PROJECT: Inspire

May 29, 2015

Picture2Some homeowners and business owners know exactly where they want their next project to take them, but why not lead them with a little inspiration.  That is why we have developed the online Projects Submission Form.  Here you can upload before and after photos, descriptions and even product information.  Here are some tips on how to best capture a great Project image.

1. Emphasize The Room… Avoid showing people or product close-ups.  When you acquire the concept of the entire space, it allows the viewer to piece each element together.  This creates a visually appealing image that best represents your work.

2. De-clutter… Remove irrelevant items from countertops or surrounding areas.  An everyday lived in home or office will most likely accumulate items that would be less desirable to feature in your newly redesigned space.

3. It’s Showtime… Make the room look its best through staging.  This process is most effective after step 2.  Allowing you to create focal points, drawing the eye into certain areas and making the room look more spacious and stimulating.Picture3

4. Focus, Please… Aim for a high quality photo that is free of blurs or poor angles.  You can achieve this with most smartphones these days.  However, if you have access to a quality high resolution camera, this will most likely be your best option.

5. Be Enlightened… Ensure the room lighting is bright and even, free of shadows or shaded spaces.  Accent lighting can sometimes help or hinder this step depending on the angle.  You may also want to take into consideration the natural light that seeps in throughout the day.
