Architectural photography has kept me busy lately. I particularly enjoy working with a mixture of artificial and natural light to emphasize structure and form.
There are many similarities with landscape photography with regards to planning and timing. To help produce the best work it pays to be flexible with regards to when the shots are taken. It is often worth waiting for the weather and time of day to coincide to show the building at its best.
Specialist equipment such as tilt-shift lenses, a vehicle platform and camera extension pole all help but in the end there is nothing like being there at the right time and working with the light and structure.
