As you grow older, your body struggles to cope with the high impact activities you used to get up to, and so finding slower paced, but no less stimulating, hobbies and past times is important. Every year, more and more people take up architectural photography as a new and exciting hobby that involves little heavy lifting or rapid movement, making it ideal for those of us who aren’t as supple as we used to be.
The real joy of architectural photography is its convenience, as if something comes up at short notice and you have to cancel a trip out to your subject, it will still be there at the reorganised date. You can also plan it around nice weather, so no more missing out due to the inclement local climate.
Architectural photography can also provide a focal point for social activities and days out, allowing you to meet new people with similar interests, and giving plenty of excuses for trips away. Architectural photography is very inclusive as well, as it’s not necessary to use to use a state of the art camera, so it’s easy to introduce old friends too.
Of course people of all ages enjoy architectural photography, so you could even share in your favourite past time with your children and grand children, and what price can you put on that kind of quality time?
So what are you waiting for, get hold of a camera and get snapping. The basics are incredibly easy to master and who knows, you might be really good!
