I like to push the chimney on an angle and take a picture of it. Nick was always amazed that I took those kinds of pictures by myself but it can be done, it just takes a little practice. I always thought it was funny that he would add them at the end of the report and just comment something like, "need we really say anything more"! He is a really funny person, take my word for it. I had more fun performing inspections with him that with any job that I ever held in my life! ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)
I also learned to add something on the ground, such as a car, to give the picture depth just so the client knows that I was actually on the top of the roof and did not take the pictures from the eave with a ladder. I have to give the credit for that little trick to Nick.
Not too many people think about taking better pictures they are too concerned with the inspection. Sometimes you should just stop and take a look at the pictures you took, you would be amazed at how much you can improve them if you just stop and think, "how could I have made this a better picture?".
Is what got me on this kick was the number of recent posts inquiring about pictures and what camera's inspectors are using.
Many inspectors I am sure could use some help taking better picture so they can convey their message better. Maybe some of us can help them along the way.
