distortion correction (no curved lines at the edges of images)
– Editing a blue sky in all exterior photos when not a sunny day (great for those rainy days!)
Example of before/after blue sky replacement:

Notice the difference in quality of colors and whites, the clarity of windows, and perspective correction!
New Service – Digital Twilight Conversions
We can now take any daytime image and convert it to a twilight image. This saves money on getting those awesome twilight photos since we don’t have to come shoot the property at sunset and charge another full shoot fee. These images are only $19 for the first and $10 each additional per property. A great way to make your front photo stand out when buyers are searching hundreds of listings online.
Matterport 3D Virtual Tours
With Matterport 3D Virtual Tours, real estate agents can gain a competitive advantage. Now you can bring the open house to out of town buyers! With the dollhouse and floor plan features of Matterport tours, a buyer feels like they are walking through the home. These 3D tours are truly one of a kind and immersive!
