"The subject matter of the architectural photographer is the structure of buildings, both inside and out, for which there is a wide variety of demands. As a perfectionist art form, architectural photography is a methodical process demanding patience and clinical precision from its practitioners, combined with an experienced understanding of the potential and effects of natural light." "Architectural Photography approaches the subject from the perspective of the architect, including a brief history of architecture and a glossary of architectural terminology. Having outlined the underlying theories and applications of camera movements, filters, composition and light (both natural and photographic), it takes you off on assignment. A step-by-step approach guides you through the shooting sequence, and two chapters are devoted to creative possibilities and practical solutions to typical problems. The conclusion of the book is an analysis of the results of ten successful published assignments, examining them in terms of both photography and graphic design."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
