And architectural photography is largely used in real estate business as well.
The following tips aim to not only improve the visual strength of your architectural photography, but also the stories that they can tell and it will also help your real estate clients.
1. Shoot in a variety of weather conditions and times of day:
People often tend to seek the most dramatic lighting to shoot architectural wonders, such as sunset hours when shadows are long and colors are bright. It only really encapsulates the building’s atmosphere at one specific point in time. Shooting a series of images during different times of the day, or even in various weather conditions, can help to paint a fuller story of the building’s relationship with its environment.
2. Prioritise good lighting:
Regardless of when you are shooting photographs, good lighting should always be a priority. Great architectural lighting helps to emphasise a space, a specific structure or atmosphere, and thus plays a big role in shaping one’s understanding of what is important in that specific architectural project.
