, and my duty at Urban-and-Rural
is to feature submitted artworks. We decided to change the way we do it, and instead of themes & Featured folders, we decided to pick only one Member and make a little interview with them to get to know our members a little more and I'll feature amazing U&R photographers every second week!
Thank you so much Enigma087
for taking time and let me interview you!
#1 When did you start taking Architectural Photos?
First of all I wish to thank dekorAdum
for featuring me, it is indeed a big honour!
I've always loved and been fascinated by architecture so that's what I started to capture as soon as I held a camera really. But it really exploded after moving to London, UK two years ago. The diversity and scale of the buildings here is just breathtaking.
#2 What kind of equipment do you own for taking photos?
I use both Nikon and Canon (but predominantly Canon). When using Nikon it's the D60 and when using Canon it's either EOS 7D or 60D.
In terms of lenses I tend to use the Canon EF 24-105mm 1:4L IS USM and the Nikon AF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR DX.
#3 Do you have any favourite Urban & Rural or Architecture Photographers here on deviantART?
I'm quite a big fan of augustmobius
and the way he frames his pictures. Also the clarity and sometimes obscurity of his work, leaving the viewer to guess what it could be. And RedNihao
for the sheer momentum and scale of her pictures.
#4 What are your favourites from your own gallery and why?
I'd probably say
because of the quite incredible mosaic of the building and it's circular windows. I also like how the clouds help to draw attention to the building and create an atmosphere around it. Also
because it's one of the few B&W pictures I've taken. I think the B&W effect works nicely here and also the angle used to capture this beautiful building. Lastly I'd say
because of the perspective and point of capture. It's quite different from my other photos and I think in a good way.
#5 How or why did you start taking Architecture related photos?
Every time that I've seen a new building that's taken my breath away I've always wanted to capture it and keep it, or to experiment with angles and perspectives to sort of warp it and challenge myself to capture the most interesting angle of it. So when I got hold of a proper DSLR camera I just started to capture these monuments of engineering and I've been doing it ever since.
