The ever rising demand of interior photographers has every person with a camera going for it. There are numerous demands of good interior photos for blogs, websites, and advertisements. You, therefore, need to provide consistent and quality work if you are to stand out from the crowd. To become the best interior photographer there is, here are a few tips to guide you:
The organization is everything.
Interior shooting requires some form of an organization before shooting commences. You just don’t go and start shooting right away. It would help to first create the image that you want to produce in your head. You can maybe add a few things in a room to give it to brighten up the room. Better still you may spice up the atmosphere by adding a few objects strategically. Also, you may consider the purpose of the pictures the client wants.
Be straight when shooting.
This can be achieved by ensuring that all the vertical lines in the interior image are going straight up and not converging at the top. To be sure that you are in the required position, use a tripod stand with a spirit level. This helps to ensure that all lines of the features e.g. doors, windows, and the frame are parallel.
Make use of good lighting.
For you to achieve high-quality pictures in interior photography, lighting is of the essence. Balance the light such that the shadows are not very dark and the brightness too is not too much. If the natural light is not enough, you can do with the lights available in a room, such as headlamps and fireplaces. You can also combine several lights and see which one is best suited.
Take pictures from a corner.
Taking pictures from the corner of a room gives you as wide a view of the room as possible. Squeeze yourself into a corner as much as possible. To get the best spot with good lighting, you can test on all the corners first. You can also set the camera on the corner on a stand to get a wider view. Remember that it’s all about how detailed your pictures are.
Successful interior photographers are patient. Don’t be frustrated if your first shots are not as impressive as the ones you see. Always seek professional help from an experienced photographer when faced with a problem.
