The Laundry Room
All right. So moving on to the laundry room, this is another kind of basic room. But a for me, it's pretty simple. I'm gonna take one from this angle from sort of this corner of the room that you see in your frame and one sort of opposite. And there's a couple of things I'm trying to highlight in this photo. I'm trying to highlight this bench, which is awesome. The door to the exterior, the continuation of this room to the powder room, which you can tell from that wallpaper. So anyone walk looking through these photos would see that this connects to that bathroom. And then of course, the washer and dryer and any sort of cupboards and storage that we have in this room. So I think this angle is pretty good. We have these cool hooks on the wall. I'm gonna move this backpack to this one. It was kind of taking up a lot of visual weight on the right side of the frame. Yeah, I think that looks pretty cool shoes are not perfect but kind of normal to have them a little bit strewn like that. Thi...
s is a photo where I do not want to see what's outside, it's the driveway to the garage, there's a lot of stuff out there. And so what I'm going to do is completely over, expose that I'm not going to be doing any sort of window pulls for this photo. So right now if we want sort of a naturally lit shot, what I would do is decrease our shutter speed. Now, we are getting some kind of interesting reflections going up on the wall to the left. It looks like coming from the window behind me. I'm just going to have to live with that. Maybe there's things I can do in post to sort of blend that together, but that's ok. It's not a make or break, sort of shot or aspect to the shot. So here looking pretty good for a natural shot, but I'm just going to go ahead and shoot this with our flam bent style. So we are turning on the lights in the laundry room as well as in the bathroom behind. We're a little bit bright right now. So this looks pretty good. Just wanna make sure we are as level as possible using this cupboard on the left as sort of our guide post for what we want up and down. That looks pretty dang good. So we're going to go ahead and take the shot. Nice. Now, let's do one with our flash full power just from behind camera. A bit pointed up at the ceiling and that looks pretty good. Might take one from over here as well. Now, with this one, I'm going to actually set up my flash point into the ceiling and then get out of frame. You might be able to see my cat in the frame, but that's ok. Cool. That was a little bit too much getting on the wall over there. So that flash is just sitting in a cupboard up there which now you can see open, we'll see if that does anything. Yeah, not bad, might be able to use some of that for one of our photos. So that's from this angle. I'm gonna swap sides and we're gonna move this camera to the other side for the opposite angle. So for this shot, I'm actually literally gonna be opening this door and sticking one leg of this tripod out the frame to get as close to this wall as possible. Now, we do have some dirty laundry in this washer, so I might take that out real quick. So those are things you might have to do as a photographer and that's totally fine for the shot. Of course, you want to ask the homeowner if it's OK for you to do that. So this shot's looking pretty good. I don't like how this backpack is in the frame like how it was. I'm gonna take that down and that's looking pretty good. So I'm gonna take this shot like so and we're gonna do our flash shot. Nice. That looks pretty good. I also think that this laundry room lends itself to a flat shot this way, kind of looking at our, our laundry machine and then also the cupboards. So let's see what that will look like. So we do have the cat in the shot. We've got this toilet in the shot because which isn't a bad thing because it gives us more context to where we are as I like to do, let's move you out of the frame and that's looking pretty good. I mean, typically I would probably move the, the cat out of the shop for sure. But this is looking pretty good. The washers don't seem to be the dryer doesn't seem to be perfectly level, something like that looks pretty good. It might be a little bit bright. There we go. Something like that's looking better. I'll be able to strain this out more in post. We had our flash going. So let's turn that off. Let's turn our flash on maybe a little hot and then again, nice. That looks good. So that's pretty much it for the laundry room. Now, with every room, you're not going to be able to get every single corner, every single inch unless you take just so too many photos, but you don't want to take too many photos. You want two solid ones per typical room and then for the kitchen, primary bedroom, living spaces you might need some additional ones. But I think that pretty much covered it well for the laundry room.
