Architecture Photography

Sunday 23 June
Little Malop St, Geelong - 9am - 2 Hours
Geelong Photography Group
Karen Wekwerth
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.

  • REVIEWS
    The location for the event, National Gallery of Victoria, was excellent as it provided a range of photographic opportunities involving not only exhibits but the architecture of the building and the people in the area. It was definitely nice to set the camera for black and white and to see everything from the perspective of black, white and grey tones when composing shots.

    Gabriella was excellent. She was patient with our lack of knowledge of our camera, as well as listening to the skills that we really wanted to learn. Despite differing skill levels she was able to teach both of us new things so that we can now go away confident of using our cameras. I was particularly appreciative of the notes which were easy to follow and well explained.

    Title or Location: Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary, Australian Capital Territory.
    This amazing shot was taken at Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary during one of my morning visits at the Sanctuary in February 2024. The first soft light rays from the sun and rising of mist from the lake water made it to look more serene and atmospheric environment. The dead tree (snags) in the water played vital role in making it look like the ghostly scenes in Hollywood movie "Lord of the Rings".The photo was shot with Nikon Z7ii at ISO 100, f14 at 13 sec and processed in Lightroom classic

    Title or Location: Vancouver, Washington
    Been trying to capture an airplane going in front of the Moon for years. Still haven't got that Moon transit capture. There is something dynamic about this almost transit image I captured though. It almost gives the appearance that the passengers of that plane are doing a fly by and see the moon up close out of their windows.

    Working on trying new things! Plucked this Puff out of my front yard flower bed. Used a small compact mirror to create the shot using natural daylight thorough the window. The black and white spoke drama with such a simple subject. Taken with Canon rebel t7 and efs 18-55mm f/3.5-6.6Settings 1/60 f5.6
