Sunset or Twilight Photo of White House with glowing windows and golfcart in front

Complexity of a Well-Executed Twilight Real Estate Photo (DIY How TO)

You only get ONE chance at a First Impression

This applies 100% to Real Estate or Rental property listings.  When potential buyers or renters are looking through long results for something that meets their criteria, you want your listing or rental property to STAND OUT! 

You can do this by being the most expensive, the cheapest, or having a unique and memorable first photo

Compare these two photos of the same property:

Not going to stand out in anyone’s mind other than perhaps the placement of the golf-cart.  (It required the Photographer to spend about 3 seconds shooting and 3 minutes editing and was shot on any moderately clear sunny day)

Sunset or Twilight Photo of White House with glowing windows and golfcart in front

This image required:

  • careful planning
  • arriving at just the right moment
  • having the patience and dedication to take several photos over time without moving the camera

It was the result of combining 9 separate photos into one image

  • (1) First one shot at 7:20 when sun was behind horizon but still light out 
  • (2) Another image shot at 8:05 when it was dark enough to see the lights on inside through the windows, and
  • (7) photos all taken while aiming a high-powered strobe at various parts of the house (to make sure that the white color stayed bright white) unlike this image, which is what most night photos look like:

(Also, a very nice image!)
Requires using either a long POLE to elevate the camera, or an aerial drone smooth enough to take a long-exposure shot allowing such clear visibility in very dark environments. 

BUT see how the house looks kind of blue/yellow instead of WHITE?


Here are the images required to keep color of the home accurate (fired separately while hand-holding a 200 Watt/second Godox Flash

So next time you ask your Real Estate photographer why twilight photos cost $150 extra, hopefully they’ll tell you it’s because we can only shoot ONE per day and only a few per week based on perfect weather conditions!

TMPartners | Nashville Interior & Architectural Photography

I was honored when TMPartners requested my services to capture and present their new office lighting for an award consideration! They are truly a class all their own, and having recently met their teams while documenting their grand-opening celebration, I knew that their offices and spaces would look even more elegant and inspiring when vacant than they did when filled with happy employees celebrating their success. To meet the requirements of the lighting contest, we were limited to a 60 second or less video + 10 images.

Lebanon TN Featured Property | 247 Canoe Branch Rd

The images portray the grandeur of this spectacular property – from it’s waterfront views, private park-like natural setting, and regal interior details, too much to possibly describe and will let the video and photo gallery speak for themselves

403 Bluestocking Hollow, Shelbyville TN | Leann Uselton – Bob Parks

I am HONORED to PHOTOGRAPH this breathtakingly gorgeous listing. It took 4 trips to the farm in all to capture and document the beauty that is this property.

Listing agent, Leann Uselton said: “Words are hard to find to describe this beauty. This 156 acre secluded farm hosts 4 homes, horse barn, cattle working facility, equipment shed and so many amenities, the list just can’t be described! This property is shown by appointment only! Must have proof of funds/or pre-approval letter prior to scheduled showing, and per sellers request, listing agent must be present at all times. Completely secluded! It is a must see!”
