5 Tips for Best Hotel and Luxury Resort Photography

It is great to have photography as your hobby turned in to profession because you are doing what you love and you love what you are doing. To top it all, being a hotel and luxury resort photographer adds a different essence to your life as you travel to a number of beautiful places where you are just not seeing the beauty but even enjoying their cuisines and diversity in living culture.

When I click photographs of any hotel or resort, I make sure every photograph gets a story to tell. Have a look at some of the tips that can help you in having a great photography session with properties.

Look Beyond
Either work on the details of the photo that you are taking or give importance to the surrounding. For instance, if you want to click a resort that is up on a hill, I would always capture the scenery with the resort it is embracing and not only the interior of the hotel. On the other hand, if the hotel has many artifacts, I would try capturing one artifact at a time for a closed detail view.

Change the Perspective
When you are clicking photos of any hotel, you should not only consider the design and the way it is been constructed but also your every photo must enhance its luxury. First understand the audience and then click. The owner of the hotel can use the photo shot by you to either promote the services of the hotel or augment its beauty. Hence, click every shot as a photographer who looks at the beauty of the photo and the audience. Make every photo a masterpiece of its own by magnifying its grace and class.

Use Color Combination
If you want to highlight any part, calm down the environment by shading it in black and white and grab the attention to a particular part through color. If you are clicking photos of any hotel cuisine, dim the rest of the photograph and highlight only the food item in perfect hues. Believe me; nothing can be as mesmerizing as your multi-color photo.

Work on Details
Do not over-depict the shot. No matter how big the room is, you can always give importance to small details of the hotel. For instance, click that small relic that is placed at the side corner table with a trivial vision of its background. Well-lit the room before clicking such snaps. Capture the shot in as simple way as possible. Give it a perfect serene look that can actually enrich the exquisiteness of your photography and would eventually help the owner to appreciate you for your detailed work.

Avoid Extra-Creativity
Usually hotels are filled with things, items or ancient objects. If the room is small but elegant and you are trying to capture it without perfect focus, the picture may distort the truth. Hence, use tripod to have flawless setting of the photo angle. Get that extra light if you feel the room is a little dull. Avoid flash of the camera as the reflective objects shine and completely absorb the vibe of the room making it too glossy for the click.

These quick tips are just the basic to get the best candid photographs for any hotel room or resort. Though they focus on minute details, you would not be able to achieve the best until you are proficient with every minuscule aspect. In the field of photography, where you have to speak through photos, you cannot overlook even the smallest identity. Hence, grab these no-brainer tips to show what you want to say.
