Photographing architectural exteriors and interiors takes a lot of patience and preparation.
Even though the best way to learn is to actually take photographs, we will spend some classroom time reviewing skills and theory including such things as exposure, lenses, color usage and why shooting in Raw instead of Jpeg makes more sense.
Go on location for hands on techniques
You will then be taught hands-on techniques of various exteriors and interiors on location. We will also go through a workflow using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop where you will learn to finesse your photographs for professional results.
Our Architecture Photography Class is great for realtors, home designers, or anyone interested in photographing architecture for fun or work.
This class will appeal to photographers interested in architectural photography in general, aspiring or actual home designers, realtors, street photographers, commercial photographers or anyone interested in posing people within an architectural image (see the image of the grocery store at the bottom of this page for such an example) ... this architecture photography class is for anyone who wants to make shooting beautiful buildings their subject matter!
