Architectural Photography & Composition Workshop

If you want to take your interior and architectural photographs to the next level, or want to learn techniques that you can incorporate into your own architectural, interior, or real estate photography, you will want to attend this workshop with Randy. In this workshop you will be working with Randy as he photographs interiors during the day and during dusk and twilight. Lighting, styling, composition and Photoshop techniques will be taught, and you will leave with a new sense of confidence that will allow you to work in any situation and make you client happy.

For our daytime interior shoot, we’ll explore a number of lighting techniques to give different looks to the same scene, discuss composition and the reasons for it, and learn about styling and the basic rules of shooting interiors professionally.

For the twilight/dusk shot, Randy will discuss the reasons for shooting at that time that creates images that engage viewers and please clients.  In addition, you’ll learn how to add light painting and composite different elements together to easily create beautiful twilight architectural images while faced with any number of challenges such as dismal skies, poor lighting or people and cars in the image.

This workshop contains one full day of location work and one full day of classroom work. Randy will go though his workflow, answer questions about techniques, the industry, marketing and of course any questions you have about lighting and post processing. Time is built in for reviewing every facet of creating these images, so if you have any questions, feel free to prepare them and ask during classroom time, no question is off limits. Every student will receive a copy of the raw images at the end of the workshop to continue their learning experience.
