Putting your best foot forward….I just have to shake my head…

Granted my fashion marketing background with experience styling photo shoots for NY showrooms and internet  businesses makes me particularly critical of some of the listing photography that I see in real estate – but come on! These are current photos of Greenwich listings that are floating out there on the world wide web – I rest my case.
REALLY CUTE HOUSE BUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER/LISTING AGENT COULD PERHAPS HAVE MOVED THE GARBAGE CANS TO THE LEFT…. AND DID THEY HAVE THE MODEL SIGN A RELEASE TO PUBLISH THIS PHOTO?

COULD THE PHOTOGRAPHER/LISTING AGENT HAVE JUST PLACED THESE ITEMS ELSEWHERE FOR THE PHOTO? 

STAGING THE TABLE (WHICH I ALWAYS FIND SO CORNY) BUT WITH A HANGING BASKET? SOLUTION – WHITE NAPKINS AND PLUCK ONE FLOWER AND PLACE IN THE CENTER OF EACH MAT – IF YOU’RE STILL TRYING TO BE A TASTEMAKER…OTHERWISE – LESS IS MORE

WHY BOTHER? BAD EXPOSURE AND COMPOSITION…PLASTIC SHOWER CURTAIN SHOVED IN THE CORNER….THIS IS WHERE A FLASH IS IMPORTANT – OTHERWISE YOU’RE TELLING THE WORLD THAT THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO LIGHT ENTERING THIS BATHROOM. CURTAIN SHOULD HAVE BEEN PULLED IN OTHER DIRECTION, AND HERE IS THE PLACE TO HANG A TOWEL ON THAT RACK TO CREATE SOME AMBIANCE IN THIS OTHERWISE DISMAL SHOT.

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING…..NOT SURE WHAT THIS PHOTO ACCOMPLISHES….IT LOOKS AS THOUGH THE AREA IS DRY TODAY, BUT MAYBE THAT WAS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE…ARE THOSE STAINS ON THE LEFT WALL? THIS WILL NOT HELP THIS LISTING
