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.

    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

    A friend told me about this April 6th SpaceX launch from Vandenburg AFB. So, I took my camera and tripod and headed to the top of Vista Del Lago to see what I could capture. The rocket launched at 7:25 PM. Soon after I could see the vapor trail rising from the horizon. This picture was taken at 7:27 PM as it headed south in the direction of San Diego. I was hoping to get a much closer shot of the rocket but in retrospect, I think this is a better composition. Below is a link to the Vandenburg AF

    Mother Nature served up a beautiful sherbet colored sky. As the colors started to fade, I thought I was done shooting, but then I noticed these rocks and the way the ocean was playing with them. I got my camera back out and took this shot. It was the last shot of the night, but it ended up being my favorite. Gear used: Canon R5, rf 14-35mm lens at 14mm, f/11, 125 ISO, 1/2 sec exposure.

    I thought I'd try my (10x) neutral density filter on the coast to see what kind of results I could get. I took this with my Canon M50 at 21mm , f/11, ISO 100 for 8 seconds. The filter enabled me to get the 8 second exposure giving the water a misty look. I also increased the saturation, contrast and clarity to bring out the colors in the rocks and water.

    I took this photo after work on the night of Friday 5-10-24. I was seeing posts about people seeing the northern lights as low as Oklahoma. I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

    Photo of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) taken on New Brighton promenade on Friday 10th May 2024 (around 11:53pm) - the night when the Northern Lights was visible from much of the UK.I'd be thinking of heading out to try and catch a photo of the Northern Lights for the past few weeks as had seen notifications on various apps and on Facebook that there might be a chance of seeing them. I finally decided to go out and see if I could see them on that evening, and I was extremely lucky tha

    I started taking my son to RIAT in 2008 when he was just six years old. He had to follow Dad, and would be seen armed with my old Canon 350D. I was using a Canon 40D and Canon 100-400mm L series lens at the time.RIAT is wholly dependant upon the right weather for good photography. Cloud too low - display routines are changed. Too much cloud and rain - the background is too grey. The weather can also be too good, leaving bright blue, but boring backgrounds. Thankfully July 18, 2009 provided goo

    Knowing there was a high chance of seeing the aurora borealis, I left work early on Friday, May 10. First, I stopped at my local camera store to buy a new lens I had been dreaming about (14-24mm f2.8). Then I drove to Minnesota to meet up with another photographer. By 1am, we found ourselves by this lake. I often found myself admiring the aurora and not taking pictures. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced.
