Fotos On The Fly: The view from the front porch…

Grand Entry from the balcony

Real Estate Photography – Making A Grand Entrance – Part 1

Some homes have amazing entry areas while others have spectacular architectural features in spite of a rather uninspiring entry. This is a case of "when you've got it, flaunt it!" An impressive entry should always be photographed with care.
