The building is too ordinary. What should I do?


No matter daily records or travel clock in, we will use our mobile phone to shoot some beautiful buildings, but when we look back at the mobile phone photo album, we find that none of them is satisfactory

.

The composition, shooting parameters and timing of the photo are all OK

.

At this time, you can’t help but doubt yourself? If you have such a problem, please click on the three small points in the upper right corner of the article and share the article first, because this is a pain point that many people will encounter

.

Good morning, I’m Amun

.

Now I’ll share with you through some cases: how to get rid of mediocre architectural photos? ▌ skillfully using light, shadow and light is the soul of photography! Different light and shadow effects can create different picture atmosphere, so can architectural photography

.

Most of us only pay attention to the building itself when shooting buildings, ignoring the changes of architectural form under different light irradiation

.

If you are good at observation, you will find that “light” will form different picture artistic conception   one    Observing the reflection of buildings and the combination of virtual and real is a common shooting technique in photography, and the combination of virtual and real in architectural photography will add more imagination space to the picture

.

For example, in the following photo, the architectural reflection in the water is virtual, and the ship in the water is concrete, forming the linkage of virtual and real

.

If you master the shooting method of combining virtual and real, you will find that architectural photography has many angles you haven’t taken before

.

  two   Observing the light and shade contrast of buildings to create conflict is also a common shooting skill in photography

.

I usually shoot buildings and prefer to look for the light and shade contrast of buildings

.

This light and shade relationship will bring a stronger visual impact

.

For example, in the following photo, if the dark part is rich in details, it will appear messy visually and the theme is not prominent enough

.

By reducing exposure compensation to highlight the strong light dark contrast in the building, the structure of the photo will be more concise and the theme will be more clear

.

  three   Observing the mirror light and shadow in life can turn two-dimensional photos into three-dimensional space

.

In our daily shooting of buildings, we should pay more attention to all objects with mirror reflection in life

.

If we observe the buildings from another angle, we will find more storytelling shooting perspectives

.

For example, the photo below was taken in the alley of Shanghai

.

In the past, the people living in the alley were either rich or expensive

.

In order to facilitate the entry and exit of carriages, the road surface of the alley was much wider than that of the ordinary alley, but now cars are parked on both sides

.

As time goes by, the red wall is reflected on the car, adding a story to the picture

.

Architectural photography is not only a concrete expression

.

Through association, we can get rid of the mediocre shooting perspective and expression

.

  four   Building symmetry is the most favorite beauty of the Chinese people

.

Looking at Chinese architecture, whether it is palaces, temples, pavilions, pavilions and gardens, all have the beauty of symmetry

.

In addition to the symmetrical beauty of the building itself, how can some asymmetric buildings create the symmetrical beauty? In fact, a symmetrical architectural shooting can be presented by using our mobile phone screen

.

For example, the following two photos are actually taken by using the reflection of the mobile phone screen

.

A passing aunt saw this little skill and learned it..

.

▌ using vegetation to build buildings is fixed, so how to “seek ten thousand changes in the constant” in shooting buildings? The colors of vegetation are different in different seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter, and these vegetation can set off the theme well

.

We can photograph buildings according to the shape of vegetation

.

For example, the straight trees below echo the shapes before and after the straight buildings are formed

.

With the central composition, the buildings and trees will look more tall and straight

.

In addition to photographing the shape, we should also pay more attention to the details of the building

.

The following picture is taken at Lingyin Temple in Hangzhou

.

The buildings of Lingyin Temple are all symmetrical temples

.

If you shoot a big scene, it is difficult to shoot personality

.

Just behind the tile roofed house, a maple tree sprouts its head, so you use telephoto to record it

.

The tile roofed house, maple leaves and the mountains in the background form a picture full of Chinese style

.

Key points: learn to observe the relationship between buildings and surrounding vegetation! ▌ element echo often some students ask me how to improve my photography eye? My suggestion is to watch more street photography, such as global street photography

.

The echo of elements in street photography will give us a lot of inspiration

.

This method has been tried repeatedly in my architectural photography

.

Everyone can use frame composition

.

The frame of the following photo is a scaffold being built, which is not so important in the picture, but the tower in the distance makes this photo have another meaning

.

The city is expanding, but we should always remind ourselves to protect ancient buildings

.

This is the logic behind this photo

.

” “Combination of ancient and modern” is also often used in architectural photography

.

Each city has new tall buildings and well preserved ancient buildings

.

The following picture highlights the relationship between the two towers, one high, one low, one new and one old, using a relatively simple composition

.

There are many echoes of elements

.

When night falls and the lights are on, many people are recording the city scenery

.

But I noticed a pair of trousers hanging on the balcony that had not been taken away by the owner, which echoed with the buildings on the bright lights in the distance in this time dimension

.

Therefore, if architectural photography is not ordinary, it should be taken in combination with the elements of life, which will add some stories to our architecture in addition to aesthetic feeling

.

▌ looking for words, our third point is that the echo of elements is abstract

.

Readers need to associate after seeing this photo in order to resonate with the author

.

Then there is a simpler way to resonate, that is, to find the echo of words

.

Various advertising slogans can be seen everywhere in life

.

We pay more attention to these words when shooting, which echo with the buildings

.

For example, the city slogan is connected with the three tallest buildings in Guangzhou, which go hand in hand to “build a civilized Guangzhou”

.

Another example is the pursuit of excellence, which echoes with the crane behind

.

Guangzhou is making progress

.

It is also very important to lay a solid foundation for the city

.

The key of text echo is observation, and then it is photographed in a picture through dislocation

.

▌ using humanities is equal to street photography, and street photography as we understand it has a certain story

.

Since it is a story, we can observe the relationship between people in different industries and urban architecture

.

For example, Guangzhou is developing rapidly

.

You may think of technology, e-commerce and foreign trade industries

.

However, most office workers have the most call records every day

.

They are an indispensable group in the city

.

They enjoy the cool and rest in their spare time in the afternoon

.

They may not be noticed, but it is because of them that they support Guangzhou behind them

.

There are many similar combinations

.

We can use the idea of street photography to shoot buildings, skillfully combine different characters with urban landmarks, so as to make architectural photography more warm

.

Architectural photography not only records the beauty of lines, but also properly integrates some imagination and elements in life, which will make the content of architectural photography fuller and get rid of the mediocre architectural punch in photo.
