Landscape and Architectural Photography
Landscape and architectural photography are ways of shooting film of the environment in which we live.
Landscape photography reflects the natural beauty as shown in photographs by color, foliage, mountains, rivers and lakes, oceans, trees, rock formations and other organic forms on the earth. Landscape photography can happen in the woods or at the beach, in the North Pole or in the desert.
Architectural photography is a way of showcasing buildings and the way they are constructed. Architectural and landscape photography are similar because they show the design of the world we live in. Architecture is frequently considered a work of art and can be dated back to the earliest civilizations. Both genre of photography record history and have their place in the world of photography and art.
Both types of photography do well being photographed by a wide angle lens. This allows the broadest scope for viewing while still keeping the integrity of the shot. In landscapes more is can be better in the way of aesthetics. With architectural photography, the wide angle is necessary for composition and continuity. The sense of line and contrast with shadows is critical for an accurate shot.
