Taking the perfect shot

May 30th 2018

You know that we LOVE receiving photos of your fantastic Residor installations as it gives us a real insight to the fantastic work being completed by our dedicated installers.

We want to make sure that you’re capturing the perfect shot  to show off your work, so we have noted a few simple tips to get you started.

1.Always be prepared

Many people think great photography requires expensive equipment but nowadays the camera on your phone will do just as good of a job. So it’s important to make sure you’ve always got this to hand.

 2.Ask permission

Always ensure you ask the homeowners permission before you start snapping away at their newly installed Residor, you’ll probably find they’ll be honoured that you have asked them.

3.Prepare your surroundings

Make sure you clear away any tools or equipment, as you want the area around the door to look presentable and professional.

4.Keep it steady

The way that you hold your camera will make a difference in the quality of your shots, so it’s important to keep it steady to avoid any blurry pictures.

If you having a hard time keeping your camera steady, then you may find it helpful to use a tripod.  You don’t need to spend a fortune either as they can be picked up online for a relatively small cost.

5.Lighting is key

Before taking the photo, take a look around you and determine which direction the light is coming from and use this to your advantage!

Top tip: Try to avoid between the hours of 11am – 1pm as this is when the sun is at its highest, which can cause harsh shadows on photographs.

6.Before and after

Try to get a before and after shot to show off the overall transformation.  These are great shots as they show potential customers what a difference a new door can make.

7.Zoom it in….

It is great to see some close up shots of the finished installation, these help to show the key details of the product and highlight the beautiful glass and accessories.

8.Keep snapping away!

Get a good selection of shots which help to show off your fantastic work, the more photos you take gives you more of a chance of grabbing a great shot.

Finally make sure you have fun with it! Get some quirky angled shots and show off your exceptional work.

Keep sending your photos through to us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and we will look forward to seeing them!! #HAPPYSNAPPING
