When we talk about ‘hero shots’, we talk about that one photo that will quickly grab someone’s attention. Whether searching online, scanning the real estate newspaper lift out or looking at listings advertised in an agency window, if must give an amazing first impression.

So, what is so great about twilight photography?

Look at the two pictures below and consider which one grabs your attention first.

We take an artistic approach when creating twilight images

For example, in the image below you see beautiful, warm light coming down the stairs. This was something we artificially created using specialised tools and techniques because we wanted to give a ‘welcoming’ feel to this beautiful family home.

To us, creating a twilight image is just like creating a piece of art. It takes time, technique and skill.

You need the right type of house to create an eye-catching twilight image

Not every home is ideal for a twilight shoot. Homes with dark brick or hidden by trees and plants do not always work very well.

Your home needs to have a lot of light coming from the front (i.e. large windows). We also need to be able to open or remove any curtains or blinds blocking the window as the idea of a twilight is being able to see into the home.
