Photographer Tutorial 9: Kitchens
Kitchens are another important feature of the house. The trademark real estate kitchen shot is taken from outside of the kitchen and countertop island looking towards the cabinetry and windows. This is typically a two-point perspective shot but kitchens are where one point perspectives can be very effective and orderly. One example of an effective one point perspective kitchen shot, is a shot of the stools lining the countertop island horizontally with the wall side countertops and cabinets in the background. Another example is shooting down the corridor created by the island and the countertop.
Like I mentioned while discussing on point perspectives before, one side will necessarily be open, so the space won't look overly closed. Also the shot makes the space between the island and the countertop look expansive, so prospective buyers will be assured that there's ample space for cooking. Sometimes it's a good idea to shoot from inside of the kitchen looking out into space is beyond. This can be a good bridge between two spaces, articulating the layout of different sections of the house and how they are related. Always take at least two or three different angles of the kitchen so that the agent has options. They may even want all three!
