Architectural Twilight photography takes advantage of different lighting factors in order to make a photograph special in ways not available with either natural or artificial light. Due to differing light levels during the twilight hours, a photographer achieves amazing lighting effects within any photograph.
Dusk offers a unique vision of the world. The light tones of objects take on a floating quality almost as if in another world. A camera captures this quality in a sharp yet realistic view. It offers depth of vision in details that stand out to the viewer.
When the light gets lower, details that are not normally available with natural sunlight appear in lower light. Outlines stand out more when light levels are lower. Backgrounds enhance the building, but the do not distract the viewer from the main subject.
Combination Of Natural Light And Artificial Lights
When photographing a building at dusk, it offers the opportunity to add artificial lighting. Using this method allows the photographer to highlight areas while maintaining a clear silhouette of the subject building. This presents the opportunity to have multiple highlights within a photograph.
Art Instead Of Science
Twilight photography is not a science. There is no strict guide as to when is the best hour or minute during dusk to take the best photo. Gauging the correct light takes an experienced photographer to find the perfect shot for each subject. It also depends on the natural light of the area. Photography in a place such as Tacoma and Seattle Washington, or Portland Oregon is very different from a desert area where there is little humidity. An experienced photographer needs to know their area and work within the available light parameters.
