Composition, Capture, and Digital Image Processing
Architectural photography is more than simply choosing a subject and pressing the shutter release button; its more than just documenting a project. An architectural photograph shows the form and appeal of a building far better than any other medium. With the advent of the digital photographic workflow, architects are discovering exciting new opportunities to present and market their work.
In this book, author Adrian Schulz-both an architect and a photographer by training-uses real-world projects to teach you how to:
Capture outstanding images of buildings, inside and out
Choose the right equipment and use it effectively
Compose architectural shots
Work with ambient and artificial light
Process images in an efficient workflow based on Adobe Photoshop

Moreover, architects themselves will find this book motivating and inspiring.
