Interior Photographer in London
With interior design photography I always find the challenge is to capture in camera the interior as a combination of the interior designers visual plan along with the end viewers requirements and understanding of the space. As your interior photographer I need to create visually stunning imagery that is captivating but truthful, so heres how I do an interior photoshoot.
How I shoot Interior Photography
Walking into a new interior is incredibly exciting, the initial excitement from working out the angles to display the interiors at their best allows for the interior photographer to really get creative. I always start by going room to room, as the location naturally flows. This allows me to get a feeling of each room and their relation to each other for the overall interior design. I have been shooting interiors for nearly 20 years so this is all second nature and I know whats required instantly. The key for interior design photography is to show the rooms function, design and layout of the interior from the main angle and then I can get creative in choosing either quirky perspectives or angles that show the room in action. I typically shoot around waist height, depending on whether the floor or ceiling adds additional excitement to the image.
Interior Photographer and Composition
There is no one solution fits all, no location is the same so it is best to view the scene as a series of images. Taking some wide angle photos along with mid focal length to close up details. I spend time making minor adjustments in the scene and in the camera. So I’ll adjust my composition and framing along with the furniture and props in the scene. It is these finer details that make the shot perfect. You need to find the balance to make interior photography work well and effectively, so by adjusting the composition and knowing what can or cant be cropped out of the image to help tell the visual story. Only a specialist interior photographer can give you truly professional results.
Lighting Interior photography
Interior photographers mainly work with natural light. It is the perfect scenario when the natural light illuminates the scene at the right time of day. However this is not always possible so if need be I can either recreate natural light or create a flash light scene. I use both natural and artificial light to capture interiors. I will take a series of photos in all light conditions to give more options in the editing phase. Good lighting when combined with the process of composition and dressing the scene allow for a final image that is a mix of photographic skill and location understanding.
