2017, March. Long Island. Housing Collection.

When it comes to shooting house, there are many things that we need to bear in mind. Fortunately, it’s not an endless list. Following are some basic notes for photographers:

You should choose shoot places that you know, check out what you might have access to, and don’t be afraid to ask neighbors if they have a fantastic view or interesting home.

Look for patterns and strong shapes in the architecture. These are the elements that hold a picture together. Think about the windows and doors of homes on a street or the repeat pattern in roofs and brickwork.

Think about the time of day you take your pictures. When the sun is high in the sky it can create strong shadows and contrast. If you photograph early in the morning or later on in the day you’ll get a softer cross-lit feel.

When people name their homes they give them personality. What makes houses homes? A door knocker, the objects placed in the windows, the flowers planted outside – think details.

Don’t forget that this isn’t necessarily a purely architectural project. Sometimes it helps to have figures to give a sense of scale and context.

Think about how you want your pictures to hang together: do you want to set yourself an assignment exploring your own home with a variety of shots (general views, details, portraits) or create a set of pictures about housing as a wider subject (terraces, blocks of flats etc)?

Look for dynamic compositions, extreme (from above or below) viewpoints will stop the pictures becoming monotonous and give you a varied array of viewpoints, creating diversity within your pictures.
