That's Rather Hideous: Photography 101

New, 4 comments

That's Rather Hideous is the report filed by Curbed SF's own interior design vice squad. Spot an offender? File a complaint— or a compliment. Witness protection guaranteed. Note: As we don't employ a company sketch artist, digital photos are always appreciated.

And now a brief, two-part lesson on how not to photograph a bedroom for a real estate listing. Lesson One: Please remove the dead body prior to photographing the bed. At least the owners had the courtesy to pull the sheet up, but this photo of 4312 Geary Street #301 looks like a CSI-worthy crime scene. Lesson 2: A dirty, bare mattress on the floor of a grimy attic, like the above photo of 527 Brunswick Street, can make even a somewhat respectable-looking home look like a crack house. Not well played, folks.
