Photography in Baltimore MD includes its fair share of architecture and real estate photography. Whether inside or outdoors in Baltimore, staircases are always an interesting feature to place in your photographs. What is it about photographs of staircases that causes them to intrigue us so much? It could be that stairs appeal to our sense of adventure – offering to take us on a journey of discovery of what lies at the top (or bottom) or on the next landing. That might be true but there is, in fact, much more to it than that and professional photographers are well aware of the traits of staircases and use them to their advantage. One trait is shape. From straight lines to curves and spirals, stairs add interesting shapes, lines and angles to a photograph and can help to break up an otherwise monotonous picture. Stairs also add depth to picture. It easy for us to imagine the flight of stairs moving into and out of the picture. They also help to connect and overlap levels creating the sensation of tangible layers within the picture. This effect is achieved above in the photo of a staircase at the plush Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara, in the Empty Quarter, Abu Dhabi. Stairs also give the photographer practicing Photography in Baltimore MD, the option of which direction to shoot from. At the base of a stairs looking up is a very different view from being at the top of the stairs looking down. That difference is greatly pronounced in the case to spiral staircases which always seem to hold extra fascination for us. The addition of other elements can positively affect your photo (if they are chosen wisely). Windows that stream in light can create a snap-worthy effect. Persons along an especially long or winding staircase can add the element of scale, helping the viewer to put sizes into perspective.
