Saturday 28 September

Architectural photography can be a great way of exploring and documenting a city, whether it's your home or on holiday. Its about capturing not only the design and accurate representation of a building, but to have the shots be aesthetically pleasing to the viewer's eye. An architectural photographer makes pictures, not takes pictures.

In this session, we will be covering how to better understand Architecture photography and we'll be looking at ways to take some impressive shots and the camera settings to use.

    Title or Location: Norwich
    There are a set of steps in front of County Hall in Norwich where people gather to eat their lunch, mainly street food bought from the colourful market just below. I have taken many street photographs there. The pigeons and gulls gather there to pick up food scraps. I wanted to get a picture of this pigeon waiting for a meal opportunity, but with the view of Norwich behind to give a sense of the location. The scene shows the iconic market and Norwich Castle in the background. A focal length of f

    ?This past Father?s Day I went to a family farm cidery with my oldest daughter. The drinks were good, the company was great, but the best part was the farm?s commitment to keeping wild, native plants for pollinators. This little bee found a delicious clover and I got this macro shot.?

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
