6 steps to shooting Great Interior Photos

Posted by larrylohrman on January 7, 2006

There are six aspects for steps to shooting great interior marketing photos. The steps are:

  1. Use a camera with a wide-angle lens– at least 24mm, better down to 15mm
  2. Use a external flash or at tripod.
  3. Get a copy of Photoshop Elements and learn how to use it
  4. Thinking about what you are doing while onsite shooting photos
  5. Learn how to fix the common interior problems with Photoshop Elements
  6. Learn how to use Virtual tours

These are actually the chapter titles of the book I'm writing on this subject. The book goes into detail on all of these areas.

    What setup do you use for virtual tours? I have noticed that one company requires a fish eye lense for a Nikon D50, while others claim to get results with the standard nikkor 18-55 that comes with the body. Also, it seems like special tripods and lighting are very much par for the course. I would love to see a blog entry about this.

    Thank you.

    I use a fisheye lens for shooting my 360 images. The reason is that I can shoot a complete 360 shot with four fisheye images. With an 18mm lens it would take 8 to 10 shots and a panoramic head to cover the same 360 image. I’ll do a few posts on virtual tours.
