It is critical to be able to see the potential compositions for show-casing a building’s design and telling it’s story. Only after the big picture is taken in, and broken down into various compositions, can a photographer begin the process of photographing. This ability along with planning and patience will give you a successful outcome.
While listening to the various tour participants describe and discuss the design requirements and challenges faced for the project, I made about 85 unique photos to test various compositions using a handheld digital 35mm. The clients were presented with the 85 test photos and selected 23 test photos to be used as a guide for making the final photographs.
