Photoshopping Architecture: Before and After

December 06, 2014

Architecture and Real Estate Photography requires high end equipment and absolutely requires Photoshop. Buildings require attention to detail in a unique way. A building has a broad range of daylight and artificial light that spans a spectrum of light and dark. Point and shoot cameras are usually designed to make people look good with the touch of a button. Hopefully Photoshopping people is limited to a few retouches, whereas a building might need... a little more help to look good.   It's tough to find just the right time of day for the perfect lighting of a building. Instead, combining pictures into High Dynamic Range (HDR) Real Estate Photography can give amazing results with a few hour's work. HDR Architecture Photography in the Charlotte, NC area can mimic the naturally occurring "perfect" lighting that usually only lasts a few brief moments. Here is a before and after photo of what Photoshop can do for a church in the middle of New Mexico.

Before Photoshop, this image was great straight out of the camera.  It has potential to shine with Real Estate Photoshop techniques and corrections.
