Architecture Photography Tips


Tips to improve your architectural photography. You’ll learn the stylistic and technical fundamentals to help you take better photographs of architecture whether …


  1. Excellent video! I like how you cover the fundamentals of architecture photography with simplicity and stylistic presentation. I still love my Nikon D7100 with Tokina 11-20 2.8 (usually in the 14-20 range) and also use a Nikon 35mm 1.8 prime for detail shots.

  2. If you want to improve the quality of your photo's the time of day is important. Early morning of in the evening. There are apps that show you the right light and direction of the light.

    You can even use that app for information as you are creating a building, were is the sun coming up.

  3. Hey mate, I use a 5D Mark 4, got a 24-70 2.8 II IS and aiming at purchasing a 16-35 as well. Looking to get into real estate and architecture photography as well 🙂 Thanks for the tips!

  4. Hey great video. I liked the way it was edited and made easy to consume the information. A+
    Also liked that you didn't have or recommend super expensive lenses (that are awesome btw), but encouraged using what a person has access to at maybe a lower cost.

  5. Made the big jump from a 60D to a 5dsR after booking lots of jobs. This required me to upgrade all my glass to Tilt Shifts & L's. My next learning curve is learning 10-bit editing for publications.

  6. Wait, is photography needed in architecture? I'm only in high school and I don't really have a clue about what subjects do architecture students study. Is it needed? Or is it just to enhance your skills?

  7. what the hell, i was wondering if you took a long break or something because I hadn't seen any uploads in my sub box and i just realized my acc got unsubscribed hahahaha

  8. FYI – "DxO Photo-Lab" is excellent for creating rectified photographs suitable for use for publications and documentation. It's the best software I've found for correcting my photos when I've not been so careful levelling the camera on the tripod or not using the tilt-shift lenses.

    I recommend adding one of the 70-200 Canon series of lenses to complete your kit – they'll get you up close if you need a detail up close like a chimney cap or for architectural detail. It's a natural companion to the 24-70 you've already got.

    I have a different take on flat lighting – for documentation purposes (like in heritage work where the photo is acting like a drawing for notes etc.), an overcast (flat light) day is highly preferable, otherwise the deep shadows block detail and areas of the building that I want to see and potentially note up. For showing off built work in a publication or online,… yes, sunny and deep shadows create interesting and dynamic photos.

    Another great video!

  9. I have a cannon 1200D, im a total amateur so thank you for inspiring me to up skill!. Is my camera sufficient for arch photography? and also what lens can you recommend? thank you Eric! always look forward to your videos!

  10. Great video and content Eric. Thanks once again. I’m using my Pentax K2. I’ve had Pentax most of my life so stuck with it on the new gear. I do wish I could switch to the Canon kit though. It’s like working on an Oldsmobile when everyone else has a Chevy! Ha. Anyways, cheers my friend.

  11. Love your channel! Always inspiring and informative! It's very clear you have a passion to share the profession and your knowledge of it in many different aspects. I'm a bit of a late bloomer and will be starting school this fall as an adult student (37 yoa). I look forward to learning more from your prospective and sharing your videos with other friends and students. Thanks!

  12. A very interesting video, dear colleague. Personally, I get the most out of the camera of my cell phone. Sometimes I use a couple of accessories. However, the tips you mention work very well for a mobile device. Thumbs up!!!
