I was wondering if you or anyone else had any tips on the best way to remove the orange color cast from windows and porch lights during a twilight shoot? I've tried to desaturate them and also turning my white balance to tungsten but I can't get it to look the way I want. Getting true color for this shot has somehow eluded me.
The upper twilight version literally made my wife and me around $18,000 (3% of a $600k listing). Here is the story: To my dismay, Mrs seller did not like the shot because it was "too blue." She insisted that I use the daylight version of this shot for her flyer, so I did. However, I used the "too blue" version above on the MLS listing, our just listed postcards and put a large version of it on my wife's website. While this home was on the market, we had a new listing customer call and say, "We want you to list our home and market it with a photo like the one on your website." We listed and sold the callers home for $600,000.
The bottom line is that a dramatic twilight shot can be very valuable for a listing agent though some may think they are too dramatic. Dramatic twilight shots grab viewers attention and get them to look at the rest of the photos. They also get listing agents more listings. Use this fact in your marketing to listing agents.
