I’ve been pleased an amazed at the way the Photography For Real Estate flickr group has been working. This last weekend we went over 300 members on the group. I want to publicly thank Aaron Leitz for proposing this idea and helping me get it started. Earlier this year I’d been looking for a way to be able to discuss photos when Aaron pointed out how to do it. It was just push I needed at just the right time.
I think it is an amazing opportunity for photographers just getting in this business as well as those more experienced. There is not many other places one can see such a high quality of real estate photography and at the same time be able to pose technical questions to the photographer. You may not realize it but there are many top professional real estate photographers participating in this forum.
There is an amazing amount to be learned from just studying the images and reading the posters technical comments. Like Aaron’s image above (where are the 4 strobes?) There’s even more to be learned by posting a few images for feedback. If you haven’t posted images yet don’t be bashful everyone is remarkably polite.
In addition, you can post questions on the discussion part of the group.
Thanks Aaron for a great idea!
BTW, check out Aaron’s new site redesign at www.aaronleitz.com. This is a good example of how to display and promote your work!
