Adding architecture photography skills to your existing repertoire not only increases your knowledge base, but can dramatically increase your customer base. For 26 years John Warner has been creating still and moving images of public and private spaces for a wide range of clients. During this week he teaches you the finer points of photographing architecture and the behind-the-scenes business strategy of a working professional.
In this comprehensive look at what is involved in creating quality architecture images, Warner discusses cameras (35 mm to panoramic), lenses, tripods, cable releases, panoramic heads, and lighting equipment. Post-production topics include the importance of metadata, HDR, merging images to create panoramics, and the crucial technique of building lighting layers in Photoshop. Location shoots—scheduled at varying times of day—teach you how to work with both ambient and artificial lighting. Learn time-lapse, video, and virtual-reality techniques that wow clients. Throughout the week, constructive critiques by Warner help identify your strengths and weaknesses and ensure your improvement.
