Professional interior photography
Successful interior images are not only the result of technique or technology: they depend as much on the taste and creativity of the photographer.
Composition is really important in interiors. It’s not just about describing the space but also letting you enter that space and touch the surfaces.
The Hero Shoot
This is the main, single photo that will present the room on a website or in a brochure. Composition, lighting and styling must be perfect. A hero shot is usually wide-angle and will include as much of the room as possible without going to extreme (focal) lengths.The angle that shows the most important elements in terms of architecture or furniture, and that offers the best lighting. For small rooms there’s probably only one hero shot worth taking. For larger spaces there might be two or even three.
Any interesting surfaces, objects or design elements. Great chance to play with the natural light or with architectural features like doorways, staircases and windows.
It’s nice to help viewers create a kind of mental map of your location you’re photographing. To do this include a series of pictures that lead the viewer through the space. And in each picture I’ll position an element that appears again in a following image, like a point of reference. Elements like tables and doors are also helpful in mapping out a space.
