22 Excellent Examples of Architectural Photography

Architectural photography is the taking of photographs of a structure from unusual angles. When shooting contemporary architecture you can get away with using a much more modern, abstract style. Experiment with wide angle lenses to capture the image of the building from unusual angles. Lighting is a crucial part of architectural photography. Of course we have no say over the position and orientation of a building. Choose your time of day carefully. Most experts says, direct light is not often interesting, oblique light improves contrast. Dawn and dusk light are beautiful times of day. A lot of buildings lend themselves to twilight or evening views if there is sufficient interior and exterior lighting. We are more mobile now than ever before, yet we can never attend physically all that is within range visually. To maintain our fascination with architecture, our eyes search for not just what’s on the skyline, but the continued promulgation of pictures of structures in a visually-rich surroundings.

    This is a great compilation! The shot of the Eiffel Tower is superb.

    However, for the image of the Louvre, it would have been nice to see the surrounding buildings outside of the Pyramid (they are really dark in the image chosen in this compilation). To see an example of what I mean, see my shot of the Louvre and the Pyramid.

    Great combination of architecture and photographic genius…..A great picture of the Eiffel Tower….I like the way the photographer has taken the photographs of the taller structures from the base upwards….This creates an effect of how a child would look up to these tall buildings….Thanks for this awesome post….

    Nice compositions. But the title of this post shouldn´t be Architectural photography, but Architectural pictures, because all of them use retouching and effects. The only “pure” photography technique is the use of perspective and different lens.
