LightFusion is a technique I use to blend a photo using the natural ambient light of a room and a photo using artificial lighting to make the finished photo as close to what the human eye sees as possible. It ensures rich and color accurate results every time and helps capture the views outside as well as inside. A camera is not capable of capturing everything the human eye can see so we help it along with some new technology and a little bit of computer magic.

Although HDR has it's applications we believe real estate photography is not one of them. HDR is a means of taking several photos of the same scene with varying exposure values to allow for the final photo to be evenly lit throughout the tonal range when blended together. This works but has a few side effects, the worst being muddied or inaccurate color rendering. This can also give a "fake" or "unrealistic" look to the final photo. (please see our about us page for examples). We use a similar procedure in that we take multiple photos of the same scene to even out the tonal range but that's where we go the extra mile to hand blend and color correct each frame to ensure crisp and accurate colors. We also use several off camera light sources to eliminate dark areas in a scene. You know, the dark room at the end of a hallway, or the dark corner of a large room. This is included in every package we offer, we want to make your listings and your brand look the best they can.
