Over the years, I’ve had the good fortune of photographing many beautiful kitchens. Kitchens are often the focal point of a home and one of the top rooms people splurge on for remodeling. When shooting kitchens I think it’s important to show a variety of views. This helps the viewer see the space from different angles. Whenever possible, I like to capture one or two overall shots and then include some tighter shots highlighting important design elements.
Below are two examples from projects I photographed for Mid-Continent Cabinetry.
Another important aspect of photographing kitchens is controlling the quality of light. Some kitchens have ample windows allowing plenty of daylight to shine in, others make smart use of interior lighting in displaying the mood of the space. Some combine these features. In all cases, the photographer has the ability to control the quality of the light. My preference is to capture a natural light feel, carefully adding supplemental lighting where needed, making sure not take away from that natural light atmosphere.
Below are a few examples of kitchens I’ve photographed that capture what I’m talking about.
