, 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!
#1 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.
#2 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.
#3 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.
#4 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.
#5 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.
