How to use interesting angles in architectural photography
Using unusual angles in building photography
There are occasions when the architectural photographer has to reach deep into their armoury of tricks to make an interesting photograph out of quite a dull or ordinary building. Often a stark rectangular or featureless building may require some more creative photography to enhance the its look, and by having a look around, the photographer may spot the odd interesting feature or detail which can be singled out in the photograph.
In the examples supplied, two of the images have been shot in black and white photography which can give a more 'graphicy' look, and in the staircase photograph,shooting looking upwards worked better in black and white than in colour. The Hitachi photograph uses a trick employed by many architectural photographers of shooting over the top of a car roof to hide blemishes and puddles in the foreground, and also to provide an interesting reflection.
It's always a good idea when stuck for ideas with architectural and building photography to try and get reflections and shadows in the picture somewhere to enhance the image.
