How to Take Great Photos

Lighting

Shoot during the early morning or late afternoon for softer light. Avoid harsh midday sun which can create unflattering shadows and highlights.

    Composition

    Try various angles to capture the uniqueness of your pool and its surroundings. Include wide shots that show the entire setting and closer shots that highlight the details of the Tara pool liner.

    Staging

    Arrange any poolside furniture neatly. Ensure that umbrellas are uniformly open or closed and that all cushions are tidy and in place.
    Ensure the pool water is calm and clean. Still water reflects light beautifully and highlights the design and color of your pool liner.
    Remove unnecessary items like cleaning equipment or yard tools that can clutter the view.

    Technical Tips

    Use a tripod for stability, especially in lower light conditions.
    If using a smartphone, tap on the area of the screen where the pool is to ensure the focus is sharp.
