2. Make use of leading lines in the building to draw the viewer’s eye into and around the photo.

4. Explore the interiors of buildings to find interesting light and architectural features.

5. Capture small details such as ornate features, lights, textures and windows.

8. Include a human subject to add a sense of scale and an interesting storytelling element.

9. If you can’t fit the entire building into the frame, try using a wide angle lens or take a panoramic shot using the camera’s Pano mode.
