Architectural Photography Course
An Architect is an artist who paints with Bricks, Steel, Wind, glass etc.
Each work of an Architect is a masterpiece three-dimensional creation of a structure that serves a function – whether it’s a home, Office, Church, or a state-of-the-art Corporate Headquarters.
It is said that today, the photograph of a building as opposed to the building itself, is the most widely consumed image.
However it takes a bit of training in the field of architectural photography to be able to interpret those lines, colors, curves, space, symbols, employed by the Architect, and have them represented in a two -dimensional photograph.
It takes training to be able to see not only how the light and shadow cast upon a building, affects its Shape, Form, Curve etc., but also to take advantage of these Natural light details, to paint a unique representation of any Architectural piece in PICTURES
A good use of these techniques does not only apply to the exterior of the building but also to the interior of the building.
