Useful tips for beginners for photographing buildings
Buildings, dwellings and architecture surrounds us in a big way and can be turned as subject of photography for taking some great shots. However, one has to know tips, tricks and techniques to become a reasonable architecture photographer.

Your own habitation and other places you go to, despite diversity of buildings, structure and architecture, some basic tips and techniques can be applied to most situations such as framing, composition, lighting, shift and tilt.

Although professional photographers use wide angle lenses for architectural photography, good photographs of any building, even your own house can be taken as subject of photography by using a basic digital camera.

Composing the building with surroundings by adding or detracting the things in the foreground and background of the building is a good idea. If the scenery can complement the picture of the building, look for it.

Look for the design elements in the building to give it a 'through look' through doors and corridors or 'detail look' through designs available in the building.

The natural elements present near to the building and external features of the building in the foreground can add extra charm to the shot.

Look at shadows and changes in light, other nearby structures for contrast, trees to work as frames, reflection features through water bodies, colour variations to add extra interesting and visual appeal to the pictures.
