House shoot for a friend

This week I did a favor for a friend and took some photos of an apartment he helps to let out. I enjoyed it immensely playing around with lighting and angles. Most of the pictures were more practical to depict the apartment as life like as possible but I managed to take a few more artistic, visually pleasing shots too. Sometimes it feels good to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself with a new topic.

Tips:

  1. Your poppy flash on top of the camera is really not your friend causing weird shadows, so whenever you can, try to go without it.
  2. Be aware that you generally expose for the inside or the outside and how to still get good results by shooting RAW and using a good editing software to correct your pictures (my choice is Adobe Lightroom)!
  3. Consider angles and lines carefully while composing your pictures! Use the third lines not just the middle of the frame!
  4. Get familiar with your lenses and know their weaknesses, especially how much distortion they have at different focal lengths.
  5. Know for what reason you’re taking pictures of the interior and exterior of a building and take your pictures with that in mind. They will look very different when they are for an informative advert or artistic reasons.
