You could probably start interior photography with nothing more than a camera, a lens and a tripod. How successful you’ll be will depend on what you’re photographing and how demanding your client is. If you’re lucky, your first location will be spacious, tidy and well lit and the client will be happy with the results. “That wasn’t so hard” you’ll be thinking to yourself.
Unfortunately, life is never so easy. The next space will probably be small, untidy and with hardly any light. You’ll scratch your head and pace around the room wondering what’s gone wrong. I know the feeling. Interior photography is almost entirely about solving problems: light, colour, reflections, space and time will all seem to conspire against you.
