To celebrate the first year of Google+ and the photography community, we’re doing a photowalk in downtown Atlanta.
Where and When:
We will meet at Centennial Olympic Park at 5:00 pm.
Photographers of all skill and levels are welcome. From beginners to pros. What if you only have a phone camera? YES! you too!
See you on Photowalk! Genia
My blog has been featured on Guide to Art Schools’ list of the Top Architectural Photography Blogs.
It’s funny: As soon as we have decided to remove the architecture portfolio from our portfolios and concentrate only on a product photography, we got such interest in our architecture photography:-)
Me and Alex like architecture, but for now a studio photography is much more interesting for us: concentrating only in a studio work we’ll have more chances to become “world best” in what we do.. and we both won’t accept less:-) But any way that’s cool!
Now Andre Vieler asked us to shoot exterior photos of the whole plant. We used a fork lifter to raise the photographer to a height where was much less perspective distortion. This works much better then any tilt/shift lens, I wish we could have such lifter for all of our architectural projects:-)
Here I’ll show you how I did a post-production, some parts of work flow. Here is the image before and after:

This post I would like to devote to my friend and a very talented person Anna Shafigina.

Mandir is the name for a Hindu place of worship and prayer. The word mandir is composed of two words, Man and Dir, whose meanings are mind and still, respectively. Therefore, a mandir is a place where the mind becomes still; a place where we experience peace from worldly problems. For centuries, the mandir has remained a spiritual, educational, social and physical cornerstone of Indian society.
It is very unusual to find something like this in Georgia. The place is truly beautiful and the marble carvings are amazing. Unfortunately we can take photos only from a distance. The rest beauty I’ll try to remember:-)
This article is for those who do not have tilt shift adapter or TS lens and still do architecture photography.
However, you can easily correct camera lens distortions using Photoshop or other photo software.
Below you can find list of software for lens distortion and perspective correction and tutorial how to fix it in Adobe Photoshop
How to correct perspective distortions of an image using the Adobe Photoshop Free Transform Tool.
All you have to do is:

I would like to share some examples on how we do a post-processing for architectural photography. Below you’ll see before and after images with explanation what we did and how. Sometime the result looks like HDR, but it is not a real HDR, where HDR processor compiles several images into one. The results often looks not real, showing non-existent lighting and colors. Which is OK for the Art, but unacceptable for a commercail photography.
