The best way to photograph tricky spaces

Do you have a space in your home that you love but can’t seem to photograph right?

This little multicoloured scene, featuring a @primark.home shelf with @kcroxsontea towel against a @littlegreenepaintcompany Ultra Blue wall, is near my kitchen sink, nestling close to the long shelf that runs the length of the Colour File kitchen, way up high. It looks so sweet, so innocent, so ‘go on – photograph me!’ So I do – or at least I TRY. But it turns out this is one heck of a crafty corner.

Straight on? Sideways? Portrait? I’ve tried them all and this is the best I could do. Nonetheless, I still adore this tricky little space. How long do YOU spend on a single interiors snap?

Presumably some virtually take themselves while others you have to work for? Photographic wizards out there – what’s the trick for tricky corners? Give me your top tips: I’m all ears!! 👂👂
