Advantages for buyers
Dusk and twilight photography showcase the best features of a property, as well as its natural beauty. Aesthetically pleasing photos are crucial to attracting new buyers. These photos will also allow prospective buyers to get an accurate idea of what the property looks like during daylight hours without having to visit it in person. Buyers may also be more inclined to purchase a home when they can visualize themselves living there because photographs help create emotional ties with the property through scenic shots and special memories associated with that place.
Advantages for sellers
Dusk and twilight are ideal times to shoot real estate listings because they offer a cinematic, soft light that's flattering to the environment. These low-light situations allow for more of the scene to be in focus, which helps buyers envision themselves living in the space. Plus, it's an opportunity to take photos without harsh shadows or glare. The color palette shifts from warm oranges and yellows to cool blues and purples, making for rich images with deep colors. Finally, since the sun sets quickly at this time of day, there's less chance you'll need to edit any bright spots out.
Best times of day and time of year to capture these photos
Some of the best times to take dusk or twilight photos are during the months of September and October. These months have longer hours of daylight which makes it easier to capture these types of photos. In addition, you'll want to be sure that there are no clouds in the sky so that the sky can stay dark, but not too dark because you don't want to lose all detail in your shots. For this reason, a camera with a good-quality sensor (such as a DSLR) is necessary, your twilight/dusk photographer will also use a tripod to keep the camera steady when taking long exposures on manual settings.
