Architectural Photography: Construction And Design Manual
di A.Hausberg A.Simons
This title gives a well-grounded introduction to the necessary skills, techniques, and equipment while at the same time illustrating that the key to premium architectural photography is something far beyond the mere mechanics of focus, exposure, and composition.
After an introduction to the history and the various areas in which architectural photography is used, the authors, them- selves professionals working in the fields of building and docu- mentation, address the technical and design-related aspects. They discuss the best equipment for the job as well as such vital issues as focal length, perspective, white balance, filters, HDR and digital post-processing on the computer. The prac- tical section describes with clarity and precision just how the theory should be applied in practice.
