Incorrect camera angles can lead to strange distortions of straight lines.

Capturing an architect’s artistic design, revealing a construction’s purpose, showing manmade structures as part of the natural environment and recording historic styles are all aspects we can consider when shooting buildings.

These photos all did a grand job of interpreting each of these scenes from around the North East.

Take a look at them and see how the photographers have used light and context to show off the buildings in different ways.

Well done to everyone posting photos in the Northumberland Camera Club; there have been some absolute crackers recently.

If you haven’t already, please do come and join us to share your images. We love to see them, no matter how experienced or new to photography you are.
