8 Key Strategies for Effective Photography Part 2
5. When possible use a wide angle lens.
This type of lens will allow you to bring more of the room into the picture and produce an interesting shot. For exterior shots a wide lens allows you to get closer to the facade without cutting the ends of the house out of the picture. Never take a shot that does not include the entire facade of the house.

6. When possible use a tripod.
Using a tripod forces the photographer to think more about composition and allows the use of slower shutter speeds for shots with existing light. Using a tripod allows the camera to be placed at better angles, such as in a tight corner, or up high shooting down both produce more aesthetic, interesting photos.
|Yeah, this guy wishes he were using a tripod.|
- Zoom in on the details.
Include close up shots of fine woodwork, high end fixtures, or beautiful surfaces such as granite, tile or marble. These shots complete the image of quality you are trying to portray of your listing.

8. Consider photo editing software to touch up your photographs before posting.
There are many free, and affordable software packages that will allow you to adjust exposure, crop your image, or adjust color saturation and hue for a more pleasing picture.
