Decluttering on a Commercial Architectural Photoshoot

Here at David Meaux Photography, we take great care in making sure that every image has that clean and crisp look that we love so much!  Take a look at some of these before and after images to see the difference it makes when a space is cleared of objects, papers, wires, vents etc.  Notice how much the space opens up and becomes inviting!

Sometimes it is not about decluttering a space but more about making sure that the furniture is positioned at the right angle for the camera.  It can sometimes take quite a bit of time to position the chairs and tables right to get the properly balanced photo!

Chairs and tables in this conference room were moved around for best camera angle.

For this intern station, we moved each chair for the best angle and removed or retouched all the cords and other objects that distracted from the focus of the space.  We've also removed any third party labels on the computer equipment.
