Architecture Photography

Sunday 21 April
Boardwalk - 10am - 2 Hours
Atlantic City Photography Group
Eric Weeks
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.

We will be talking about architecture and how to better pre-visualize what you are trying to capture, for a better end result. Some camera basics for best results and exposure, composition techniques to guide your viewers eye through your image and a little Photoshop to make your image POP.

    One in a series of portraits which became a long-term project inspired by film noir lighting as depicted by George Hurrell and other photographers of that era. At the onset, I had no intention of setting up a studio space if not for the insistence of one of my neighbors who wanted me to make a profile portrait for him. At the time, I had been retired for over a decade and no longer possessed any professional gear. In a scramble to find some light sources, I was able to dig up a couple of cheap g

    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??

    to create this I used a piece of Teal vinyl for the backdrop, I had the camera, with a 30 mm Marco lens on a tripod set to manual focus, with focus staking of 10 shots I only used 5 in the end). for lighting I had two static lights on mini stands so I could play about with their placement to get the effect I was looking for. The dandelion seed was held in place, by putting it into a piece of white tack, I then sprayed it using a little electronic face atomiser (bought from Amazon) and loa

    Decided to make a composite that resembles the photo that NASA took with their millions of dolllar photo equipment. 2 months ago I photographed the full moon and placed it on top of the most recent solar eclipse photo I took. The moon normally get its light from the sun so getting the perspective with moon visibility is impossible during an eclipse unless you have nasa gear. My photo was taken with a canon R5, RF400mm F2.8 and cropped in.
