Architectural Photographer Melbourne

Architectural Photography

Architectural photography is an art in itself.

Beautiful architecture should be complemented by beautiful images.

Exterior Architectural Photography 

This kind of architectural photography takes advantage of daylight or good sources of light (ex. moonlight, ambient light from street lights and exterior lights on buildings). An exterior architectural photographer prefers scenes with good landscaping around a building. He will want to blend a structure’s aesthetics with its environment. It’s pretty much like capturing a scene in its natural element or surroundings.

He will also like to take shots showing perfect and clean lines of a building or structure. The best way to do this is to take the shot against a clear sky.

The main aim of an exterior architectural photographer is to invite interest and curiosity among audiences.

Interior

Although Interior Architectural Photography will also find ways to use ambient lighting (from open windows and street lights, for example), there will still be a need to add more light to the scene. This can be achieved by using supplemental lighting, the most popular of which is the flash. This is why indoor architectural photography is considered controlled photography. The photographer takes control of the situation by adjusting the lighting.

In this architectural photography type, the most important element is space. This is the reason why those who take interior shots of buildings use wide-angle lens. They’ll be better able to capture the complete picture, including the aesthetic elements. A lot of them also choose to take clean, simple shots; they avoid the clutter. This greatly helps in establishing the focus and in highlighting the personality or character of a space or structure.

Large Shoot

Anything more complex than a basic, standard interior or exterior shoot will often require a site visit to fully understand the requirements prior to quoting. Interior and exterior shots work best under different ambient lighting. For this reason larger jobs that combine interior and exterior photography are usually quoted on a case by case basis.
