Light the way
As with all photography, light is always an important factor, and more so in architecture. Be sure to take the direction of light into account when capturing a composition. The direction can help increase contrast, shadows, textures and reflections.
Be wary as high levels of contrast can trick your camera’s sensor into exposing the scene incorrectly. If you are shooting on a particularly sunny day, consider using an ND filter to avoid your shots from being blown out. Likewise, shooting at dusk or night time is another gateway to some truly magnificent shots. Shooting at dusk will give your buildings a beautiful splash of colour, while at night, you will be able to make use of artificial lights to bring your composition to life.
