Like any other photo session, estate photography requires thorough preparation and we have some tips for successful projects.
Horizon. What you certainly need during an interior shooting is a tripod. It allows you to avoid blurry pictures making photos look professional. It also helps to build the composition following rules of perspective.
Focus on the details. All details of interior pictured shall not be blurry. The photo looks so much better with emphasized details both on the foreground and background. This is something that makes your photograph look professional. Blurriness and poor lighting give away an amateur.
Vertical lines. Our brain represents a highly accurate system far better than modern technical systems. Sometimes we notice that vertical lines of the photo don’t really look that way. The thing is that a photograph looks flat while we are used to a three-dimensional world. We have the good news as well: we can put all the lines in the right position creating the presence effect.
Lighting. We can see objects and shapes thanks to the lighting. It’s no surprise that lighting has become a very powerful tool for professional photographers.
Comfort. There are different ways to add some cozy atmosphere to the photos of different premises. Our favorite one is “accidentally” leaving soft blanket and books in the living-room or food and dishes in the kitchen creating a feeling of human presence.
