    Architecture photo techniques book. Which one?

    Whether McGrath's book will be useful to you or not depends on what kind of architectural photography you want to do. I bought a copy; his book is mostly about taking color photos of newer buildings using lots of artificial light if necessary. I sold the book because I am interested in taking pictures of historic buildings in B&W using available light.

    I do not know who McGrath's clients are, but would gues that they include architests and colored-glossy magazines.

    Good luck.

    OK- one more suggestion. The absolute master of professional architectural photography is Ezra Stoller. His book "Modern Architecture" is a beautiful collection of his best work with insights into his process. It's not focused on nuts and bolts- but it is an inspiration.

    For learning about lightening, I read and found Light-Science & Magic : An Introduction to Photographic Lighting by Paul Fugua, et al. 2nd ed. to be excellent. Focal Press; ISBN: 0240802756. Amazon has sample pages too. Cheers.
