When the space is too tight to get a good shot, consider utilizing reflections.
Go the extra mile when styling a tablescape/vignette shot. The Lilly of the Valley are the perfect finishing touch. Also, this composition is really interesting. The bust is the only item in the photo that is not cut off in some way. I love the way the table goes off the middle of the left side of the shot.
Consider composition - if you don't get it right when you shoot it, it's very easy to crop a photo in the computer later on. Also, adding details like the yellow flowers and making sure that the fireplace is turned on make a huge difference.
Open up! This transitional space is where you enter the house, slip off your shoes and set down your racquets. It's appropriate that the door is open and gives us a good peek outside.
Don't fear going off-center. That cabinet in the background is perfectly symmetrical. the way the chandelier and table are cut off on the right sideadds a lot of interest and helps portray the depth of the room.
Wait for sunset, and put your fixtures to good use. That view is stunning, but my eye is drawn to the lovely faucets and sink first because they have turned the faucets on for the shot.
Consider the center of the shot when composing. The farm table in the front leads you to the chair which leads you through the doorway to the room beyond.
Add action! Sometimes the room shines more when people are using it.
