Striking Architectural Photos Shot From The Perfect Angle

Striking Architectural Photos Shot From The Perfect Angle

Architectural (and real-estate) photography is one of the most challenging and technical types of photography. In most cases, the goal is to get a clean shot with perfect lighting showing the place at its best and "sell" it to the viewer. It usually means the photo will show the location in a wide-'normal' angle and without distortion. But there is a different kind of Architectural photography that shows buildings and rooms in a unique angle, creative lighting, and usually shows only small part of it. It's about making art out of architecture. Check out these great images showing just that!

16 different photographers!

And you think all of them used a 10 stop ND filter, frequency separation and Silver Efex 2?

How do you know??

Since he doesn't answer (apparently for the lack of any explanation) let's just consider this just as a troll comment! We move on ;)

Well processed indeed.
 

What is frequency separation?
