If it wasn’t for the property taxes and the electric bills I think I’d buy this house as a weekender or a starter home. It can be your for only $1,285,000. It was fun as a Coto De Caza real estate photographer being commissioned to photograph this stylish residence. You’d think the first image {top right} was the hardest to shoot. But it wasn’t. It was the most fun. The hardest real estate photography image to shoot was the living room below. Read on to find out why.

Dark wood is always a challenge to shoot. Put that together with a spiral wooden staircase and wooden floors and its love at first sight. To pull off this shoot four speedlights were used. One was placed on the floor in the entry way, first level camera left. A second bouncing off the curved wall behind me to fill in the far wall. Third speedlight was in a 60″ bounce umbrella under the stairway first level camera right to fill in the foreground. And the last one was in the dining room hiding behind the pillar in view camera right. A Canon 16mm-35mm 2.8 was used at ISO 400 f7.1

How The Kitchen Is Lit: Outside the window a 40″ silver bounce umbrella pointing towards the range. A speedlight on the ground between the island and the range bouncing off the island cabinets at about 1/32 manual power hitting back at the range to light the cabinets. Another speedlight left side of island just out of sight bouncing off the island cabinets and back at the cabinets between the range and fridge. And a 60″ umbrella umbrella behind me, camera right to illuminate the island and foreground. One speed light in the dinning room {far end of image} in a 20″ bounce umbrella. In total 5 speed lights were used to create this shot. Set up time about 10-15 minutes. All post completed in Adobe Lightroom 5.

This was the hardest room to shoot in this Coto De Caza home. The fact there there is a television {highly reflective} with dark wooden cabinetry surrounding it, dark wood floor and a very hallway with dark tile, a dark wood door and the end all posed a challenge. Four speedlights, a few umbrellas and a bit allot of finesse bouncing the lights of the walls did the trick.
