One of the most admirable features of the iPhone, is its camera power. If you love photography and you own an iPhone, then you have the power to take very good photographs of whatever you want. For architectural photography enthusiasts, even though you may not be a professional photographer, here are some tips you can use your iPhone to capture some quality snapshots.
Locate interesting architecture
To have very good architectural photos, you must find quality architecture to shoot. The good news is that Montreal architecture is available in different styles, sizes and shapes, and your duty is simply to find something unique that has a special appeal to you.
Get shots from different perspectives
With the innovation of the iPhone and modern architectural photography, you should not just stick to one perspective of photography. For instance, you can take a shot while looking straight up at the building while considering the sky up above. You can decide to include or exclude as much sky as you so desire.
Another method you can use to get a unique perspective with the iPhone, is to hold it up against a metallic or glassy building. Finally, you can frame your photo in a unique way such as taking advantage of negative or empty spaces surrounding your subject matter.
Take shots of the interiors
Architectural photography will never be complete without interior shots. Interiors are known to make great architectural photos, and you should go inside some of the buildings to get as many shots as you possibly can.
Windows are nice spots to take interior shots, since they make for a unique setting to place a subject in. Also, by looking through the windows, you can capture subjects beyond the windows, including neighboring buildings or even at ground level, thus enabling you to improve the composition as well as to draw attention to subjects outside the buildings.
Note that if you are shooting something of high importance, you may want to hire a professional photographer who has knowledge of lighting, composition, colour, and photo editing.
