Side by Side Photo Comparison!

This week I took photos of a house which had been photographed by someone else about a year ago. The homeowner asked me if I was the same one who had done the photos last year, and when I said no, she was SO relieved! She said she had hated those photos, and that she felt she could have taken better photos herself.  I promised her she'd be much happier with the photos this time around!  Meanwhile, I was able to pull 3 of the former photos to compare "apples to apples" with my own. Here's the result (make sure you scroll all the way down to see all of the comparisons!):

Previous photographer's photo of the entry foyer. At first glance, not terrible, but not up to my own standards!

THIS is mind! Not only is this photo much brighter and evenly lit, but with my ultra-wide-angle lens,
we certainly see a lot more of this foyer, from side to side as well as top to bottom!

Not as bright as I prefer, for sure. Also, this angle doesn't do this magnificently huge bedroom any justice.

I deliberately chose to show both windows, rather than one window and the door on the left. Doesn't this room look absolutely huge here?

Dark and dreary. Definitely not showing off this incredibly

Yes. This is the exact same bathroom, right down to the same items on the counter that were there when the other person photographed it a year ago.  Notice not only how nice and bright this photo is, but how much nicer the color is, and how much more of the room this lens includes.

Dark. Cramped.

I don't know about you, but hands down, I prefer this photo.
