We live in a growing city with great architecture, and Austin is quickly gaining an iconic skyline. Learn to make beautiful and creative pictures of that architecture inside and out. We’ll start with a brief classroom session reviewing great architectural photos and learning what makes them work. We will then discuss shooting techniques and post processing. Next, we’ll venture out to practice balancing inside and outside light levels while making interior image. Finally, we will visit the architecturally interesting Austin Federal Courthouse to practice making exterior images.

Students should have a good understanding of the exposure triangle, and how to operate their camera in a variety of exposure modes. This class is not geared to teaching students how to photograph architecture in a professional capacity.
Schedule and Format
This class is part lecture and part on-location shooting. We’ll start at Precious Camera for the classroom portion and then move to their showroom to practice balancing interior and exterior lighting and finding interior shots that work. After the classroom portion, the group will move to the Federal Courthouse at Republic Square — downtown at 5th and San Antonio —to practice photographing its interesting external architecture.
