Melbourne is an ideal location for selling property. Homeowners can work alongside photographers to help make their property look as good as possible. This can be done by utilising the surroundings of Melbourne itself.
Getting the natural landscape of the city within the pictures is recommended. This could include the bodies of water that surround the main residential areas. If the property is close to a park then it is worth getting some greenery in the shot. It is easier to include the landscape in pictures of the exterior than the interior. However, the photography can still show off the nature surrounding the property in interior pictures by utilising the windows.
One of the great things about Melbourne is that it tends to have great, bright natural light. Even during the winter months, the lighting tends to be good enough for property photography. It is rare for photographers to have to worry about it being too dark in this city.
It is wise to keep an eye on weather patterns when planning a shoot. Whilst lighting will not be an issue, the wrong type of weather can give off a gloomy tone to the property. It is best to shoot when the day is clear and sunny.
Sometimes the property will be close to the habitats of Australian wildlife. Photographers will need to consider whether it is a good or bad idea to include this wildlife in their pictures. Depending on the circumstances it may enhance or decrease the appeal of the property.
In contrast to wildlife, it is always a good idea to include famous Melbourne landmarks in the photos if the property is close to them. This could include the Queen Victoria market, Federation Square or the Royal Botanical Gardens.
