Successful architectural photographs require more than a good camera and maybe using a tripod. They are the result of a creative collaboration between photographer and client and recognition of qualities of light and composition on the part of the photographer. Collaboration in the form of pre-production planning should include a site preview so that a precise list of photographs can be created and the logistics of the project discussed. Landscaping and "housekeeping" items can be identified and corrected prior to the actual shoot. I also like to take preview photographs at this time, which allow me to check elements of lighting and composition. These are shared with the client so that final views are clearly specified. Final photography can then be scheduled for the optimal time of day and lighting conditions. After capture, a set of professional post-production steps will fine-tune captured files into beautiful final images for your use.
