Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #219

October 9th, 2008

This REALTOR® did a decent job of capturing the whole room – good work! However, the composition is a little weird. It appears to be crooked, and getting that picture frame and light fixture in the shot is really distracting. I would also recommend that this type of picture be taken at an angle to give the room some depth.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #204

September 24th, 2008

Just a few feet to the left would have made this a pretty nice photo, showing attention to detail in the finishing of the banister, and how the traffic flow would work in this home.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #200

September 20th, 2008

Number 200! 200 days of Horrible MLS Photos! What a ride it’s been so far. As the days go by, more and more people tell me that they’ve seen the photos and are learning from them, which is the ultimate goal of all of this. I had an agent tell me the other day that his clients had seen the blog, and asked him to please make sure that his photos were perfect so they didn’t end up here!

I’m sure you can tell what I’m going to say about this one. This tight shot of the fireplace is crooked, and very poorly composed. The photo would look better shot wider, and at an angle, and by not cutting off the two chairs. Context is more important than content in many cases.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #192

September 12th, 2008

A Light At The End Of The Tunnel

A Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Besides being crooked and kind of grainy, this photo suffers from too much light coming in from the window in the other room. It’s fooling the camera’s light meter once again, underexposing this picture and making it dark. Opening those curtains on the right and/or turning on some lights would have helped immensely.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #188

September 8th, 2008

Crooked Clutter

Crooked Clutter

This REALTOR® must be busy. He or she was in such a hurry to shoot the pictures for this new listing that nearly every one was crooked, cluttered, and poorly composed.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #184

September 4th, 2008

Arr! Got Yer Sea Legs, Billy?!

Arr! Got Yer Sea Legs, Billy?!

This place is SO CLOSE to the water, that you can feel the motion of the ocean, and it’s hard to photograph the horizon straightly. At least the REALTOR® was consistent – all of the pictures on this listing were tilted this way.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day Labour Day Spectacular! #179, #180, and #181

Sept 1st, 2008

I apologize for the late postings, but my Labour Day weekend has been occupied with, well, labour. I’ve been kept busy with Projectzilla, which comes in the form of re-roofing my large workshop in the back yard. So, here are the latest horrible MLS Photos:

#179 - August 30th, 2008

#179 - August 30th, 2008

Did the REALTOR® interrupt the homeowner cooking dinner? There’s a pan on the stove and what looks like half of a meal on the right hand counter. Give the sellers some time to clean and de-clutter, it’s well worth the wait.

#180 - August 31st, 2008

#180 - August 31st, 2008

I bet there’s a dude laid out on the couch just out of the frame watching TV that the REALTOR® didn’t want to disturb.

#181 - September 1st, 2008

#181 - September 1st, 2008

What?! Chickens!? Hint: The listing this picture came from was not a farm or a rural acreage, but a house in the city. And this was the main photo for the property! I guess it comes with chickens.

Happy Labour Day everyone, I hope your weekend is going well.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #176

August 27th, 2008

With today’s digital cameras, this should never happen. The REALTOR® should be reviewing each photo as it is taken, making sure that they are level. Or, better still, I always take at least 3 or 4 of each shot, in case one sucks when reviewed on the large screen at home. For even better, more consistent results, use a tripod.

Horrible MLS Photo Of The Day #171

August 22nd, 2008

Blurry and crooked. Looks like a photo that might be taken after drinking too much!
