I have found my mission in life and it is to make sure all the walls in real estate marketing photos do not have converging verticals!
There is something about making walls straight that is hard for photographers to get. Apparently, it just isn’t obvious that walls like the ones above detract from an image. I see many real estate photographers out there charging Realtors to shoot property photos that think it’s not a big deal to produce photos with converging verticals and color casts like the photo above. They are wrong. It is a big deal.
This is the same photo with the distractions removed in Lightroom and Photoshop.
I think one of the reasons converging verticals and color casts are not fixed in property photos is that some photographers are not familiar with or are opposed to post processing photos. These problems are quite easy to fix when post processing an image.
The fact is, if you are going to produce high quality images you MUST do post processing.
