We visit the city for many reasons- it might be for a concert or for some unique dining or perhaps it’s the place you work. We pass through the city streets dealing with traffic and we often to fail to notice the beauty of the architecture.
This workshop is all about capturing the majestic and historic structures that dot the urban landscape of Boston. Architectural photography is more than just photographing buildings. It is a creative and technical challenge to capture man-made structures in an artful way. Architectural photos emphasize design- the design of the structure as interpreted by the photographer.
We will begin the workshop at the Christian Science Plaza, one of the most unique collections of buildings in the city (from the classic to the modern adjacent to a massive reflecting pool.) From the Plaza we will move to other interior and exterior locations for an extensive field photography session.
Many of my client projects involve architectural photography. It is an important part of my travel photo assignments and my industrial location shoots. In this workshop I will be sharing the tricks of the trade, demonstrating the techniques of working with large scale subjects and creating interesting compositions.
This is a three hour, hands-on, working photo workshop. Tripods are required. A range of lenses from wide to telephoto will be useful for this workshop. We will be shooting in a variety of locations and lighting conditions, practicing the many technical skills required to master this type of image making. Because of the level of instruction I am limiting this class size to a small group.
