Lighting Is KEY for creating AMAZING Guest Room photos.

There are many factors in creating a great photo of a guest room but it all starts with lighting. Every room in your B&B offers a unique experience and deserves to be shown in ideal light. When we walk into a room our eyes are amazing at capturing light and color. On the other hand, our cameras are not. There is some work to do here in order to show a room in the best light and get those heads in beds! Below is an example of a room that was captured without lighting and with lighting. The difference is clear. Agree?


This is an example from a shoot at the Inn at Wawanissee Point in Baraboo, WI. It’s an amazing room with an incredible view. In order to capture the beautiful room, along with the deck and view of the lake, I needed to use a considerable amount of lighting.
