Photography Weekly: Edition Twenty Two

Fri May 11, 2012, 11:33 AM

Photography Weekly Header created by TouchedD

"We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us." - Winston Churchill

The general theme this week is focusing on Architecture and in particular how to drum a bit more enthusiasm for noticing what's around us and capturing it successfully on camera. Architecture is profoundly unavoidable whether we like it or not! It's there in everyday life through work, socialising, living, politics and everything in between. The Architecture Gallery here on deviantART is vast and contains a great range of inspiring artworks.

Spotlight Deviant LeMatos

Here for just nine months LeMatos has already made an impact on the Architecture Community having been spotted and suggested for this feature by AnaNaszynska the Architecture Community Volunteer!

Tip of the Week

When photographing modern architecture you can get away with using a much more modern, abstract style. Experiment with wide angle lenses to produce extreme perspective, or photograph the building from unusual angles. Also, because modern buildings are often squeezed in very close to one another, you can crop in tightly on the building without making the photo feel unnatural.

Featured Tutorial

This week I want to share a fantastic tutorial on how to photograph Architecture brought to you by none other than Nikon!
