Architecture Photography Meetup

Architecture Photography Meetup

Saturday 01 June
Midland College - 2:30pm - 2 Hours
Louis Johnson
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.

    Title or Location: Amaryllis Study in Light
    This beauty has been brightening up our home during the blahs of Winter. I was not feeling well and rejected my morning walk. I noticed that the blooms on the Amaryllis were beginning to wane, so I took some time to capture it. Nikon Z8 24-120 mm @ 24mm f/4 ISO 200 - OCF one speedlight camera left 1/256th with a GOBO.

    Title or Location: White Crowned Sparrow
    Drove all over town on Sunday, including I-20 Nature Preserve and came home with an empty card. Bummer. So I set up towards the little patio we have and waited. Not too long and the seed block we have attracted several species. Certainly a more comfortable environment!

    Shot with Canon RP w/ 24-105mm lens with ND1000 filter 30 sec at f8.0 ISO 100. Edited in Lightroom for minor tweaks. Converted the color shot to Black and White and liked that version so much better!

    One of the creative artistic edits of my images. I love to create motion and fluidity in an image to set it apart from the run of the mill shot by creating drama and emotion using my post processing skills.

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea
