Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #300

December 29th, 2008

12292008

One day I should go through all the 300 Horrible MLS Photos and see what percentage of them are bad bathroom shots. I’d be willing to bet at least half of them are. They are difficult because they are often the smallest rooms in the house and absolutely require a wide angle lens to shoot them.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #296

December 25th, 2008 – MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Every time you shoot a bathroom without a wide angle lens, somewhere a kitten is killed. Please, think of the kittens! It’s Christmas!

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #295

This beautiful looking shower and bathroom is another victim of a point-and-shoot camera that just can’t capture this kind of room properly. Always use a wide angle lens for bathrooms!

If you’re going to take a picture of a medicine cabinet, at least open it up and show us what kinds of medications and other potentially embarrassing items are in there 😉

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #290

December 19th, 2008

This awkward shot violates one of my main no-nos in real estate photography, and that is to never shoot a bathroom without a wide angle lens. They’re just not big enough to capture anything useful with a regular lens.  Here the REALTOR® has tried to use the mirror to capture more of the room, but in trying to keep him or herself out of the picture (bonus points for that!) it ends up looking really awkward.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #285

December 14th, 2008

Deja Vu?

Deja Vu?

Yesterday’s photo looked almost exactly like this! Perhaps close-up shots of towels and their reflection in a mirror is some sort of consumer trend that I’m not aware of. For the same reasons as yesterday, this photo is equally horrible.

So basically, the only interesting parts of this photo are those towels and that picture on the wall, none of which will likely be included with the home. If not for the mirror and towels, one might have trouble telling that this was a bathroom. Always use a wide angle lens for bathroom shots, or just avoid them, unless it’s a huge spa-like cavernous room.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #271

November 30th, 2008

Wow! If there was ever a violation of my bathroom rule (don’t shoot one without a wide angle lens) this would be it! Not only is it cluttered and blurry (possibly jpeg artifacts due to compression), but it looks like the REALTOR® also forgot to turn on some lights.

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath-cave

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath-cave

What, was the power out when they shot these photos? Not only does this photo violate my cardinal rule of shooting bathrooms sans wide-angle lens, but you can hardly see anything!

BONUS EDITION. Things got crazy yesterday and I didn’t post. So, today you get two tasty horrible photos.

Spoiled-For-Choice-Much?

Ayres Directive #1 violated again. This shot does nothing to show off the bathroom. And good God, how would you choose a necklace in the morning?! I’d be there all day 😉

Heloooooooooo down there!

Heloooooooooo down there!

I suspect we’ll be seeing more of these types of photos now that our MLS system allows vertically-oriented shots. Just ’cause it’s there doesn’t mean you have to use it.
