All participants will be given a folder of extensive notes as well and guidelines from an interiors magazines on what they look for and require in submitted images.
This course is available either as an individual course, or in a group of up to a maximum of 3 participants.
The day consists mainly of discussions, explanations, and evaluating interiors and architectural images in magazines, books, from my own extensive database, and also any images brought in by participants.
Although this course is primarily theoretical and visual rather than practical, the individual course offers much greater opportunity to actually do some photography outdoors as well as indoors.
I will cover in depth the techniques to get the best out of your photographic equipment in order to produce great interiors and architectural photographs, as well as advising on which cameras, lenses and what other equipment is the most suitable, including all ancillary equipment.
You will be able to handle and learn how to use specialist accessories such as architectural tilt/shift lenses.
