One of my favourite forms of photography is interior photography. This could range from high end interiors for magazines like ‘Beautiful Homes’ or classic shots for property including holiday lets. I have worked for Meero and Airbnb, so I was really excited when asked to photograph the Devonshire gem below.
The owner had spent quite some time paying attention to detail and had turned the cottage into a beautiful characterful holiday let. What particularly struck me was the beautiful light that streamed in through the upper bedroom windows. This is the reason that I chose to shoot in a bright and breezy style. This was in contrast to my last interior shoot where my style was very different but worked equally as well with the kind of property being shot.
Both owners were a joy to work with. Indeed, much of the pleasure I gain from this type of work, is ensuring I produce the right ‘look’.
The rules around interior photography are quite interesting. It can often take some time crafting each image and balancing out exposures between underexposed interiors versus bright windows can be challenging.
Some shots need bracketing to ensure all sensor data is present. I won’t go into detail here about bracketing, suffice to say it is a useful tool for obtaining even exposures. Below is a short video of some of what I think are the best shots. Please sit back relax and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed shooting them. The holiday let is now live on Airbnb so if you would like to stay there.
