Architectural photography isn’t restricted to buildings’ fascia, so seek out exciting shots inside public buildings or places where photography isn’t restricted. Look for abstract patterns, interesting lines, shapes and contrasting textures.
Heading indoors is also an appealing option when bad weather sets in, so there’s no reason to curtail your shooting if you get caught in the rain. Usually there’s less light to work with indoors, so you’ll either need to increase your ISO to get a faster shutter speed, or use a tripod to keep your camera still. However, it’s not always suitable to use a tripod indoors – and you can be sure the security guards will tell you if it isn’t! Another challenge when shooting inside is setting an accurate White Balance (WB), because there’s usually a mix of light sources from daylight coming through the windows, halogen spotlights or tungsten bulbs. All of which produce a different colour temperature, so there may be areas of your image that are ‘warmer’ or ‘cooler’ than others. If shooting RAW, you’ll have more control over the WB when editing shots.
Look inside public spaces for unusual shapes and patterns to frame up on.
