Complete description

Capturing the historic character of buildings and landscapes through photography is a critical component of all documentation and preservation efforts. Indeed, it plays a central role in the Historic Structure Report, a comprehensive document that is required whenever a restoration is undertaken. But while photography is at the heart of preservation work, it can be difficult for non-professionals to fully grasp the technical and aesthetic considerations unique to historic structures. This hands-on user's guide will explain it all, from the pros and cons of digital versus film photography and how to capture large-scale buildings, historic districts, and cultural landscapes, to the photographic requirements of reviewing agencies like the National Park Service, and much, much more.
