Twilight Photography by an Architecture Photographer

An architecture photographer creates dynamic images understanding the designs and then electing the right angle that best portrays a building along with critical lighting. It is the light that determines the essential components of fine architecture photography. Buildings appear dramatic when photographed at dawn or dusk. City lights, landscape lighting and lighting on structures create visually exciting image and separate it from the surroundings. When shooting at dawn or dusk, the sky becomes deep cobalt blue.

An architecture photographer with twilight photography takes control over the “not so perfect” weather condition. If the structure faces north or there isn’t sufficient light during the day time for the cloudy sky, then the building must be photographed during that time of the year when there is no north light. A mundane building looks dramatic while shot at this time.

An architecture photographer utilizes this technique to convey the atmosphere of a property like a hotel or a resort. This especially works in areas with active “night life”, fire pits, exotic landscaping, Jacuzzis and lit swimming pools. Photographing during the twilight adds excitement and life that offers your hospitality clients maximum visual impact for their advertisement and marketing.

Technique of photography for an architecture photographer particularly changes when a building has glass wall curtain, enabling one to view the interiors from outside. At times a building can have its own exterior lighting that creatively illuminates the exterior accentuating the design.

Twilight architectural photography needs to be well planned to make the most of the exposure time that lasts for a maximum of 10 to 15 minutes. A photographer determines the circumstances (such as heavy congestion or traffic in a busy city) and photographs at dusk or at dawn. In case of shooting at dawn, an architecture photographer makes necessary arrangement at least one hour before sunrise. The photographer ensures that the building manager makes all the arrangements to ensure outside as well as the inside lights are on.

A sturdy tripod becomes necessary for dusk photography, as it requires long exposure. A photographer uses longer exposures in creative ways like letting the people or moving cars blur in case where the traffic or people are in view. However, the professional photographers also ensure that the blurring effect does not become distracting for their clients. Moreover, they ensure that blurred effect adds to the overall composition and in no way over-power the impact of the interiors or the building.

As you can see, a professional architecture photographer has every eye for detail to bring out the best from a picture and add life to the images. So, if you want to hire an architecture photographer for advertisement or marketing of your property, make sure to conduct background check about their experience before pressing them into service. You will be amazed to see how the overall beauty of your architectural building improves with a professional touch. You can look into the profile of photographers to choose the right one to shoot your property.
