5 Tips for great interior photography

Attention, professionalism, and scene care are essential elements in taking excellent real estate photography that enhances both the qualities of the property and the skills and creativity of the person who took it. Here are 5 useful tips that can help you make a difference:

1. Writing with light

Photography, as the word itself says, means "writing with light," and a good photographer knows how to make the most of the great power of natural light. For this reason, before taking photographs, it is advisable to make sure that there is a sunny day and that the time of day is appropriate. Early mornings and afternoons ensure even lighting and softer shadows. It is also essential to open all shutters or blinds in such a way as to let in as much natural light as possible.

2. WIDE ANGLE: word to the spaces

Good interior photography is one that lets spaces do the talking. Among the tools at the photographer's disposal is the wide-angle lens, which is capable of "enlarging" the scene and helping to render an idea of spaciousness even for small rooms. To take full advantage of the depth of field and the increased shooting angle, the plane on which the camera is resting must be horizontal. Some tripod models have a built-in spirit level simplifying the correction work. When absent, this can be remedied with the external spirit level.

3. Less is more

Very often, the difference between a good photo and a mediocre shot is in the work of "sweeping" the frame. Attention to detail is accompanied by the selection of the elements in the scene. The rule is: few objects and well placed, to return to the viewer an idea of cleanliness and order. A "dry" scene must be carefully constructed. Before proceeding with the shots, it is a must to remove personal items and sort what will make up the set. Ban crumpled sheets, toothbrushes, and slippers. Theessentials must be visible to the eyes.

4. Beauty is in the DETAILS

Essentiality rhymes with originality. A minimalist scene does not prevent us from adding a touch of distinctiveness and uniqueness to the property by using elements that catch the viewer's attention on eye-catching details and colors. A designer object, a lush plant on a white wall, and distinctive furniture can give the property character and style.

5. IN and OUT.

The house is associated with concepts such as closed, intimate, interior. What about balconies, terraces, facades, and all those interstitial spaces that connect the inside with the outside? Outdoor spaces are secondary but equally important elements that help potential buyers contextualize the property and guide their choice.
