Tutor: Cora James
On this one day introduction to city and architecture photography you will take your camera-handling skills out into the streets of Edinburgh, a UNESCO World Heritage city. Similar to landscape shooting with light and environmental conditions constantly changing, city and architecture photography celebrates and explores the man-made additions that landscape photographers conventionally exclude.
We will begin the day in Stills, looking at some examples of architectural photography and discussing the theory and techniques used to achieve them.
We will explore a variety of city environments, all within a short walk (or tram ride) from Stills. We will concentrate on three key decisions each time we shoot: exposure, focus, frame. We will also spend some time investigating lens focal lengths and the effects of space, scale and perspective.
Project Days are designed for those who are already familiar with digital photography processes but who want to pursue a particular aspect or develop more specific skills in one or more areas. This course is the perfect follow-on from our Digital SLR training courses and will support you in building upon your existing knowledge of DSLR camera skills and becoming a better photographer in general. It will help you to work confidently on your own creative projects and develop the artist in you.
