Architecture Photography

Architecture Photography

Saturday 08 June
Union St N, Rochester - 9am - 2 Hours
Donald Retz
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.

    I visited the observation deck for the first time at Niagara Falls and wanted to capture the maid of the mist. I was able to snap a photo as the boat was traveling right towards the misty area.

    Title or Location: Spring Lake Park, East Rochester, NY
    Sometimes when I need some perspective I seek out a park or take a drive somewhere I've never been. I find that just walking alone and focusing on the beauty that's around me helps me clear my mind and often that's when I take the best photos.

    Title or Location: Niagara Falls
    I took this at Three Sisters Island in Niagara Falls and saw numerous birds flying. I was able to capture this bird while taking many shots at once. I changed the picture to black and white and tweaked the lighting, clarity and texture.

    Title or Location: Vroom Rd. Ogden/ Spencerport area.
    I took this photo at 5:47pm. I knew the sunset would be amazing and I couldn?t get a good shot from where I was. So I took a chance and made the right hand turn onto Vroom rd. Pulled over to the side of a farmers field and took a couple of shots.

    Took this photo driving home. It's used to store fire wood. I liked the way it sets back away from the road and looks like it could be in the mountains.

    Title or Location: Victoria Point, Brisbane
    This was my first attempt at astrophotography in Brisbane and was a trial shot more than anything. I went looking for an eastern facing foreground knowing that the Milky Way core would be rising at around 10pm from the east, leaving me few options where light pollution wouldn't be an issue. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't too harsh at vic point. I loved the foreground and the lightning in the distance on the horizon, and the satellite creaping in was another unexpected surprise with th

    This photo was taken a few years ago. I waited a long time for the right light and atmosphere. I was already cold when this picture appeared. I was very happy that my efforts were so generously rewarded.
