about this item

The goal when photographing historic buildings, whether an abandoned railway shed or a stunning and storied castle, is not just to capture a compelling image, but to create a lasting record of the building’s design and character. But much more goes into creating a successful photograph than is sometimes apparent. Behind the camera, the photographer must have a trained eye to distinguish a building’s character-defining features. To share what they see and feel, the photographer must also master the camera, composition, and light.
           
Steve Cole draws on more than forty years of experience photographing historic buildings, sites, and monuments. Unlike many photography manuals, Photographing Historic Buildings takes a simple and straightforward approach. Light is among the most important elements of the craft of photography, and Cole takes readers through the basics with advice on the best use of both natural and artificial light. With nearly five hundred illustrations, he also instructs readers in how to arrange elements of composition to create meaning in their photographs, as well how to apply the many technical components of photography to the best advantage.
