Photographing interiors involves working within a confined space.Interior images should be bright, with perfect exposure and have fresh vibrant colours. This is the standard used by publishers all over the world. To achieve this the photographer must be able to control these elements and have a very good understanding of light.
Look out for lines that will lead to the focal point of your image. By leading with lines into the main part of the scene you will draw observers into your photograph. These lines don’t have to be straight. They can be a row of seats or interesting converging vertical objects.
Try to frame your scene with some of the elements in the room. This will focus attention on the main part of the picture.
Tiles on the floor and walls can be very handy as composition when photographing a room - use the tiles to focus attention on the focal point of the room.
Sometimes framed pictures hanging on walls will appear distorted so it is best not to include them. If you are photographing someone’s home ask the owner before you move items.
Good interior images are not easy to take but the rewards are great if you can master the trade. If you are unsure of the standard, buy some of the magazines that use these images. Publishers pay fine prices for well exposed, good quality indoor images.
