Proportion is key when taking photos of your furniture. You do not want your piece of furniture to look too small, but you also do not want to make it look larger than it actually is. To help with this, I always try to cover at least 1/2 to 2/3 the length of the piece. It is important to remember that you do not want to see a lot of “hollow” space between your props, but you also do not want them crammed together. So, keep it simple and clutter free. Start in the middle and work your way out. As I stated before, you do not want to take away from the piece of furniture, you want to enhance the piece and provide a vision for the potential customer.
