Part II: Techniques Unlimited > Architectural Photography

Chapter 8. Architectural Photography

Don’t confuse architectural photography with Architectural Photography. The formal kind is a highly specialized art with complex rules and guidelines and the intent of producing immaculate shots fit to grace the covers of Architectural Digest or House Beautiful. Professional practitioners of the serious variety work for clients that include architectural firms, city planners, housing developers, or designers. They work with medium- or large-format cameras with sophisticated swings and tilts that can bring all the converging lines of a typical building into their proper perspective. Although it’s hard work, Architectural Photography is rewarding.

The kind of architectural photography you and I might do can be equally rewarding, if a little less stress-filled and requiring less in the way of specialized equipment. The digital camera you already have is easily capable of capturing some great pictures of architecture if you learn the ropes and know a few tricks. That’s what I’ll be providing you in this chapter.
