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

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. With these old country house renovations, there will always be some surprises behind the door like an infestation due to wood rot, dampness, etc. that is why before any new thing is added everything infected must be taken out, and the structure treated by using pest control crescent city services, or ones that are available at that time, so that there is no chance the infestation can stay and develop. There will always be something to re-do, take out, put back in, and so on, but as long as it is done correctly whilst using the correct professionals, it should come out looking its best.

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. Electrical improvements really have brought the house to life, not just by appearance such as lighting, but by the cool feel of the place. By getting a HVAC system installed into the property meant that the whole house’s temperature could be controlled, which is a big jump in the way of modernity. After making big searches into air conditioning services to provide them with a HVAC system, a company similar to Service Legends (https://www.servicelegends.com/services/ac-repair/) was used to make the changes. 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.

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

Boutique hotel – Blacklight display photography

We shot a really interesting installation in a boutique hotel in York. The room featured a display invisible to the naked eye under normal light but after switching on the black-light tubes the artwork was revealed. This was one of the highlights of the shoot with each room offering a unique theme. If you’d like to check it out for yourself why not pay them a visit next time you are in York (don’t forget to hook us up for a coffee while you are here).
