  • Search for design elements – by opening our eyes and giving a more thorough look at the area, we can capture archways, staircases, doorways, windows, reflections, and a variety of plays on geometry that represent the vision of the architect.
  • Be aware of your surroundings – natural elements and external features can help bring out the beauty of any building. Keep an eye out for changes in light, adjacent structures that can create a contrast, trees that could make a frame around your building, or water features that can create a reflection.
  • Look up – using the worm’s eye perspective is one of the easiest ways to photograph taller buildings, indoors and outdoors, because it accurately represents the size and magnitude of the structure in the image. It is also a fantastic perspective to apply when your subject is a world-famous landmark and it is surrounded by people at all times.
