I took this series of photographs for a client of mine, Binne Confort, they are a Brazilian retail shoe chain with 6 stores, all located at shopping malls.
The stores are confortable but small, so the pictures must focus on the confort and try to avoid the idea of small rooms, which may not be so comfortable.
In these occasions I use to follow two rules: avoid people and photograph with wide angle lenses.
Avoiding people is usefull when photographing small places because a person in a picture adds the sense of size and scale, which is great to large places, but unwanted for the small ones.
And the use of wide angle lenses allows to extend the sense of distance between the foreground and background, making the place looks a little larger.
All pictures done with the Canon EOS7D, EFs 10-22mm lens, no filters. Converted from RAW to TIF and JPEG in DPP (Digital Photo Professional).
Hope you like it.
