How to photograph INCREDIBLE ARCHITECTURE

What’s up everybody pit it’s Tuesday Wow the week’s really just fly by don’t they but we all know what that means welcome back to yet another two minute Tuesday so good to have you here in today’s topic we will be discussing architecture photography a couple of thoughts that I have when it comes to this beam and I live in a massive city that has tons a whole hell of a lot of badass architecture that I’ve shot throughout the years in many different situations and scenarios so we’re gonna take you through a little bit of that today and just show you what I think when it comes to taking pictures of

buildings and things of that nature so with that being said let’s throw two minutes on the clock let’s go first things first we want to check out the Vantage and the surroundings and do a little survey walk around the block check it out from across the street how does it look low how does it look higher up something that might look mundane on the street when you get up close looks absolutely phenomenal like this shot right here it looks like a UFO is coming down and just zip me away crazy getting that kind of wherewithal so that we know what we want a photograph is the first step to taking a great photo sometimes the best Vantage isn’t the most obvious Vantage that might just be head-on beauty of architecture is exactly that it’s beautiful these

people are artists that are designing these buildings it has a unique touch from the very person that designed it so we want to find that and show it off using your creative skills and talents something I like to say is don’t forget to look up beat the vets outside or just walk in the building and look up as well sometimes these designers don’t just make a crazy awesome looking building on the outside they make it awesome on the inside too like this building for instance I was going down an escalator I looked up and for NASA

headquarters yes please framing buildings using other buildings just like we talked about in the composition video using other buildings to frame the building that is the subject can be a super cool meta if you will way of approaching photography when it comes to buildings here’s an example right here of two office buildings sandwiching the CN Tower with a little sliver in between then it just fits rods just perfect lastly is capturing the close-up details of these buildings some of them can only be seen when you are super close maybe it’s the texture of some tiles that lie in one side maybe it’s the

whole buildings texture in and of itself that you can’t see from far away but when you’re close up you can which leads me to my next point which is the gear you’re going to use wide angles are obvious the wider the better that’s always good you want to have that if you’re doing architecture photography but maybe a macro lens is something you want to bring along too for those very details the stuff that nobody sees far away so have good mixed bag of

lenses I wouldn’t say just limit yourself to wide-angle play around lastly is perspective taking advantage of the lens Corrections and transform features of Lightroom can dramatically change for the better sometimes for the worse your photographs just hitting vertical on a photo like this will completely make that perspective straight on which looks great you get two blank spots in the corners but if we’re cropping this for Instagram we’re done thank you very much yes please so that’s it for me today guys I hope you enjoyed this video and the last thing I’ll leave you with is the best part of architecture

photography which is the replayability that it has I’ll use a video game term here but essentially that means you can just keep shooting it over and over and over with the change of seasons the change of weather and sunset sunrise maybe if it’s raining in the snow these buildings look great all year round so using your creativity and your personal style mixed with the surroundings constantly changing you have a great opportunity a great platform to practice and continue shooting awesome stuff so get out there with your camera go mess around have a great time hit that like button if you liked this video smash it if that’s if that’s something that you’re into subscribe if you aren’t already and and see you guys in the next video
