Architectural Photography Tips: A-Frame Studio

With longer days and warmer weather, summer is a perfect time to explore Ontario’s architectural treasures, and Doors Open Ontario provides the perfect excuse to get your camera (or smartphone!) out and capture the beauty of Ontario’s built heritage – both contemporary and historic.

To help you capture that perfect shot during your next Doors Open excursion we asked some of Ontario’s architectural photographers – the talent behind many of the photographs featured on this blog - to share some tips and tricks. During the next few weeks we will be sharing their advice as part of a blOAAg mini-series on architectural photography!

Today’s tips come from the Toronto/New York based photography studio A-Frame Studio, founded in 2003 by Ben Rahn. Ben has been photographing architecture and interiors for more than 20 years and founded A-Frame Studio out of a desire to combine his love of design with his keen photographic eye. Since then, his work has been recognized internationally and has appeared in a variety of publications. Ben enjoys being awake earlier than the rest of the world and is happiest on top of dangerously-tall buildings, so his career choice is a perfect fit!

From the Photographer:

Shoot when the light is best. The higher in the sky the sun is, the harsher your shadows will be. Usually early morning and mid-evening will have the best light, so go early, or stay late.

Think about interesting vantage points. Photographs are often more interesting if they're not shot from standard eye-level. Can you stand on something? Can you drop down three feet?

Walk all the way around the building. Most buildings have a main view that's seen over and over, but there can be beauty in the unexpected.



About Doors Open Ontario

Every year from April to October, as part of Doors Open Ontario, communities across the province celebrate their built heritage - both historic and contemporary - by opening the doors of some of Ontario’s greatest architectural treasures to the public – many of them for the first time ever. These unique community events are a great opportunity for residents and visitors alike to explore our province’s rich built heritage, and provide the perfect excuse to get your camera (or smartphone!) out and capture the beauty of Ontario’s architecture.

Heading out to a Doors Open event in a community near you? Share your pictures on Twitter and Instagram with us using the hashtag #OntarioArchitecture!
