Architectural photography

posted on 19th of march, 2009

I like to shoot buildings and architecture. Maybe the main reason why I like to take photos of buildings is that I am a civil engineer.
I'm on constant prey.

I like old buildings and facilities, I like construction sites, I like new buildings and facilities, ...
I must admit that I like old buildings more. But psssst...
On the photo on the right is my favourite building. The Torpedo launch pad station in Rijeka. Very interesting and old building. Also very ruined and devastated. I like the uniqueness and history of this building so it became my favourite "building model".

Although my DT portfolio doesn't show much, but when I find "interesting" building I like to play with shooting angles. Mostly I use my wide angle 10-22mm lens. Also I use the 50mm a lot. Wide angle one gives me curves and a lot of playable material (material to play with).

I shoot and upload most of frontal shoots of buildings and facilities like these one.

Do you find this kind of photography interesting? What do you think of my uploaded examples?

Thanx to everybody in advance.

About me

Photography is my hobby and battery charger for everyday hard work on faculty of civil engineering. I discovered my love for photography several years ago. Since then I try to enjoy in every shot I made with my Canon and Pentax. Mostly I shoot digitally but here and there I use Kiev-4A camera. A while ago I started to play with vector illustrations.
