Architecture photo contest

Architecture is a beautiful art form that’s easy to miss, simply because it’s a part of our everyday lives. This weekend, we want you to take a moment to appreciate the beautiful buildings, bridges, and structures around you. Try your hand at architectural photography, and enter the contest with the hashtag #wapArchitecture.

As you observe the architecture around you, you’ll probably find a lot of interesting symmetry and lines. Pay attention to these elements as you compose your images, as well as to the way that light and shadow affect your shots.

When photographing architecture, we tend to pay attention to the grandeur of what we are photographing, but don’t forget to capture the details—things like an interesting pattern of tiles, an ornately carved door frame, or a spiral staircase are beautiful details that can easily go unnoticed.

Once you’ve captured your image, submit it to the contest by adding the hashtag #wapArchitecture!
