VRS013 - Creating Killer Vacation Rental Photos with Tyann Marcink
No items found.
Tyann Marcink is one very busy person. A mom to 3 boys, web designer, vacation rental owner and professional photographer, she balances a lot of activities and still had time to talk with me in episode 13 of The Vacation Rental Success Podcast.
I’m a mediocre photographer and rarely stray from automatic mode on my Canon T3i which is a complete waste of an extremely good camera.
I was scared of it. There are so many options and functions and I really know nothing very little about photography and how to use a camera. So, when I read Tyann’s book, Creating Killer Vacation Rental Photos I was surprised that getting a better photo is not that difficult once you have a basic understanding of what the different functions can do.
In our interview Tyann explains very simply and effectively:
Why the 12 inches behind the camera are more important than the camera itself
The 4 key features you need in your camera equipment
What size of lens works best
Why you need to ‘go low’ and use a tripod
The secrets of staging a kitchen
The best time of day to take your pictures (Hint..it’s not what you think)
Why you should avoid using flash
How to use different light settings in different situations
Why your thumbnail photo is so important
How to set light balance to lose the yellow tinge in a bathroom image
This image helps to explain what Tyann was indicating regarding white balance.
Tyann is giving away 3 copies of her book to listeners who comment on this post and let us know what they would like to change about their photographs.
