Today’s Quick Staging Tip:
It’s important to translate the correct perspective when your stage and take pictures of your painted piece of furniture. While you want your piece to be the center of attention, you don’t want to mislead the buyer. Depth, distance and dimension are key. When you’re taking photos of your staged piece, take a front-and-center “eye-level” picture of the piece. This is especially important for the initial photo that everyone sees first. You want the top and bottom to be symmetrical and you don’t want your piece to be cut-off in the photo.
The location and/or angle that you’re taking the photo from will vary depending of the type of furniture your photographing. For example, a tall hutch will be photographed differently compared to a small coffee table. Just keep in mind that one size, or picture in this case, doesn’t fit all!
