Architectural photography lens choices
Lens choices for architectural photography
How lens choice and lighting makes a difference
There are quite a few lens tests and reviews on this site, which tend to be quite technical.
It’s perhaps worth noting that the collection covers recent lens reviews and does not include Keith’s two favourite lenses for architectural work, the TS-E17mm and TS-E24mm.
Lens choices make a difference
Covering Canon’s recent new tilt/shift lenses, along with wide and ultrawide shots (Samyang XP 14mm and Sigma 12-24mm) Keith looks at some of the differences that lens choice gives you in architectural photography.
From a simple 55mm lens with shift…
Through to 12mm
All the way to fish-eye
Of course, just because you can produce a particular type of shot doesn’t mean that you should.
The article also has links to all the individual lens reviews that the photos come from.
