By Walter Ross

Despite a camerawork industry being the most competitive and difficult to start a successful venture, it is still possible to run a successful camerawork career by specializing in a specific field. Some fields have not been exploited like shooting buildings interior designs. This is a very promising and interesting field with a lot of untapped potential for growth. However, to start a venture in this field, an individual must have several important characteristics and tips that will help them start and run the venture successfully. This article will discuss several important tips that may help in achieving success in an interior design photography career.

Success in this field of specialization needs one to invest in either wide angle or ultra-wide angle lens or both. This lenses will be very useful and will also make your picture look presentable because they capture a wider angle of a room capturing a lot of important detail. If the cameraman has enough resources, they can invest in tilt-shift lens which though, expensive they have a wide range of uses.

Snapping a room while standing in the corner is a very effective technique to employ in this field. This is because, from the corner, a cameraman can capture more detail and also a wider angle of the room they are snapping. Taking trial shots from different corners of the room helps to determine the most suitable position to snap the room from.

A cameraman should always try to utilize and take advantage of the light the light source available in the room. They should ensure that it is balanced such that is neither too bright nor too dark. However, the best light source to use is the natural lighting of the sun from either an open door or a window in the room, and the best light to use is the golden morning shine or the sunset light.

Another important technique to employ in this field is designed a sequence of snapping the room. A cameraman should take time to observe the room before snapping to come up with a perfect sequence they will use to snap the room. They should also ensure that the room is in order before they start snapping.

Another tip to use when carrying out an assignment in this field is trying different apertures on the same object. Different apertures will give different effects on a specific object, and the quality of the snaps will differ depending on the focus used to snap it.

Another tip to use in this field is trying snapping from high and raised areas when capturing images of large rooms. Capturing a room from a high point can be very effective in capturing a high-end quality image with a very wide angle. This can be done using ladders, snapping from a staircase or standing over a kitchen counter.

Using props to enhance the quality of the snap is also another technique that is effective when used well. Though adding props may improve quality of an image, cameramen should always be careful not to overuse them.
