Architectural photography, whether interior or exterior, relies heavily on
a photographer’s technical abilities — but it doesn’t stop there! An
artful eye helps create the best composition and capture the moment and
emotion of a space.
The challenge of bringing all these elements together is what makes this
kind of photography so rewarding.
Understanding how these images will be used is of the utmost importance.
From the high-resolution of a magazine cover to the squareness of
Instagram, the final product will play a part in decisions around
composition and design.
My personal preference when shooting interiors is starting with natural
light, although the “right light” is often achieved by adding light to a
room. Controlling the light can also help improve the mood, feel, and
contrast of an image, and even bring out colour and detail to select areas.
