As part of Travel Photography, here our author has some good collection of Architectural photographs to share with us.
Architectural photography is an interesting subject and dealing with such a topic can be challenging and boring at the same time. Mostly, because it involves monuments and in animated structures. But as a photographer, it is up to you as to how do you make the image come alive and interesting. Architecture need not be boring. It can be one of the most interesting genres of photography one can follow. Having a background in the profession of design makes me naturally drawn towards this genre of photography.
Incorporate life in the Images
You can always use ways and means to make your images interesting by incorporating landscapes, human elements, natural surroundings whatever is available to enhance your image. If nothing is available you can also learn to play with light. Architectural photography is a subject where you will find hundreds of photographs of a specific location which look exactly the same. But I always try to make an image look different by using various methods or incorporating different elements in my Images which
help me own an image and make it solely mine.
Break the Rules
Maintaining symmetry and the angles used to capture certain shots are always helpful in creating a beautiful shot. You follow the rules and you break some of them. It is always up to you to as to how creative you can be to make your images come alive even though the structure has been dead for years.
Madhavi Jarmarwala, born in 1969, dabbled into photography since 2012. A happy soul and a creative heart with a degree in commerce ventured into design after her graduation and has been practicing Interior design since 1990. But venturing into photography, with a design background at the age of 43 was more of a dream come true
rather than a conscious decision supported by friends and family to keep the soul-satisfying creative pursuits alive. Travel photography is a subject close to her heart after traveling and capturing various places with her lens within and outside India. She is very passionate about photography along with the many other hobbies she pursues to keep her creative instincts alive.
