The usual approach to architectural photography is to capture the whole building, but if you take a closer look you’ll discover lots of interesting details and aspects of its design that make eye-catching subjects in their own right. On old buildings, ornate carved stonework details such as figures, faces, columns and cornices are common, while on newer buildings eye-catching patterns can be found in the bold, geometric design and repeated features – think of the hundreds of identical windows in a towering office block, or the dynamic pattern created by the external frame. Use a telezoom lens to home in on interesting details and fill the frame for maximum impact.
