I have recently taken some photos of an house that my customer wanted to sell.

interior architecture photography of a kitchen - final photo

The main room is composed of a beautiful kitchen and a salon in its extension.

The final image is a composition of two photos.

As the ceiling and the walls are white, I have used them as reflectors to have an homogenous lighting of the kitchen and the salon.

I have firstly placed a flash in the opening on the right hand side of the photo, behind the kitchen. This flash is oriented toward the ceiling. This flash was used to light the bottom elements of the kitchen and the worktop.

The second flash is on the ground of the salon and is also oriented toward the ceiling to create a soft light.

For the second photo, I have used the walls behind me to illuminate the ceiling and the kitchen. This setup illuminates without any reflection the top part of the kitchen and the front part of the photo.

The flashes are visible on the photo.

For these two photographies, I have measured the lights with a light meter to be sure that all photo parts (bottom parts of the kitchen, the ceiling, the salon, etc.) were well exposed.

Finally, I have composed the final image. A small crop and a perspective adjustment were the last modifications made to this photo.

By the way, the house has been quickly sold.

If you have any question on the methodology, ask them in the comment part.
