In our Masterclass for Architectural Photography, you will learn everything to plan, photograph and post-process different kinds of architectural photo compositions. We will not only cover the “classic”, more documentary, style but also discover the genre in more abstract and artistic ways.
You will learn possibilities and means of composition, technical aspects for settings and gear and the influence of the right viewpoint, all with a specific focus on architectural photography. As a basis, we will teach you not only the understanding of the „tools“ like camera and lenses but also the theoretical understanding of topics like geometry, perspective, and distortion.
We will show you how and where to find inspiration for architectural photography and how to plan for your photographs to get the most out of your shots. In order to do that, we analyze the buildings and study the influence of weather, daytime and sun position on the appeal of the final photograph.
After the theory block, we will get hands-on experience to make sure you can use what you’ve learned. We will, therefore, visit different buildings and photograph them. Of course, we will help you out with finding compositions as well as with any technical questions you might have during the shooting.
For the post-processing, we will give advice and share our tips and tricks. However we strongly recommend our Lightroom and Photoshop courses as a follow up. After the editing session, we will end the day with a presentation of the pictures you took and have a short image critique.
