Play With Light and Shadow
Architecture is not just about tangible form. It’s also about the light and shadows, and these ephemeral conditions vary throughout the day to create a totally different image and feel. Usually, to minimize high contrast and washed out areas, it’s ideal to shoot in soft morning or evening light. However, with structures that are very simple in shape, midday sun can create some cool, high contrast shadows and graphic effects. Some of my favorite images are taken during this time of day, as the buildings cast dramatic slashes of diagonal shadows.
