In Photography, likewise the way it is in almost every profession, there are always moments when clients feel the need to call on the nearest available Photographer to cover a particular job. Be it the shoot of an interior space or just a family function, there is a common believe that once one can yield a camera and shoot, he can cover all things. Sadly, this is far from the truth.
The ability to shoot a portrait or even more popularly, cover an event, capturing the priceless moments and expressions on people requires a certain set of skills. The ability to capture the aura and feel of a space or capture the history of a building in a set of frames requires a different set of skills. And except a Photographer is multi-talented , one is not likely to find such a person with both skills. Hence, the need to contact a Professional Architectural Photographer, whenever the need arises to take photos of Architectural pieces.
Architectural pieces in this sense cover both interiors of spaces, Exteriors of Buildings, Showcasing Building Elements, exposing the expected experience within a space or a Place of Business and capturing the moments that tell a story for a Brand or Building. Some of the features a Pro looks out for during the course of the shoot are as follows:
Angle: A Professional Architectural Photographer will always look for the best angles to take pictures of a space, building or element. This is not only because photographers like to view in perspective, but also because the human eye appreciates a fresh angle to regular photos every time
Emotional Attachment: Creating an emotional attachment to a space or building element before one physically experiences it, is a feat only those with extensive knowledge in Architectural Photography can pull off. Be it a space, a location, a building or even a prospective home. If the photographer captures the aura and emotions around a space, it is usually love at first sight for the person at the viewing end.
Lighting and Highlighting: The excellent blend of natural lights as well as artificial lights is every Photographers headache. A professional architectural photographer is one who patiently stands by his angle and waits for the perfect time of the day to take the perfect shot. He also knows what leave out in the shot and knows not to cluster a frame.
Business owners, Architects, Interior Designers, Real Estate agent or simply anyone who has a need to showcase a space in its best possible representation would definitely need the services of a professional architectural photographer. Melony Photography is here to serve.
