For the first part of the day, students will be shown samples from a variety of the instructors assignments over many decades of working as an architectural photographer. This will include a discussion of various approaches and techniques related to interior architectural photography and how to deal with creative challenges including composition and lighting.
For the second part of the day, the photographer will be photographing two commercial interior spaces on-location for one of his clients. Students will be able to participate as the photographers assistants as well as take photos of their own of the setup. Challenges such as overall illumination, accent lighting, working with different white balances, and elimination of reflections will be covered in depth.
In the third part of the day, the photographer will edit the photos that have been taken and demonstrate various techniques for perspective correction, layer masking, compositing, and color correction. Students are encouraged to bring their own laptops so that they can edit along with the instructor to practice the editing techniques.
Items to bring: If students want to set up alongside the photographer they will need a camera, wide-angle lens, and tripod.Students should also bring a laptop loaded with Adobe Photoshop if they want to participate in the editing.
