Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Photographing a skyscraper tower straight on, part of Architectural Photography: A Fine Art Approach.
- As I approach the angle keeps changing so…moving closer and starting to lose that 45 degree angle…come in and pretty soon I'm going to be straight on.…But that whole process I'm still shooting because…it's all fascinating to be honest.…I like everything I'm seeing so…that's a really exciting rare thing when changing your angle…it just stays consistently good…and you're just having a great time.…I want to emphasize safety here…crossing the street, I did not shoot from the street…even though the angles were good.…
So be really careful, know your surroundings…when you're looking for a viewfinder you're not…going to see what's going on so watch for traffic.…Also if you have a friend or a spotter…kind of watching as well that can be nice so.…What I'm going to do is I'm going to park now…nice and safe, I'm going to push on and really…get my straight on angle I'm looking for.…Wow, shooting straight on completely changes…the shot altogether, I fell like I'm watching a Tetris board…come down right now, it's just a lot of fun.…
