Back Yard & Exteriors
All right. So I'm walking up to the space for the first time to take photos and it's actually a different day. I'm wearing something different. And the reason is because in the other videos, I it was being, I was filming it and taking the photos earlier in the day and the backyard was just super bright and sunny with a lot of shadows that didn't look good. And so I decided I wanted to wait until later in the day to get these shots of the backyard where everything was in the shadows. So one of the features of the backyard, which I'm just gonna do the features first and then I'll move on to a big backyard shot is this deck right here. So I'm actually gonna move around the furniture just a little bit to make it look nice. But really, I just wanna capture this whole area, maybe even have this tree and the plants in it as well. All right. So I'm just gonna take a couple of shots from different angles still on the F eight IO 160 now I'm just backing up just a little bit to get some of the pl...
anter in the foreground. Yeah, this shot here looks pretty good with the, uh, tree in the foreground. We also have the decoration on the wall and you really get a sense of where you are with the back door, the sliding door of the master as well. Nice. All right. So with that shot, I'm just getting a raw shot. I'm not doing any sort of crazy lighting flash or anything. I'll do all my editing in post. So there's another feature over here, the sun is going down a little bit so it might end up looking like some nice golden hour sort of back lit set up. Let's go over there when I took this shot yesterday to test it out. I actually didn't even think about shooting it from this angle because the lighting was just atrocious, but having the shadows of the tree on the house itself creates a more dynamic image. And so I'm gonna get this shot from both this side looking this way and also looking the opposite way. So I'm trying to capture all the features, the garden boxes table over there, the little Pergola with the grapevine and I think that came out pretty good. You also notice I was probably shooting up above compared to down at regular height or down lower, just I think it made this look a little bit nicer. Now, this angle over here is really nice with the lighting. I don't wanna get any lens flares or anything artistic like that while I'm shooting these kind of real estate photos. So I am trying to get in the shadow of the tree that's blocking the sun. But from this angle, this looks really nice. So let's go here. I noticed that my shutter speed is at 1/16 of a second. So I'm gonna open up to an F 6.4 just so I'm not getting any, any shake in my shutter right here. I'm getting a little lens flare. So I'm just gonna have to cut that out trying to straighten out my lines and while shooting and I might just do one a little bit closer. More of the back patio itself with the back area. Hm. Maybe just the patio. This photo is nice because it shows the extension of the backyard which we don't see in any of the other photos. So it's nice to have that as well. I'll take one kind of like that from over here. I don't think that one's gonna work that well, but I think out of all of these, I liked the first one from that corner and then maybe the close up of the Pergola itself. Now I'm gonna back up and get a shot of the entire space as well as the garage. So now you have a sense of what the entire backyard looks like. I'm going to shoot from over here, try to get as much of it as possible. Again, trying to sort of set the scene for the customer, potential customer and give them a sense of what the space is like. So if I stand here, we get part of the deck as well as the garage back there, which is nice to see. I'm actually gonna even turn a little bit more. I'm gonna have to move the camera because I want to see these trees over here on the left side of frame. So that's a little bit almost the view that you're gonna see. I'm on a little bit of a wider lens. I am on the now, the sun is proving to be a little bit difficult right now. So I'm crouching down just so that I'm not getting any lens flare and I might take this in just a couple of minutes when the sun goes down even more so I can stand up and get a better shot. I'm gonna try one shot from over here and that's a shot that shows the garage as well as that back patio space, which will give a sense of how the spaces connect potentially put that idea of what someone could do with that space, the garage being in another option for an entertaining space. So I think overall, I got the features, I would probably take just a photo of the garage itself, but that's pretty self explanatory just from one angle, the whole garage. I have a another shot that I'll try to pop up here that I took one when the garage was well done. My office was set up with the entertainment space which will really sell that garage rather than an empty space as it is. Now that I'll show you, um, and other than that, hopefully these backyard shots look good to you and I'll be showing you how to I edit them later on in the course. But, uh for now have a good day and we'll see you in another lesson.
