Shooting interiors can be a lot of fun but also an extremely difficult challenge. Most rooms aren’t designed to be photographed. They’re often laid out all wrong for it, there’s stuff in the way of the shot, the colours and patterns don’t really match and it can be tricky to find the right angle to shoot from. Even if all those things do fall into line, interior lighting isn’t usually geared toward photography. It’s designed to light the space for people within it.
There are some things over which you don’t have much control when photographing a room but there are plenty of things that you do. In this video from Becki and Chris, we learn a variety of tips and techniques that allow us to shoot interiors that we can be pleased with. Everything is covered from the gear to the composition with lots of great advice in between.
