We can dream about nature and fantasise about getting lost in the wild, but most of the time the majority of us can't escape our urban landscape. And you know what, cities have great potential for photography, there is absolutely nothing wrong about feeling seduced by those huge structures and all those shiny surfaces.
Shooting cityscapes has one thing in common with landscape photography, it requires some patience. And when talking about “patience” it includes the research involved – scouting out an intriguing location and the long exposures to capture the movement and bustle.
I remember the first time I was trying to capture the skyline of Panama City, it was extremely complex for me because I was exposing for the sky, which was, in turn, impacting all that shiny surfaces and early lit lights from the buildings.
