Photography focused on architecture can be tricky. A pile of bricks is more interesting sometimes, but there are a few things to keep in mind that make architectural more exciting. Remember, when buildings are being designed, the focus is on structure and lines, which is where the focus of the photo should be. Sharp angles often make images more dynamic and pull people’s eyes around the photo. Another method to keep in mind is shooting things straight-on, taking a simple portrait of a building. Going to new, old or unusual areas can also make for unique images. Shooting a cityscape with multiple buildings creates a relationship among the buildings and can create leading lines to draw the viewers’ attention to a specific point.
