, 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 Einsilbig
for taking time and let me interview you!
When did you start taking Architectural Photos?
First of all: Thanks for the feature dekorAdum
I started a year ago with capturing architectural photos. First I captured buildings as a whole, the classical way, but for the last six months I have developed in taking abstract/detail architecture images. In the meantime I guess I have discovered my own style, at the borderline of architecture and abstract photography.
What kind of equipment do you own for taking photos?
Basically I use 3 lenses for my photography – a 100mm Tokina Macro (for architectural details), a 35mm Walimex pro (I use it rarely for architecture images, for example if iam too close with 100 mm or if the light conditions are bad (f 1,4)) and a Canon´s wide angle lens if I want to capture classic extern architecture pictures. I feel good prepared with these 3 options.
Do you have any favourite Urban & Rural or Architecture Photographers here on deviantART?
There are a lot of great photographers here on deviantART, to name only two members: If you want to learn something about architecture detail and composition EintoeRn
is worth a look, ChristianRudat
gallery offers very diverse urban images. I hope you are OK with some advertisement: If you enjoy Architecture, Urban & Rural, feel free to discover our weekly feature at
. And of course, scroll through this group´s gallery.
What are your favourites from your own gallery and why?
I have two on-going series. The “Angle Studies”, whereby I like
the most and the “Urban Shapes and Colors” collection with
. In the first one I really like the infinite look and the symmetrie. I really have the feeling that I created something not so often seen. The second one was tricky to capture. It took me about an hour to take it, because I had to study the shadow play and how to compose the lines. All in all iam very satisfied with the result.
How or why did you start taking Architecture related photos?
I cannot name a certain cause. I live in Berlin, so Urban elements are part of my daily life and in the last months I got many positive feedbacks related to my compositions and minimalistic executions and I guess that has driven me to specialize in this field of photography.
