10 tips for interior photography
1 Set goals . What is the purpose of the pictures, which / what emotions should they convey? Is there any special product, interior detail or furniture that should be seen more prominent than other items and should the image convey a certain feeling? By setting goals for photography, you also have a clear idea of what you want to achieve with the images.
2 Location . Once you have selected the end goal for the photo shoot, it is time to select the location for the photo shoot. Do you have a clear idea of WHAT you want to achieve with the photography shoot but are unsure of which place is most suitable? Then a hot tip is to ask a friend or go out on your social media and ask if anyone there has any tips on locations that are suitable for your particular photography shoot.
By place / location I mean a house with a special kind of kitchen, living room, light entry or a place that has special details that you want. Just like when you shoot outdoors or in the studio, it is important to keep track of things like where the light comes in and at what time of day the light is in a certain way. There are smart apps for the phone that show how the light falls towards a specific geographical location depending on the time of day. One of these is called “TPE App” and you can find it here: https://www.photoephemeris.com/
3 Composition . The composition in the picture is often very important. Of course, there are certain types of composition that are more or less eye catching, such as the so-called rule of thirds, which is a classic "photo rule". It is more of a guide, than a rule, that shows how to place the subject in the image to achieve a feeling.
Briefly explained, you use the rule of thirds in image composition to create a depth in the image by dividing the imaginary image into three parts and placing the subject on the border between the middle part and the edge part, either to the right or left of the middle which you can see example below.
