The Castle Keepers Program requires that you have both the quantity and quality of furniture to furnish the house for which you have been selected. In order to properly evaluate how your furniture will compliment the Castle Keepers homes, your pictures need to fit specific criteria. All pictures MUST be Horizontal NOT Vertical. Learn more about the photography process through the video below.
Castle Keepers needs at least two pictures of every room of furniture, from two different camera angles to get the best perspective. Try to get as much of the furniture in the room in each picture. Take additional pictures of the room from 2 or 3 different camera angles if possible to include different views of the room. Below is an example of two good pictures of a room of furniture.
Take Photos Of The Entire Room
Each set of pictures should show an entire room of furniture as opposed to close up’s of individual pieces of furniture. These pictures are used to get an idea of how your furniture would fit in the rooms of a Castle Keepers house. Take these pictures as far back in the room from the furniture if you can.
|Good Angle #1||Good Angle #2|
Take Good Quality Photos
Make sure that your pictures are clear and are of sufficient quality to show the detail and quality of your furniture. Use an adequate camera that provides photos with a good resolution. Watch the Castle Keepers video below for more tips on taking pictures and to learn more.
|Too Close||Good Distance|
Ensure Good Lighting For Photos
When you are taking the pictures make sure that you have proper lighting in all of the rooms. Try to take the pictures during the day to use as much natural light as possible to show the colors and materials at their best. Here are some other examples.
|Not Clear Enough||Good Quality|
|Bad Lighting||Good Lighting|
