Yesterday I made the trip down to Harrodsburg, Ky to photograph a listing for a client. It’s such a beautiful drive on the Bluegrass Pkwy and down Highway 127 into Harrodsburg. This listing is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath 1,549 square foot single-family home located at 208 Harrods Trace. The solid 15 minutes it took the train to pass through downtown at the corner of 127 and Factory Street gave me a little time to really soak in and appreciate the feeling you get in a small town. Once I arrived, the shoot went about as smoothly as it could, I stuck to the standard flash photography and stayed away from automatic bracketing this time. Insert the sun starting to go down, spouse getting home from work and hungry chidren…. it was important to work quickly and respect the homeowner’s schedule. Post-editing last night I was pleased with the results, a reminder that with proper use of lighting and flash, correct camera settings and the right perspective sometimes simplicity is the best way. It’s not about the subject. Not every home I photograph will be a 8,000 sqaure ft mansion with 30′ vaulted ceilings and hanging glass chandeliers. The job isn’t to make a house look bigger or better, the job is to capture what’s there the best way possible and provide house hunters with quality clear and accurate photographs. There’s a house out there for everyone, I want to help people looking online find the right one.
