An architectural photographer captures photos of buildings and structures with the aim of portraying them as accurately as possible. This may include the interior or exterior of any type of structure — from a residential home to the world’s tallest building. Most of us think that buildings are the only things that architectural photographers take pictures of. However, other structures also come under the architectural umbrella, such as bridges, monuments, towers, and windmills.
One of the main challenges with this type of photography is composing a shot properly. Technical problems need to be solved, such as finding the best vantage point to show mass and shape, or looking for the best way to depict spatial depth and clarity.
