Stainless steel appliances are in. I might see two or three non-stainless steel appliances in a year of photographing homes for real estate agents. The style of RE photography I like to create requires expert use of off camera lights. Often up to 4 of them. To feature the stainless steel in a kitchen, to make that surface come alive, I need to employ a few tricks and be very careful to not capture either my lights or myself in the oven door glass. My main trick, once again, is to control my camera remotely. Without that technology I could not get these images looking they way they do.
