Over at the home-centric site Apartment Therapy they’ve put together a list of tips and tricks for taking better pictures of your home. Among those tips they urge us to take on a new angle and break away from the monotony of photos taken at standard heights and angles:
This doesn’t mean you should take elevation-style pictures of everything. Definitely experiment with angles. Get up on a chair or down on your knees to find the most dynamic shot. For interiors especially, you will find that getting on your knees often offers the best angle. If you are photographing a tight area, use a wide angle lens to capture more space. Vary your angles and take some time to do close-up details as well. In a set, if all the images are made the same distance away from the camera and directly at eye level, it’ll become boring to click through very quickly. Fill your lens only with things that you think are attractive. If you’re getting a lot of tangled computer wires or other eyesores in your frame, move your camera until you don’t see them anymore.
