Let's talk about some of the common Post-Processing tricks for editing Architecture Photographs :

Managing Horzontal/Vertical alignments & dealing with spatial distortions is one the keys :

Usually Architecture photography poses a common challenge that you have click the elaborates spaces with lot of constraints in terms of space to place camera and lenses. All that leads to lens distortion, which can ruin a great architecture photo. Although, at times distortions make Architectural photographs dramatic as well, so it's subjective and depends upon lot of factors. 

Distortions can create unnatural alignment that puts things out of proportion or makes the straight lines of a building seem to curved or tilted. The good news is that most of that can be handled very well in softwares like Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Some key features which help you deal with aligning lines and managing distortions are :




1. Camera & Lens Profiles : These profiles help you with managing know distortions introduced by a Lens and camera combination. That's all is available in Lens Correction section in Develop module of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.


2. Transform section in Develop section of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom : This section help in correcting alignment of different horizontal and vertical lines, along with managing rotation & distortions.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Processing can help a lot for Architecture Photographs :



With architecture photography, most of the times existing lighting at the location is main source and few other lights are used but may not be enough depending upon size, shape, colours & texture of the space. that can cause problems. So there can be variable lighting and you may want to take out details in most of the parts you clicked. HDR post-processing would be helpful in taking out details in highlights & shadows.  

Another challenging situation is photographing interiors of a building but also want to capture some of the details you can see outside through a window. The interior lighting contrasting with conditions outside might make it difficult. In this case as well, clicking multiple shots of same frame for HDR processing can help you take care of lighting difference.

Other standard Post-processing rules work equally well for Architecture Photography.
