Upon entering into a tourist shop in Mexico, one could not ignore the burst of bright colors from the little guitars that greeted the shoppers.

Classical or contemporary; architectural photography can be as challenging as it is rewarding. Natalie Denton (nee Johnson) is the former editor of Digital Photographer magazine, and is now a freelance journalist and photographer who has written for dozens of photography and technology magazines and websites over the last decade.
I started looking up ND filters, but I wonder what is the best range to be in (ND8, 16, 64, …) ? Nizar, I’m a hobbyist with an n4 I would recommend an n8 if your looking for relatively long exposures. Your trolling comments are just an ignorant knee-jerk reaction to someone you disagree with.

Mexico played Trinidad & Tobago at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, NC on July 15, 2015. Be sensitive to the direction of light as this can increase contrast, shadows, textures and reflections. A fish eye or wide-angle lens (and focal length) is ideal for this genre as it enables photographers to frame the entire building within its environment. Unlike other forms of photography, exciting architectural images can be produced in all weathers. Reflections add an extra dimension to architectural images and allow the photographer to create a canvas on which the building can be playfully distorted. The average building is far taller than the tallest photographer so there will inevitably be some element of distortion in an architectural photo, but this can be employed to create a source of tension within the frame.
To give you and idea on a normal sunny day with my n4 I can get relatively well (not under or over) exposed images with a 30 second shutter speed and a medium aperture size. There is nothing in this article that’s usable to any architectural photographer on any level.
For example, the comments about aperture settings as it relates to architecture is way off. I would like to show the the general public reading these comments just how unintelligent you are.
By making this assertion, you poison the minds of the readers who came into this without a prior understanding of architecture, and thus dooming them to mediocrity in their work.


He’s the author most loved by architects, and he wrote some books for non-architects, so that they might understand architecture. My Nikon was busy working so I pulled out the trusty iPhone6 and captured this beauty in panoramic made.
High levels of contrast can fool cameras into exposing the scene incorrectly, but shooters can easily overcome this by applying exposure compensation.
However sometimes your glass may not be able to encompass the whole scene, which is where the helpful panoramic format can come in handy. It can be difficult to correctly white balance an interior setting, especially ones that are reliant on various forms of artificial lighting, so remember to compensate accordingly in the White Balance menu or take a reading from a grey card. To shoot a structure as a silhouette during sunset, position the architecture between yourself and the sun. A church on a clear day may strike the viewer as pleasant but maybe a bit bland, revisit it when there’s a storm brewing overhead or a mist rising from the damp earth and the results can be altogether more intriguing.
Ask a guide to point out small yet interesting aspects that perhaps go unnoticed by the general public. Simply position yourself as near to the base of the building as possible and shoot straight up. Architecture is built on the principle of symmetry, so capturing this symmetry will ultimately reinforce the subject matter and hopefully strengthen the composition. I just held the phone up above my head as I walked under the dome of the South Carolina State House and clicked the shutter.
Democratization of photography has been a wonderful thing but throwing out the rules has lead to some problems as well.
Modern architecture (read: Anti-classical) is anti-perspective by nature purely and simply because it takes on this 4-dimentionallity completely and understands that when viewed in time, architects can not control the perspectives of a building. Another trick is to bracket shots at different exposure values (exposing one for the highlights, one for the midtones and one for the shadows) and later merge them in a dedicated HDR program (such as Photomatix).
Many compacts now offer a specific Scene mode for stitching together several shots in camera, but the same effect can be achieved post-shoot with dedicated panoramic software such as; as Hugin or PTgui if you are shooting with a DSLR.
Interior shots in older buildings tend to be more irksome because they traditionally feature small windows and doors – thus lack natural light. Buildings of architectural merit usually include focal points so try cropping in close on these for frame-filling abstracts.
If playing with perspective isn’t for you then stand further back and add a sense of scale to your image by incorporating everyday objects such as people, trees, transport and benches, etc. Discover the centre of the symmetry by placing your hand between your eye-line and construct your frame around this centre.


If you can afford it they do make ND filters that transition usually from 8 up to I’ve seen 400 but they are CRAZY expensive. If someone wants to help others with photography, it helps if they actually have a basic understanding of that genre. If you can afford it they do make ND filters that transition usually from 8 up to I've seen 400 but they are CRAZY expensive. Try using a tripod and executing a long-exposure and remember you could always utilise an ND filter to stop highlights being blown out when shooting in the day. If the foreground is too light set the exposure compensation to a negative value to darken it. Furthermore you may want to include repeated artefacts that are littered across the exterior, for example; intricate brickwork or chequer board windows. To retain detail throughout the scene plump for a small aperture (large f stop) such as f14, alternatively try throwing out the sharpness of either the foreground or background by choosing a large aperture (small f stop).
Alternatively break free of the cold and sterile straight lines and rectilinear angles and follow the principles of nature by including curves and circles in the form of shadows or reflections can help to soften the structure.
Classical architecture is the architecture of the academy, the architecture of arbitration, NOT the architecture of the classical period. I see portraits taken with short lenses and the same for products and though they are "cool' they distort the look of the person or thing. Alternatively you could use supplementary lighting, such as a diffused flash but be careful as this may rob the scene of its atmosphere and detail.
Use a telephoto lens to zoom in close and don’t forget a tripod to support those longer focal lengths. By the way the buzz in our community was you were there five years before they let you touch a camera. The author does indeed know what she is talking and I understand that this article is targeted for beginners and I found it very helpful.
Night shots can be very dramatic and atmospheric too, but remember to take them when there is still some light and colour left in the sky as this adds tone to the backdrop and help to illuminate details.
As before get into a good position and set your camera on a tripod and wait for the dazzling display of urban lights from windows, street lights, signs – all of these in their rainbow of neon colours will add to the ambience. She continues to discuss breaking free from that mold and advises to follow the principles of nature.
