How to create camera view in small bathroom

Hi all,
trying to create camera view in a really small bathroom. Any suggestions? Tried field of view but still keep bumping into a wall!

I tried that as well but there is the toilet or the vanity or the shower gets cut off.

You can hide elements and create a scene and the scene will remember to keep them hidden. Also your FOV is 27 degrees. That’s really narrow/shallow. Try 50 which is more in line with what the eye sees. It also all depends on which direction you’re looking and what your focal point is for your design.

SketchUp’s Zoom tool (and the scroll wheel) doesn’t “Zoom” in the sense that a photographer uses the term, see this post:

What you probably want is to position eye point, (possibly even with the Position Camera tool), and then zoom with the shift key down. That changes the focal length/angle of view without moving the camera/eye point. The Field of View tool is different: it actually moves the eye point and changes the focal length at the same time.

It is a small space that is probably impossible to capture adequately in a single image. A photographer would approach it with something like an ultrawideangle lens. In this image I placed the camera at the door and used a 28 mm FOV (probably about 20 mm in camera terms). It is distorted but you see worse published every day.

You could try placing a Section cut just in front of the toilet bowl, then see a view like this:

This just used the default field of view - which said it was 28 deg(rees)
