Shooting cityscapes is not unlike photographing natural landscapes.
The main difference is that your city landscape has light elements not seen in nature.
This creates incredibly dynamic compositions. But often, you must start a little earlier in the morning, or stay a bit later than you might in the wild.
While on assignment scouting shots for a client in my hometown of Dallas recently, I was reminded of this.
Scouting is key… and don’t be afraid to show up really early, and stay later than you’d want. Dinner may get cold, but the perfect balance in exposure of sky and city lights is a delicate matter.
