I came across this absolutely stunning time lapse film titled Cityscape Chicago by photographer Eric Hines and wanted to share it with you. I was so inspired that within 10 minutes I was searching for an email so that I could ask him for an interview. To my amazement, and despite being on the other side of […]Continue Reading

In this post I want to compare some of the common places architectural photography is used against their pixel size. This is useful for knowing what export sizes to use, but it also illustrates some of the trends occurring because of the internet, and also how many megapixels your camera needs to achieve them.
