If there is one aspect of architectural imagery that separates the 'men from the boys ' it is the creation of images that have perfectly straight horizontals and verticals. There are times when this is intentional but for the most part if your images are not exhibiting a true correction then it is time to correct this issue.
Most briefs I receive call for the obligatory dusk or night time image. But are we being fooled into thinking this is the best way to present an architectural image. Are we being brainwashed by the multitude of renders out there that show nothing but that golden hour of the day even though it is totally contrived and not readily achievable by the real thing.
Lets take a look at what makes a good dusk shot and why you should or should not include it in your thought process for briefing a photographer.
SHOOTING DUSK SHOTS
MY TOP 5
I got asked the other week, out of all the images I have taken to date, what would be my favourite top five. This posed quite a challenge given the fact there is over 19 years worth of images on the servers. I defined favourite images as not necessarily of architectural merit but imagery associated with unique circumstances or stories behind their creations.
So which one did I choose ?
