Architectural photography in Guangzhou

Here’s an architecture photograph from Guangzhou, Guangdong, China, which took a lot of work to get done. Although it doesn’t appear so in the final photo, the subject, the tower, was much too close to where we could shoot from, no matter how wide our wide-angle lens was, so instead we shot this photo in pieces, sort of like scanning the sky in rows. 

The camera being on a tripod on a videohead, each piece of the photo, each frame, was exposed seven times, and then in Photoshop all the pieces were stitched together and the vertical lines were fixed. We went to the same location several times and used hours doing the retouch. All-in-all, over 1000 exposures were shot to create this simple-looking photo.
