The N-Photo experts say…
ideas you can build on
Drag the shutter
For this you need your D-SLR, a tripod, a remote release and an ND filter. Look for movement in your scene, then line up your frame to exploit it. Set a longer shutter speed and use the ND filter to avoid over-exposing the shot.
Understanding leading lines, the rule of thirds and framing are fundamentals of photography, and are essential in architectural photography. Look for shapes in the scene in front of you to pick out.
Black and white
We recommend shooting in RAW, but using the Monochrome Picture Control. That way you can see what the monochrome image looks like as you shoot, but all the colour data will be in the RAW files when you process them.
If it’s appropriate and you can time it right, include vehicles in your architectural images. A plane can lift a dull sky, and a bus at night can create interesting light trails. Learn what looks good where.
