Shooting during the golden hour (shortly after sunrise or before sunset) provides soft, warm light that enhances the texture and details of architectural elements.
Weather and Sky
Consider the weather conditions and the appearance of the sky. Blue skies or dramatic cloud formations can add interest to architectural shots.
Symmetry and Composition
Pay attention to symmetry and composition. Use leading lines, framing, and balanced compositions to highlight the architectural features.
Correcting perspective distortion, such as converging verticals, is crucial in architectural photography. This can be achieved by using tilt-shift lenses or corrected in post-processing.
