Let’s be honest removing/adding objects in our work is time-consuming and complex and the available tools in Photoshop were… not so good. But that might be a thing of the past thanks to Photoshop’s new tool: Generative Fill. The AI narrative is everywhere right now, however you needed third-party programs like DALL-E to really integrate AI capabilities into our workflow (check out Kyrre Sundal post on the topic ).
When it comes to capturing bold, dramatic, luminous architectural images, Brandon Barré is in a league of his own. Known for photographing some of the swankiest projects on Earth, Brandon doesn’t just rely on fancy spaces to create his incredible photographs; his perfect composition, dramatic lighting and meticulous staging and attention to detail results in images that we can all draw inspiration from.
This week’s featured project takes us into the heart of Madrid to a restaurant called La Maruca de López de Hoyos by ZOOCO. Showcasing this gorgeous space is architectural photographer David Zarzoso. David has done a lovely job showing off the intricacies of this space, particularly the shapes and materials the design is centered around.
Seems like virtually everyone talks about how there is an abundance of content creators today, how there is more creative work than ever, and how everyone is a photographer, a writer, a curator (don’t get me started on how that word is misused), a musician, whatever.
Felix Speller’s work has an undeniably distinct quality, where you can look at any of his photographs and think “Aha! This is a Felix Speller!” Felix is back for another Project of the Week with another beautiful space by Child Studio. Just as with Felix’s past Project of the Week offering at Maido Sushi, you can expect to see a restrained color palate in these photographs, filled with gorgeous custom cabinetry, glass block, and just the prettiest lighting you’ve ever seen.
For some time now, it has become popular to claim that Nikon has overslept the transition from DSLRs to mirrorless cameras, and some even predict the end of the company. Nikon, with the introduction of the well-received Z9, showed that they still know how to build great cameras for professionals that even set new standards in certain fields.
Architectural photographer Duccio Malagamba has been photographing the built world for over 30 years. In his 30 years of professional work, Duccio has collaborated with an impressive client list like Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron, and Rafael Moneo.
Today we are headed to another gorgeous lakeside retreat, this time photographed by architectural photographer Ulysse Lemerise. Ulysse’s photographs sport a gorgeous quality of light and thoughtful compositions and are a joy to view, so lets get right to it!
Produced for more than 20 years, Swiss-made Alpa cameras are renowned for their precision, construction quality and high price. They are designed to work with medium format digital backs and specifically mounted lenses from Rodenstock and Schneider.
It’s very difficult to start telling a story when you don’t really know where to start. Maybe it was in 2015 or 2016 when I first came across the visual designs, which immediately piqued my interest. An incomparable building was visible on them, one that I had never seen anywhere before, let alone in Hungary — it was a rendering of the future Hungarian House of Music.
James Brittain is an architectural photographer working from studios in Montreal, Canada, and London, UK. Today we’ll be taking a look at James’s gorgeous photos of Atelier Carle’s CAPO. We’re mixing things up for today’s POTW format and sharing what James and I talked about regarding this shoot in Q&A format.
Fujifilm’s GFX series cameras are great equipment for architectural photographers. We can argue whether this is a true medium format, but it is certainly a piece of equipment used by an increasing number of professionals. There are more and more interesting lenses available for this system, and many readers are surely waiting with bated breath for the release of the shift lens announced by Fuji.
While (clearly) an A&D photographer isn’t going to use flash for every single shot, many professionals have it at their disposal if a particular composition calls for it. Yes, off-camera flash is not the easiest thing to learn, but there’s definitely a simple way to initially approach it.
Ready to feast your eyes on an absolutely gorgeous project? Today’s POTW takes us to the waterfront of the Tagus River to the Expo ‘98 Portuguese National Pavilion designed by Alvaro Siza for the 1998 Lisbon World Exposition. Warsaw based photographer Nate Cook has photographed this building marvelously!
After 10+ years of working in the industry, I have tried a lot of different processes for winning jobs. There is always a lot to learn from the sales process and while I have not figured everything out, I wanted to share some things that have helped me get to where I am today.
Architectural photographers are probably following the news in the small specialist geared head market with interest. In a space that has been dominated by Manfrotto and Arca Swiss for, as far as I can tell, decades, the Chinese brand Leofoto emerged a few years ago.
