In todays competitive business and real estate markets one thing is certain that does shooting in HDR make a difference, or is it too artsy and cartoony? Normally one would think HDR would be instant on request but most come far short when asked about HDR or why they need it and if they need it at all. Recently this was a very topic, that HDR was not necessary to create great shots, in fact the suggestions where that normal photos could sell the item whether it be business related or real estate better with normal shots and balanced and correct camera settings. Well, we disagree and here are the professional reasons why.

First HDR images that are shot with a professional camera and processed by a professionally trained virtual tour photographer will have instant characteristics that are instantly noticeable over shots taken with regular digital or film cameras. Here are just a few, first the overall look is far better. Usually there will be a lot more detail to colors and focus, next you should see more saturation and tonal gradients. Lastly light, light, light. Whys is light so important or not? With HDR it does not have to rely on light per say like that used in flash etc instead it relies on interior lights at any given location. Once all the elements are combined, the shots are taken and processed, you lastly should always see a perfect balance of light from the outside and the interior of the location, again something you will not get with a conventional camera, if so it’s “a loooooot” of work!

Here at Mirage Virtual Tours we use the latest and best virtual tour technology when it comes to shooting anything virtual tour related. Our HDR Cameras and lenses are the best. Our virtual tour software for processing your professional HDR images and creating either an HDR Gallery, HDR V-Slide tour or HDR 360 virtual tour stand out amongst the best in the 360 virtual tour industry.

A curious thing was the newness even to our organization regarding the HDR technology. In fact I can recall friends of mine that are very success driven realtors that have been shooting their own shots now for years..until now. Once they saw the HDR images we create, they started rethinking who their customers were, what they where doing and why they where doing it!

Now they are sold on HDR and we know you will too once you see the difference. We invite you to explore the samples of HDR images on our site here: http://www.miragevirtualtours.com/hdr-gallery and see for yourself the true and amazing quality and detail that HDR delivers to the final projects.
