Interior photography

posted on 24th of july, 2012

Well this article is for a newbies. If you have some information to fill up, I would be thankful.

So what you need to interior photography? First of all your camera :) Then it is helpful to have lens at about 10-20mm angle diapason. If the room or hall is quite big, then it could be enough to have at about 30mm angle lens. But if you want to make photos of ordinary home interior, 10-20mm angle diapason is really helpful.

I don't used any flash or other light apart from light that comes through the window and the bulbs light, that is a part of interior.

I used aperture from 11 to 16 so in some cases the time of taking photo were 10 or more seconds, that is why you must to have a tripod. If you want a tack sharp picture - use mirror lock up function of your camera. And obviously you must use the remote controller.

The basic composition rules is also needed to know if you want to make an attractive photo.

I take pictures in RAW file format, I like it because I can control exposition better.

That's it, good luck!

Thanks for sharing your experience. Were you using Auto White Balance or did it depend on the room?

Some pictures are great, but you should use flash sometimes (last picture for example).
And you can try to correct perspective in your pictures.
In photoshop 1. open picture
2. ctrl+a
4. press ctrl and use points in corners for corrections
5. enter

There are some beautiful pictures of interiors, this kind of images has a high sales potential. Excellent composition, but what I like best (and is more difficult to obtain) are the bright lights, particularly the first, second and fourth image!

great pictures, and helpful hints! I don't have a remote with my camera, but I actually set the timer for 2 seconds to give me enough time to press the button and get my hand off the camera. That has worked well for me!

We don't need strong light if we have tripod. The softer light is the better result I think. In some photos I used double exposition by post production. Used two exposition layers to avoid overexposed areas.

Useful piece of writing with good tips. So you also wait for a bright day with high clouds to get strong but diffuse light in through the windows? David
