This semester I am taking an architectural photography class at the Boston Architectural College where I taught last semester. I opted to sit out from teaching this semester with Baby Sabbe due to arrive directly in the middle. So far the class is amazing and I am hoping to learn enough to save myself a few bucks by shooting some of my own recent projects. The first class we spent some time analyzing other architectural photographer's websites as our instructor pointed out the good and the bad. Here is a little bit about what we discussed.
The photographer behind all of these images is the very talented Jim Roof. If you have a project in Georgia you should definitely look him up...he is good.
1. Again, all the lighting is perfect.
2. The sky compliments the lighting and allows the focus to stay on the design, not the sky.
3. The people give the image much needed scale.
4. The ability to capture the gondolier in motion gives the shot life.
1. This shot is awesome.
2. The angle, with the fountain lines curving up to the building, give this shot visual motion.
3. The angle also pulls from vertical alignments from buildings beyond, implying the building was not just designed to be anywhere, it was designed to fit into this exact context.
4. The fountain reflects the architecture, creating a double image.
