Villa Rental Photography – Photo Of The Week – No 12

This week we have a “masterclass of a photo” for you to feast your eyes on.
Many owners attempt this type of photo without giving it too much thought so we thought we would show you how to nail it.

Colour is key

This photo is so good on so many levels it’s difficult to know where to start, so let’s start by having a look at it.


Here’s the photo

Villa Rental Photography

This weeks photo comes from http://www.theluberon.com/rentals

We have featured photos from this site before and photographer Paolo De Paolis has a great eye for detail and style and both shine through here.
Many owners set a dining table with a few plates, wine glasses and some cutlery and yet fail to capture any degree of temptation.
Here’s how it should be done.
1. First off the tablecloth attracts the eye, adds colour and leads you into the photo with it’s stripes.
2. The photo is taken close to the table so it conveys details. (like the olives)
3. The row of red flowers are just gorgeous, again, they boost colour and add a touch of class.
4. The candle sticks and the bottles of wine dress the set perfectly.
5. The door is open, leading into the house.

  1. Hey, I just saw your site and good for you with your yacht! I usually do not converse too much with photographers but looks like you are having fun.That is it nothing too deep or interesting.

      Hi Christopher,

      Thanks for the comment.
      You don’t have to be too deep or interesting. I’m flattered that you took the time to drop me a line especially as you don’t normally chat to photographers. It’s not all fun as we are currently repainting the yacht as the last 10,000 miles took away some of her shine.
      PS. Love your work (as I’m sure you know) and would like to feature one of your photos in the “photo of the week”
