Images Created Carefully
Interior designers work very hard at making spaces extraordinary. They pour enormous amount of effort to create outstanding spaces for people to work and live in. A problem they encounter at the end of a project is to have photographs that accurately represent their original vision. This is where I can help shine light on the design and artistry of a project! My process begins by taking the raw images that will be later composited. My work incorporates a lot of post-production to piece together different shots into a final image that stands out.
Different lenses are required for different tasks. Wide lenses can capture a lot of the subject matter in one shot. They can add drama and depth to otherwise boring images. When combined with the right time of the day, the results can be a lot more interesting than what can be captured with a standard lens or cell phone.
Photographing interiors has its tricky instances, especially when natural light is scarce. The camera does not capture the full dynamic range of a scene like the human eye does. Therefore, you end up with photos where the inside gets exposed perfectly while the outside would look completely washed out. In order to portray what our eyes actually see, many exposures have to be pieced together. The idea behind interior design photography editing is to make the viewer feel as if they are inside the room. When strobes are used, the goal is to make the images appear natural.
Since interior designers put great effort into every detail of the decoration aspect of a project, it’s crucial to take detail images (or vignettes) of the property. Those images vary from closeups of a set of items to a more artistic approach where objects are isolated and selectively focused.
