3. Master of illusion
One thing we can all agree on is that size matters.
Floorplans can make homes seem larger. On paper, even the messiest most clutter-filled of homes can present a tidy, spacious appearance.
That dingy box room, piled high with memorabilia, its window so darkened by piles of washing and old board games, that the photographer cringed away from it like a reverse-vampire? Its slate is wiped clean by the empty square of potential on the floorplan.
Whilst in most cases, floorplans help to support the photographer’s imagery and add an extra dimension of reality, floorplans can also help to correct any flaws in photography.
In awkwardly-shaped rooms where photographers may struggle to fully capture the available space, a visual representation with measurements could help save the day.
