Composition is key to creating beautiful photos. While photography is surely subjective, some perspectives are usually more pleasing than others. Study other photographs to see what perspectives you like; your perspective will vary depending on your audience and interests. I often change my compositions: diagonal, directly on and even asymmetrical to highlight certain details. Taking the opportunity to compose a shot will make a massive difference for the final result.

Use your frame to compose the mass of the building and reveal an area’s layers. The top photographs explore the way distances — and their substances — interact.

Just frame exactly what you want the viewer to pay attention to. Fantastic composition creates a room look spacious and inviting and leads the eye around the entire space.

Tip: A wide-angle lens will create a certain amount of distortion. To lessen the “fishbowl” effect, ensure that your camera isn’t too close to any furniture. It also can help to appear directly onto your subject, like this picture.

People have a tendency to like symmetry. The distance should be balanced — not a lot of objects on either side or another. Sometimes good composition is about what you don’t include.

Tip: Crop your photo after you take it to give you more choices. Cropping can tighten up a makeup and eliminate distractions.

Studio William Hefner

Shoot from a low angle and produce a route for the viewer to walk in the room. This low camera angle makes the planes of this counter tops and table smaller and puts the furniture in scale to the entire room and scene. The makeup invites the viewer to sit at the dining table or walk outside; it has a pleasant, subtle dynamic.

A powerful, based and optional article works well on small displays. In this picture, we see the detail of this table legs and the fullness of this chandelier without too much extra ceiling space. The invitation to the room beyond is a bonus which educates the viewer about how the fireplace floats inside two rooms.

A one-point perspective photograph in this way shows off the room’s graphic design and also the elevation of the fireplace wall and shows how the window grid subtly reproduces out. The photographer retained the height of this camera low.

Tip: Maintain the styling easy and think about the placement of the styling components. This shot looks architectural and clean but nevertheless inviting. An interior designer may have desired to dress the sofas with cushions and throws.

Framing a opinion is a superb way to add interest. In this photograph, there’s a richer experience of this room knowing that a steel-framed door contrasts each of the wood.

Tips: For architectural shots, make sure the doors and walls are straight up and down; it makes the picture look more professional and graphic.

Dealing with large, dark parts of furniture isn’t simple. In this picture, the piano, firebox and tall apparel balance each other in placement and scale in the composition to ground the photograph. The photograph is almost bookended by the dark objects on the left and right.

Tip: all the lights are off in the area, so the viewer focuses on the natural light flowing in from the bay window. This is a trend in today’s interior and architectural photographs.

The balanced use of negative space can get the job done well to highlight the volume and architecture of a more modern space. Within this area, a wide-angle lens has been used to shoot directly on to the fireplace. The vacant regions in the foreground with the carpet and ceiling airplane are nicely balanced.

Tip: Repeating colour through a room can have a wonderful effect. I like how the pink on the outside blossoms continues inside with more flowers and a casual pink throw.
