Architectural Photography has changed greatly in the last decade. Ten years ago you would have found almost all pros shooting film with 4X4 cameras. No you see the vast majority shooting with full frame DSLRs like the Canon 5D or 1DsMarkIII using tilt/shift lenses. Also much of what was done in preproduction like wrapping lights and gelling windows is now done in layers in post production. Sadly there have been really no excellent books on this transition until this and the new Norman McGrath book came out. This is probably the best of the two from a complete instructional viewpoint. I loaned this book to the head of the photography department of the fifth largest photography program in the US and he plans to use it for the textbook for their architectural photography course. If you are interested in this subject I recommend you get both this and Architectural Photography: Professional Techniques for Shooting Interior and Exterior Spaces by Norman McGrath.
