Whether you are staging photos of your piano to sell, or simply want to capture musical memories for your scrapbook or social media, there’s an art to capturing the perfect piano snapshot—and today, we’re sharing a few tips on how to do it. Take a look.
Show your instrument some TLC
Regular piano upkeep can help your instrument shine in photographs! You don’t need to go to extremes to get a beautiful piano—simply show some TLC with regular dusting or wiping with a feather duster or microfiber cloth. This will help remove dust, fingerprints and other signs of everyday use.
Let the light in
For the overall longevity of your instrument, it is best to keep your piano out of direct light. That means positioned away from windows, or at least keeping your drapes and curtains closed—however, for the purposes of your photo op, it can be helpful to let the light in temporarily to showcase the instrument in all its glory!
Experiment with angles
Your piano is best admired from a wide variety of angles, so experiment with several to get the shots you need! An overhead, aerial-style shot is a great way to showcase clean lines and the playing surface, especially if you are capturing an action shot or fancy finger work for a technique tutorial.
