Interior Photography

Interior Photography is a booming branch of the photography industry. Well taken pictures are always being sought after, with the real estate and the hospitality industries making full use of the benefits professional interior photos bring. Experts in this field of photography have some strategies they use to ensure their photos stand out where others may seem more on the lackluster side. One important step is to ensure that the space to be photographed is thoroughly clean. Starting off with a clean room is imperative. It needs to be spotless not just in terms of dust and dirt, but also in terms of removing unnecessary, distracting clutter. It takes a trained eye to spot all those small, everyday items that we tend to have laying around (remotes, keys, etc.) so that they don’t get caught in the final shot. A few careful chosen accent pieces is all that is really needed – a beautifully arranged vase on a table or a throw pillow with an interesting design placed causally on a sofa, will do nicely. Properly lighting the space is also an integral part of making the photoshoot a success. Natural light has a fresh quality to it that comes off beautifully in photographs. If it is insufficient, however, turning on all the lights in the space may help drive unwanted shadows and dark areas away. Very often, Interior Photography has as much to do with the view outside a window or door as it does with images of the actual room. It is not unusual for less experienced photographers to forget this fact and end up neglecting what is often a room’s most notable feature – the view of outside. That kind of awesome and inviting view is shown in the accompanying photo. It is the view from the lobby at The Monte Carlo Club on Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Outside those doors is access to a 5 and a half mile stretch of natural beach for guests to go out and enjoy!
