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!

    Title or Location: Gerroa, seven mile beach national park
    Thank you for the consideration.Background to this photo.A couple of years ago on our local community page I saw a photo of a tree covered in bioluminescent fungi saying it was found in Gerroa, 5 minutes drive from me. Wow how amazing, so I set out to find it and photography it too. Since then I developed an interest in fungi and look forward to Autumn when there is plenty about. To enable me to photograph ghost fungi ( omphalotus nidiformis) I go for a bush walk during the day mostly

    Title or Location: Canyonland National Park
    Mesa Arch is about a 25 minute walk from the parking lot in Canyonland National Park. At night, it's the darkest sky I've ever seen. This photo represents 20 stacked images of the Milky Way combined together in Starry Landscape Stacker. The result required the scene to be slightly brightened in post to bring out the foreground.
