Parliament Buildings

I looked at my email on Blogging 101, then headed off to check what theme was on the daily post (well it was Places when I checked at 8am GMT this morning!
), I then headed over to my email for Photo 101 and when I saw that it was on architecture, I had a little jump for joy, as I knew I could do a post to incorporate all three 🙂 All these photos were taken whilst my family was on holiday in Canada last year visiting my relatives.

The brief for Photo 101 was “”Study architectural forms, and also train your eye to look for shots that will translate well in black and white.”

I have taken quite a few photos of architecture since I started shooting in digital, it is not the genre that I feel most comfortable with, mainly I think due to lack of practice, but that does not stop me taking photos 🙂

What is your preference, do you prefer these in black and white or colour, do my conversions work? (all of these were processed in Lightroom). I would LOVE to know what you think.

I have a few sites that I bookmarked as of interest on architectural photography, so thought I would share three of them here as I know it is something I would like to practice. After all there is architecture all around us and the UK has some very old examples as well as new for me to practice on:

  • Photoblur – I loved the abstract nature of the photographs here and the 10 tips are very good.
  • Exposure Guide – some good tips on architecture as well as other genres
  • Light Stalking – a nice article with some good points
