Before & After – The Importance of Good Lighting in Interiors Photography

When it comes to photographing property; it’s less about location, location, location and more about light, light, light. Ambient light, artificial light and (this is where we come in), flash light. Good lighting in interiors photography is crucial.
As we walk around the world, most things appear to be pretty well lit. The human eye and brain have a pretty amazing ability to record detail in the brightest and the darkest places at the same time. Cameras unfortunately are far more limited. Even the presence of artificial lamp light leaves horrible colour casts over a scene when rendered on camera. Something the human eye would adjust for and correct without us even noticing. There are a few ways to combat this shortcoming and one of the best is to

In Pictures: York Holiday Cottage Photography

Back at the beginning of the year we had the pleasure of photographing this lovely holiday cottage, right in the city centre of York. It had been beautifully restored and updated (I’d actually photographed it when it was for sale in its dilapidated state) and transformed into a great holiday let in the perfect location for exploring York. Honestly, it is the kind of space that would make someone want their own holiday home, be it one of the houghton lake mi homes for sale or in the York area.

Showhome Photography in Easingwold, North Yorkshire

Show homes demand to be well photographed. After care and attention has been lavished up on it, making it look as great as possible it’s a no brainer to get a photographed by a specialist experienced interiors photographer. Showhome photography will be the first thing perspective customers see, whether that is an article by a local paper (who are always more likely to write features where great photography has been provided), a billboard on site or a brochure either online or printed.

Liefstyle plays an important role in these shoots, as you aren’t photographing the actual house people will (normally) be buying you’re trying to show customers

Interior Photography of a Yorkshire country house renovation project

One of our clients has recently completed the refurbishment of a beautiful old country house in the heart of Yorkshire. They are more commonly found working on commercial buildings than residential ones and were keen for some good photographs to show off their skills on a more modest scale. We only had a narrow window of opportunity to get the photographs after all the building work had been done but before the keys were handed back to the owner.

The refurbishment covered every room in the house and included things like a new bathroom, a new kitchen and updated plumbing and electrical fixtures. They had heard about a dumpster rental in arvada area and took inspiration, which consequently made the whole process a lot cleaner and quicker. Removing the waste and returning to collect more. The renovation made a big difference to the house and really brought it into the 21st century. It has a modern, stylish design with an ode to the history of the house with the inclusion of things like the old fireplaces and the farmhouse kitchen. The new lights, in particular, have helped to brighten the house up and have added to the modern feel. If you are looking to brighten up your home, adding some new lighting fixtures is the best and easiest way to do so you can read more about electrician services here if you are interested.

Unfortunately, the rooms were unfurnished so the shoot list was adjusted to ensure the client had an interesting portfolio of shots as opposed to just a series of empty rooms. We were able to concentrate and fixed details such as the fireplaces and windows and make full use of the bathrooms and kitchens, all detailed to the most exacting standards.

Our York Interiors photographer shows off an Edwardian Semi

This is dream house sort of stuff. Stunning south facing garden, beautiful original features, (mostly) fantastic light and elegant interior design. Another one of the type of properties our York interiors photographer loves to photograph.

There’s no doubt about it, white/neutral walls make a house easier to photograph. Bouncing light off pale walls is as easy as pie for someone with years of experience in the game. And the photographs usually look pretty good. Sometimes though a bit of colour, and the challenges that brings to photographers can set a house apart and really make it sing. This period property had a great mix of both neutrals and strong colours. The results speak for themselves showing a house with soul and character.

Eco House Builder Photography | Derwenthorpe, York

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has recently been involved in building a large number of new houses on the outskirts of York. I often drive by them and admire their form as I do. For these aren’t your standard ‘noddy house’. They have been built to custom designs, all are heated by a community heating system (a large biomass boiler based in the scheme’s community centre) and many have winter gardens, allowing them to grow plants and vegetables all year round, directly off their living accommodation.
Walking around the finished part of the development it’s easy to see that these homes make an interesting place to live. Full height windows, high ceilings, wide sweeping tree lined roads all give

In Photographs | The period interior of a York Terrace House

Property age tends to have the biggest effect on the look and feel of a property. There will, of course, always be exceptions with contemporary conversions of old building and new build ‘mock’ architecture switching things around and throwing off your preconceptions made on age alone. This beautiful York terrace had period charm abounds. Detailed architraves, cornices, dressers, balustrades, fireplaces, the list went on and on. It can sometimes be difficult to carry a properties charm across in photographs and this is where using a good professional photographer pays dividends. Every house has to be approached on its own. While there are ‘rules’ that can be applied to
