Residential Photography- how do I do it?
Seeing all a room has to offer is exceptionally important but character and style has relevance too, with this in mind i avoid shooting wider than 24mm as less than this focal length results in imagery that distorts a sense of the reality. A number of my clients have requested books made of my work, these have included atmospheric imagery; some of which may appear within these portfolios. I believe they add a sense of texture which can be appealing and gentler on the eye.
All captivating photography revolves around symmetry, and this appears to be relevant more in architectural and interior photography than any other category. Positioning of the camera is absolutely critical and a shift to the slightest degree can have a substantial impact.
The images below have been taken with a Canon 5D mk 2, Canon TS-E 24mm f3.5L Mk II Lens, Canon TS-E 45mm f/2.8 and in places a Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM. Most are taken with natural light, some bracketed, some lit; all factors are variable according to requirement, time, budget, environment.
