Chair Photo Tips
I am sure that many photographers have taken pictures of chairs in a variety of settings, including churches, gardens and public parks. So what you need to do is to research this topic in advance and plan your shots in advance.
The first thing to decide is the size and style of your chair. Are you planning to photograph the whole chair or just part of it? Do you want to photograph the seat, the back, legs or other parts of the chair? Once you have decided on the type of chair you want to use, you need to look for suitable locations. For instance, the first thing to think about is whether you will have a good level of privacy, so that you will be able to hide your camera and tripod behind a hedge or tree.
Depending on the location you choose, you need to think about lighting. You should try to take your pictures in a place where the light will not be obtrusive and where the sun will be shining directly overhead. Also, if the chair is near a path, try to avoid placing it so that the sunlight is casting shadows across the chair.
Once you have decided where to take your photographs, you will need to think about the composition. For instance, if you have a churchyard and the sun is behind you, you might like to arrange the chairs so that their shadows point towards the sun. You might also want to make sure that the chairs are facing each other.
Finally, you will need to think about your composition. You can have a view of the chair, either by itself or in a garden, or you might like to have some other objects in the background, such as a building or a statue.
Hope this helps, and I look forward to hearing how your project goes.
