How to Shoot Modern Architecture – Itinerary 2



These courses are aimed at those who enjoy photographing buildings and relish the opportunity to spend the day with one of the UK’s foremost architectural photographers at locations with modern buildings by some of Britain’s top architects.

Designed for DSLR/CSC owners who are reasonably confident with their equipment, this day sees how a top pro tackles the stunning city campus of Nottingham Trent University, with buildings by Sir Michael Hopkins, Church Lukas and the listed Newton Arkwright buildings by Cecil Howitt. Shooting inside and out, we shall consider how working in a tight urban environment presents challenges to the architectural photographer and how to create results that impress.

What your day includes

  • An enjoyable walking tour of City Campus using it a specific case study.
  • Plenty of tips when photographing individual buildings in their urban environment with a chance to use perspective control lenses (Canon & Nikon fit only).
  • ‘Hero’ shots and how to spot them.
  • The secrets of light inside and out, and controlling long exposures.
  • Classroom lecture packed with ‘technical know-how’.
  • Colour temperature and how to control it manually with your DSLR.

Photographs of these RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) award-winning buildings taken by Martine (a national RIBA judge herself in 2009) have been published worldwide and she will share her views with you today, as you now create your own images.
