Tips for taking good photos
1. Choose the best angle
A good tip for shooting indoor environments is to position yourself in the corners. This way, it is easier to get all the space in a frame, and this gives a greater amplitude of the place.
How about taking advantage of natural light? If you build your photo’s scenery near a window or open door, you will be able to use more natural light. To compensate for the lack of natural light, turn on the lights in the room, such as a luminaire. The result will look beautiful.
3. Clean up the mess
Do you think time is short for that perfect tidy up? It doesn’t matter. Take narrower pictures and remove objects that might give you the idea of a mess, such as clothes hanging on the bedroom door or in the bathroom, objects scattered around the room, purses and newspapers on the table. By doing just that, you will already give a much more organized appearance to your home.
4. Do not forget photos of your city
Photos of the city and the surrounding area are great options for attracting interest from other members. Do a Google search and you will find lots of photos of where you live. If you want help with your city profile, write to us.
And finally, kindness generates kindness
Your home doesn’t need to be large or luxurious. The most important thing is to receive guests with whims and attention. Do something kind, prepare your house with care. This way you can be sure that you will always have new destinations and good memories of your exchanges.
