DO: Shoot with a small aperture.If you have a camera with adjustable lenses, you will want to shoot with a small aperture. This means the shot will have a large focus area and more of the scene will be clear and sharp. You want as much of your image to be in focus as possible, so that all the details of a space are represented. The aperture you choose will vary, and factors such as lighting will affect your decision too. Try shooting at f/8 to f/16 in rooms with a lot of light. Most of this living room scene is in focus, meaning the photographer shot with a smaller aperture. This f-stop setting was important in successfully capturing the table and chairs as well as the mantel in the background.
