We’ve shared some of Anna Devís and Daniel Rueda’s work with you before (here too). But their work is too good not to share again! This duo shares a creative vision and turns ordinary things around us into creative photographic stories. They turn even the plainest, dullest façade into fun conceptual photos.
We shared with you some photos by Daniel Rueda and Anna Devis before. The Spanish photographer duo is fun, playful, and creative, and so is their work. While they often combine architecture with portrait photography, this series is a tiny bit different. Using nothing but some simple props, Anna and Daniel create conceptual photos to make you look twice and put a smile on your face.
An architectural photo series of the Goetheanum building in Dornach, Switzerland.
The Goetheanum is the world center for the anthroposophical movement. The building was designed by Rudolf Steiner and named after Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. It includes two performance halls with 1500 seats, a gallery and lecture spaces, a library, a bookstore, and administrative spaces for the Anthroposophical Society.
Architectural photography is possibly one of the most challenging types of photography there is. We see buildings every day of our lives, and most of them have been seen from just about every angle already. Seeing and photographing them in a new or interesting way isn’t easy.
This video from 30×40 Design Workshop was actually posted to YouTube a couple of years ago, but it’s not one I’d seen before and it offers some great advice for those wishing to pursue architecture photography.
Architectural photography is something that many of us try at some point in our photographic lives. I certainly have, on a number of occasions, although the results have never really been that good.
No doubt I’ll give it another go the next time I find myself in some beautiful town or city. But this time, I’ll have a few words of architectural wisdom from the guys at COOPH. In this video, they offer up seven tips to help us improve our architectural photography efforts.
A tilt-shift lens is most likely not the first one you’ll buy after the kit lens. But, a specialized lens like this can be a great problem-solver in many situations, or add a new dose of creativity to your shots. In this video, Jon Lorentz of Canon USA gives you some tips on using tilt-shift lenses, so you’ll get some ideas about how they can improve your photographic work.
Dallas-based photographer Nikola Olić travels the world and captures the buildings in a way that will make you stop, look and scratch your head. His architectural shots look like optical illusions, yet they were all created without digital manipulation. He chooses unique angles for his shots, combining them with carefully composed shadows and reflections. As a result, his photos will make the objects you’ve seen a hundred times look completely new and unique.
Spanish duo Daniel Rueda and Anna Devis are creatives, explorers, architecture lovers, and photographers. They travel the world and capture what they see in a creative and incredibly pleasing set of images. They shoot interesting architecture, but act as subjects in these photos too. This adds a unique perspective and creates a story that makes their photos even more appealing.
Their photos are pleasing tot he eye and somehow even soothing. When I first saw them, I couldn’t help but smile. Other than being wonderfully and carefully composed, they’re fun and spread the positive vibes.
Libraries are magical places and deserve to be treated this way. Way before we had all the human knowledge in the palm of our hands, that knowledge was located in huge buildings called libraries. As centers of data they were built to store massive amounts of book in an efficient way, as well as to allow the inquisitive mind access those books.
In an ongoing project, French photographer Franck Bohbot started photographing libraries in Rome and plans to expand to Europe, South America, Asia and North America. In his artist statement he shares that “This is about the places that we have learned and where the books stayed for decades. Paying tribute to the Architects. the light, the composition and the colors have to be coherent in all the series”
After picking up a camera for the first time in 2009, Peter Stewart wasted no time in assembling an impressive portfolio of images. Inspired by his travels and an urge to document them, Stewart quickly took to photography. In his series of photos, aptly titled “Stacked”, Stewart takes viewers on a captivating journey through public housing in Hong Kong–a city bursting at the seams with people.
Not your typical travel shots, Stewart’s eye focuses on symmetry and geometry topped off with a healthy dose of color theory. Primarily, Stewart shoots on digital, but says he has been experimenting with film and taking an interest in street photography, the latter of which is reflected in some of the images from Stacked.
