Architecture is a very popular, yet specialized area of photography. This is likely due to the innately artistic nature of building design itself - older structures convey the grandeur of times past, while newly-built, modern structures show the progressive nature of current trends and construction technologies. 

Much like human portraiture, every building has a character that can be challenging to accurately capture in an image. Exploring the nature and form of a structure appeals to our creative tastes as photographers and allows us to experiment with a seemingly unlimited number novel and exciting compositional approaches.
