Editing a photo in post-production with virtual staging

Virtual Staging Software ExampleAs a real estate photographer in Albuquerque I sometimes shoot out of town up in the Sandia mountain range. This was a listing the agent had not seen before I shot it and the window curtains had not been hung correctly. Of course neither the realtor nor home owner were there and I hiked over 2’ of snow.

I proceeded with the photography shoot and got the dreaded email from the broker saying that she wished the curtains had been different. This would have been a 3 hour fix dealing with the drive, shoot and post. (more…)


Loads of New Furniture Added to RTV Virtual Staging Software

The delivery truck has arrived and RTV’s Do-It-Yourself virtual house staging just got a very nice overhaul with a full load of new digitized furniture for you to use to “Virtually Stage” your rooms! DIY virtual staging technology is gaining traction in the real estate industry as broker’s look to technology to win listings. Furniture companies are beginning to make 3D samples on their sites. They generally show 3-4 views of a piece of furniture. Companies that have the software to sample and  complete the views can create a true 3D piece that can be rotated 360 degrees. Then lighting and shadows are added to give the furniture a realistic look.

What remains is the need for a platform that can straighten, calibrate rooms, position and rotate furniture within a picture. All this technical background on how virtual staging is just to give you a glimpse behind the scenes. Until recently the 3D models available on-line were limited sometimes to unrealistic looking furniture. That is all about to change!

Here at RTV, we will be adding 100’s of pieces of new digitized furniture over the next months to our powerful virtual staging software platform. We have already released many new pieces this week in several categories. Please let us know if there are specific categories or styles of furniture pieces that you would like to have added. As we are able to locate them from 3D online stores we will be adding them to the RTV Stager.

For those of you that don’t have your virtual staging account opened up yet, or if you have not visited the site in awhile please take a moment now to check it out today!

Lexington, SC Real Estate Photographer Achieves T4 Accreditation

T4 Photography Accreditation  It is a story we here at RTV have become familiar with. While shopping for a new home, Brian Hartley saw photos of property that were uninspiring and to put it plainly, amateur. These photos gave Brian the idea to start a real estate photography business, and he has been offering his services in the Lexington, SC market ever since. In a 2014 blog post, Realtor.com reported a study that showed homes listed with professional photography not only sold faster, but they also sold for more money.

Brian’s company Tourtheinside.com offers real estate agents, businesses, home owners and many others in his area, affordable, and easy access to professional real estate photography. Brian showcases the photographs he takes for his clients with the robust Fusion Virtual Tour System. Fusion provides seamless syndication of the virtual tours to appropriate third party sites such as Realtor.com, trulia, YouTube and many more. Fusion virtual tours are also easily posted onto social media sites like Facebook with the click of a button.

As a T4 program Brian has passed a rigorous process to ensure he is producing quality photography, and has received training to perform Google Streetview for Business shoots. We are confident that clients who contact Tourtheinside.com will receive the highest in quality and service in the industry.  If you are looking for photography in the Lexington, SC area give Brian a call at 803  348 7992. Congratulations on achieving T4 photography certification. We are proud to have you on our team!
