Some rules apply across all photography; some ideas are relevant for some situations and not others. Lighting a face for a portrait is different to getting a naturally lit image of a room. But as long as the image capture what you set out to capture, or accidentally captures something interesting, there is no set way to do anything.
For Photographing a Room
– Use natural light if possible. Our eyes like natural light.
– Use a reflector if you wish to highlight something that looks a little dim. This can be a shiny surface, or even a large white panel.
– If you must use a flash, then bounce it off a reflector for a less harsh look.
– If there are lighting problems use some natural light bulbs. You can buy two or three bulbs and move them as you photograph each room.
– Unlike most other types of photography you are unlikely to capture a spontaneous moment. Take your time.
– Try straight shooting. Align yourself with a wall and photography the room from one end, keeping the opposite wall square in the middle. Else, use architecture as a guide. If you have a spiral staircase, photograph it looking down the middle.
– Keep it clean and open. Our brains like to put the details aside and get the overall shape and impression. Remove all the little details and let the room be windows, walls, a central table, and some sparse décor.
– Get rid of anything not a permanent part of the room- vacuums, cords, toys, cutlery…etc. Sometimes a large item, like the family pet, might be beneficial.
– Be careful of reflective surfaces- you might see yourself in the photo!
– A tripod can make all the difference. If you don’t own one you can find them cheap at many second-hand and disposal stores. This
