In­side space

Digital Photo (UK) - - HOW TO SHOOT -

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.
