I am looking for pointers and tips for taking photos of flooring inside residential/commercial locations. My father-in-law installs hardwood floors and we may take some photos of his work for a website or brochures. I'm thinking of some nice shots with the floor as the focal point, but including the room as a whole. I've glanced through some magazines and feel i may be a little out of my league, any suggestions? Lenses? I have the 20D with 17-85 is. Is this wide enough? Elevation? shoot from eye level, low to floor, or try to elevate? Lighting? i'm sure this will be the biggest challenge, shut all window blinds and turn on lights? do i need filters to alter lighting? flash is pretty much useless for this kind of photography right? i'm appreciative for any advice y'all may have.
