10 tips for taking better interior pictures
We have called upon Jean Cazals, our favourite food photographer, for advice: If we were going to have to use our own homes as our only Instagram backdrops for the foreseeable future, how could we make the best out of it? Jean has shot over 80 books, was awarded ‘Best Food Photographer 2012’, and ‘Gourmand Best Dessert CookBook UK 2013’ for his book ‘TeaTime’. His approach is clean, graphic and moody, based on natural light, elegant styling, and food presentation. Jean doesn’t just have an eye for food and lifestyle, he has decades of experience of portraiture for editorial, advertising, and design clients. Long story short, he is perfect for the job.
5. Let the geometry guide you
Keep all the lines straight. Take the wall on each side of the image as a guide. You do not want lines going sideways. Try to look at the room being shot from 3/4 or face on. It is different and will give a different dynamic.
