Main Listing Photo

Magic-Time…, The featured photo above was not our first attempt at a picture for this listing.  Sometimes we will come back again and again to get it right.  

First Attempt At Main Listing Image

example of photo not up to our standards

There is nothing horrible about this picture but we knew we could do better. We took this photo in the late afternoon after the sun had set behind the hill.  We were trying to eliminate harsh shadows.

Always Give It Your Best – (No matter what it takes)

The lighting just was not up to our standards. 25 Buckskin Lane, Sedona AZ., sits east and west. The back of the home faces west.  My husband and I discussed the best time to take a picture. We knew if we got here at dawn, the sun would give us natural lighting to spotlight the front of the house.  

Back to the Top Picture

The next morning a weather front was rolling in from the southwest. We were able to capture the warm colors of “magic time” with a cloud front.  I wanted to seize the  rare minutes of low light with all the exterior and front interior lights on to help with the dramatic effect.  Time was of the essence to get the “money” shot! A bonus element was the reflection of the morning sun casting light from behind on the clouds in the Master bedroom window.
