About the Course

One week summer course on photography and architecture.

This course will teach you the necessary skills to capture the identity of a place. You will explore urban spaces old and new, inside and out, as well as green spaces where architecture and nature meet. You will investigate how people interact with the urban environment and how to capture a moment in time.

Architecture in photography is something many people can relate to, which makes it an accessible form of photographic practice. But being able to capture a unique image is a real skill and which sets professional photographers aside from others.

This practical course will appeal to anyone interested in the urban environment and how the aesthetic qualities of buildings can be captured in a photograph. Nottingham has a wealth of contemporary and historic buildings that will be explored through the lens of your camera.

You will approach architecture and photography from both a fine art and reportage perspective to give your work a breadth of content that will appeal to different audiences.

On this course you will:

Improve your understanding of digital photography and the manual settings of your camera
Discuss the work of professional photographers and how they may inform the direction your work takes
Experience working in a variety of urban locations, capturing the external and internal qualities of historic and contemporary buildings
Experiment with abstract shapes, colours and textures
Use Photoshop to enhance and manipulate your images
Develop a personal style to your photography
Create inspiring architectural images that have both an aesthetic and potential commercial quality.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you will have a portfolio of unique architectural images, the knowledge and experience of how to plan a shoot on location, and ideas about how to continue your photography in the future.
