Real estate and model home photography are similar in the way that both involve photographing houses, but the similarities stop there. Real estate photography is typically used on a flier and the MLS for a short period till the house sells. On high end homes, the images may be used in some publications, but once the house sells, the images are typically never used again. Model home photography is used for a much longer period of time to attract perspective buyers to a new community to help sell an entire track of homes. Typically taking multiple days of shooting, model home photography is much more involved.
For the best interior images, all light fixtures should have matching bulbs (LED, Fluorescent or tungsten). Different types of light bulbs put off different color light. Typically shooting at times when direct light is not coming through the windows is best.
