Architectural Photography Workshop
February 23 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
This summer the AIA Long Beach/South Bay will be hosting its 3rd biennial Architectural Photography Competition that celebrates the built environment and architectural design. Join us in our workshop webinar to improve your photography skills and learn how the application of creating high-quality images easily translates to marketing uses for architects and designers to create striking proposals, eye catching social media posts, and impactful design award submissions. Taught by Architectural Photographer Carlos R. Hernandez, AIA. All photography experience levels welcome.
Attendees will learn about Architectural photography sub genres and trends.
Attendees will learn about recommended tools and equipment.
Attendees will learn about proper planning and preparation, shot lists, and defining asset objectives.
Attendees will learn about lighting: quality of light, artificial light, natural light, solar studies, shoot times including the ‘golden hour’, and how each can affect the photograph of a structure.
Attendees will learn about photography composition, perspective, and styling that will best present the exterior and interior of a structure.
Attendees will learn about proper post processing: basics, workflow, editing software, and lens correction.
This workshop webinar is complemented with our Photography Walkabout on Sat., Feb. 26, 3 – 6 pm at SteelCraft Bellflower to experience hands-on exterior and interior assignments of one-point and two-point perspective, hero shot, vignette/details, and composition considerations.
Student attendees (high school or college) may enter the AIA LBSB’s Architectural Photography Competition in the summer of 2022 at no cost.
