Kitchen designer, furniture or decorative objects manufacturer, real estate agency, architect, renovation company or interior decorator: you need to showcase your products in neat and well worked out atmospheres, or you have goods or references to highlight. Discover our checklist for successful interior photos.
THE CHECKLIST FOR YOUR DECORATIVE PHOTOS
1. Take the widest possible angle of view in order to valorize the volume of the room. Even small spaces can be to their advantage with a wide angle shot. Moreover, it allows you to have a global vision of the subject you are presenting (whether it is furniture or the room of an apartment for sale).
2. The storage and cleanliness of the space must be impeccable. Everything in the field must be perfectly sharp, so that the eye is not attracted by a particular object but by the atmosphere of the room.
3. Choosing the right moment to photograph your interior: a favourable weather is a guarantee of success for your photos. If the sun is not there, it is sometimes better to postpone the shooting.
4. The staging is important: a magazine on the coffee table, a cup of coffee on the counter, and you bring your decor to life! You can install different atmospheres depending on the objects in the photograph. Depending on the context, the presence of people brings a plus, especially for catalogue photos.
5. Post-production treatment is often necessary to improve exposure and contrast. Thus, after the preparation of the set and the shooting, the work is not yet finished!
