These are a few photos from a recent real estate shoot near Oldtown, Idaho. I used Photomatix Pro, Photoshop and Lightroom to optimize these images. Camera is a Sony a6000 with Rokinon 10 mm lens.
The snowpack has diminished quite a bit, but it keeps snowing lightly almost every day. The waterfall was under a thick sheet of snow and ice for much of the winter, but it’s now our early morning view as we wake up with a cup of coffee.
Very nice sunset this evening, shot from the drone at 186 feet over the Pend Oreille River.
Looking forward to more blue skies and extended flying time.
I am working on techniques to improve my real estate photography. This photo is shot with the Sony a6000 and Rokinon 12mm lens, using RAW format. Exposure bracketing and HDR software are used to blend exposures from the bright outdoors to darker interior.
This learning process has been quite fun! The digital age has opened up many new avenues to enhance the quality of images and the communication of ideas. Real estate photography is poised to take great advantage of new digital techniques and equipment.
I have learned that real estate photography is far beyond point-and-shoot. Done properly, it sells a lifestyle, enabling the potential customer to feel the essence of the property. Perhaps equally important, it creates the link that connects agent with viewers. The viewer should be able to answer the question “What does this place offer for me and my family?” Good photography (and video) elicits emotion.

A highly effective Gmail Phishing Exploit is causing serious trouble for Gmail users. When the exploit is successful, the intruder gains access to all your email and can send additional exploits to all your contacts, your return address. So any critical info that you’ve ever sent by email can be used by the intruder.
“The way the attack works is that an attacker will send an email to your Gmail account. That email may come from someone you know who has had their account hacked using this technique. It may also include something that looks like an image of an attachment you recognize from the sender.
You click on the image, expecting Gmail to give you a preview of the attachment. Instead, a new tab opens up and you are prompted by Gmail to sign in again. You glance at the location bar and you see ‘accounts.google.com’ in there.
“The attackers log in to your account immediately once they get the credentials, and they use one of your actual attachments, along with one of your actual subject lines, and send it to people in your contact list.
For example, they went into one student’s account, pulled an attachment with an athletic team practice schedule, generated the screenshot, and then paired that with a subject line that was tangentially related, and emailed it to the other members of the athletic team.”
The attackers signing into your account happens very quickly. It may be automated or they may have a team standing by to process accounts as they are compromised.”
Though the location bar may contain ‘accounts.google.com’, if it begins with “data:text/html”, do not go any further…delete the original message. So even an email that is seemingly from a friend can contain this serious Gmail Phishinhg Exploit.

Be careful out there!
A fun time at the Beardmore Building! The Friends of West Bonner Library District held their annual auction on March 6, 2016.
I have found this local lumber products company to be very environmentally responsible and concerned with the sustainability of our forests.
They certainly do not fit in with the popular (mis)conception of the industry as being greedy and unconcerned with our environment.
I’ve just completed a website for Tri-Pro…check it out here.
