Ok, It looks like I've jumped into a thread with some awesome photographers doing what I am only wishing and hoping I can do, based on the shots posted in here. Lots of nice work you all. So how does an amateur get to the point where I don't look amateur?
Do you all use flash photography or strobe setups? All hand held, or mostly tripod? As I had posted before, just looking for some good beginners tips.
I'm just a little overwhelmed and don't know where to start, I mean I see your shots and they are all great angles, but is there an angle, or height, or shot you look for in every room, to get consistent shots etc?
I see some of your shots, and I can see where you made a good shout out of a spot I wouldn't normally think could look so cool. I try to get the entire room, or shower, or cabinet and sometimes your shots are just cropped in or crops of certain areas of those spots and they look great, is a lot of that done after a wider shot, or do you just see that and take it, etc...I know it takes an eye for photography, to capture certain stuff, and since this kind of photography is new to me I'm new to the angles and my eye isn't quite trained for the cool shots yet...
It takes shooting, shooting and more shooting. Much of the magic for some comes in post processing while others stive to get the best shot in-camera. Some us flashes/strobes while others do not. Some use HDR, some do not.
In short, there is no one size fits all for any kind of photography. You have to find what works best for you (i.e. develop your own style) and develop it.
There is nothing wrong with striving to be as good as the guys/gals who know what they're doing. It will only make you learn various techniques to improve your skills.
But, like all photography, you have to shoot a lot and try different things to figure out how it's done. There are plenty of resources online for info and to ask questions (like here) but you still have to get out and do it.
Good luck and keep us posted on how things are going for you!
