3 Tips To Help You Photograph Your Home Like A Pro
It can be as easy as 1, 2, 3!
There really is no perfect formula to photography, especially when it comes to taking pictures of your home. You can hire a professional or follow all the "rules" but it can still come out far from the way you want it to look.
However, it doesn't hurt to follow some basic guidelines. Whether you're using a top-of-the-line camera or a basic digi-cam, these three tips will have you pointing in the right direction!

Make it crisp
When it comes to composing interior photos, the golden rule is to capture straight and crisp shots. Using a tripod can help you shoot upright but if you don't have one, try using your room's framework as a guide or the grid tool in your camera's viewfinder to help you out.

Keep it clutter-free
Make sure to keep eyesores out of sight when taking photos of a room—tie loose wires, move your laptop, turn the TV off, fluff the pillows and fix wall decor pieces. These simple steps can help make your space look like it came straight from a magazine! Remember, a clean layout can make your home look more inviting.

Maximize natural light
For some reason, indoor lighting makes shadows look shaky and the space look a bit boring. Take better and brighter shots by using natural light. If the sun coming through your window isn't enough, try increasing your camera's shutter speed to get the same effect.
RL Tip: Use your tripod to avoid motion blur and feel free to experiment with long exposure.
