Cities are filled with fantastic photographic opportunities, whether that's focusing on the interesting characters going about their lives, or catching the brilliant details of architecture in buildings and skyscrapers.

The good news is that you can treat city scenes similar to landscapes, and the equipment needed is very similar. You can get great results with a DSLR or mirrorless camera with a kit lens, sturdy tripod, and a few filters. Cities have their own unique character, so wherever you are in the world you'll be able to head into town to catch some top urban scenes and get creative with your Canon EOS.

Adam is a professional landscape and street photographer based in Edinburgh, Scotland where he runs photography tours. He’s always wanted to photograph more of Glasgow so he leapt at the idea, and in the run-up to our shoot, he went on multiple recces to Glasgow. We met up with him and Kevin to learn to shoot the city in the beautiful golden hour at sunset and watch the city transform from day to night in the magical blue hour.
