Residential Real Estate Photography

is one of my favorite themes. I enjoy locating dramatic examples of architecture and finding the most profound way to convey the characteristics of the structure to my viewers. My wife is a retired Realtor (Ex-Ebby agent) and has been trying to get me to investigate Newman Village for some time. I finally listened... and this page is the project as it evolves. As time goes on, more will be added.

Some of these images will be "dynamic" - in that you can see the Before and After results of my technique. What's the difference? Quite a bit in most cases. When you mouse over each image you will see the "original" compared to the final result after I have processed the image to my standards. The result is high-definition imagery with enhanced texture, detail and colors not found in conventional photography.

If you've never been to Newman Village, and enjoy upscale living, you should come on out to Frisco and take a look. The overall design, attent

And now for some comparisons:

This is a custom, 6.500 sq. ft. home on a corner. The problem with a structure this large, is that it is difficult to find an aspect that really does it justice. I felt an ultra-wide angle lens from a low vantage point would yield the results I wanted, so this is the first time-exposure of this home at night. Following is a dynamic example of a "normal" daylight shot, compared to a High Definition shot taken at exactly the same time. As you roll your cursor over the next 2 images, you will see the enhanced version compared to an "ordinary" exposure.
Note the detail, texture and color differences between the versions.

Right across the street is a tree-lined path, which I thought especially attractve and used similar techniques to process the images. Each treatment yields slightly differentt results.

What follows are a series of daylight images, taken under far less-than desirable conditions on an overcast, dark day. I have processed these to create more texture, detail and color depth than what would normally be captured under these conditions.
