Downtown Riverside - 10am - 2 Hours

Michaela Porter
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.

    Even though there had been several cloudy nights in a row, I still went to the beach hoping for a nice colorful sunset. Even a cloudy day is a good day at the beach. High tide made for great water movement, and the texture of these rocks made for an interesting foreground element. If nothing else, I could do some good long exposure practice. About 5 minutes after the sunset time, the clouds parted slightly and gave this beautiful reddish glow, and fortunately I was ready. It was such a wonderfu

    This is just one of the many photo op?s along the E Diamond Bar Rd in the Hualapai Indian reservation in north western Arizona. My brother, a former singing cowboy at a nearby dude ranch was showing us the area when we stumbled upon this setting. So many photo op?s, so little time. For those interested in exploring the area, E Diamond Bar Rd is located off of Pierce Ferry Rd (Hwy 25) between Dolan Springs and Meadview. Things are starting to heat up now, maybe it?s best to wait until late autu

    Oso Creek Trail is one of my favorite places in Mission Viejo to spend time. There is so much to see and always plenty of things to take pictures of, natural and manmade. On this day I hiked the upper trail near the Senior Center and captured this image. Make time and take your camera to this area of the city. You?ll find plenty of things to photograph!

    Title or Location:
    With cloudy skies I decided to take pictures close to Saddleback Mountain to see if I could get a dramatic affect so I went to RSM Lake to see what I could capture. My approach was to focus on the natural beauty of the environment and eliminate a composition filled with houses. This location seemed to fit my needs. I set up my tripod and attached a 10 stop neutral density filter for a 20 second exposure to smooth out the water. I also increased the contrast and saturation which brought out the r

    I was focusing on a Marsh Harrier and when I put the camera down I saw this Robin perched on the edge of my table. He just stared at me and patiently waited as I reset the camera. I still had my zoom on and almost fell off my seat leaning to get focus. The images of this bird are among my favourite sets....

    Castle Hill is an amazing location for Landscape and Astro photography. Used a Nikon Z6ii & 20mm 1.8 lens along with a lens warmer plus the Photo Pills planner.The moon was brighter than expected - 5 days old but it actually did us a big favour in lighting up the rocks with the Milky Way core above it. This is the jpeg with no edits.

    I was on a photo workshop in the park with about 8 others. We set up for the night in the Cathedral Overlook campground. At about 3:30 am, the leader got us up and we drove, then hiked to this spot. We took astro shots, then waited in place for a couple hours until early light on the cathedral formations. This is was a merging of the two exposures that created this image.
