By the end of this event, you will be more familiar with: - How to adjust camera settings for low light. - Using slow shutter speeds to get brighter images and create light trails. - Capturing RAW images. - Guidelines for shooting other people and their property in the real world.

Architecture Photography

Architecture Photography

Saturday 01 June
Downtown Winnipeg - 6pm - 2 Hours
Rafid Hasim
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.

    I was taking a picture of the sunset. As I was enjoying how the light was emerging through the clouds, this wonderful Pelican with at least a 1.6 meter wingspan decided to put on a show for me by repeatedly diving for fish. I took more than 100 photos, this one stood among the rest. What made the moment special for me was how much time I had to experiment with settings as the pelican rested before each dive.

    We were watching the sun set with family in Acapulco. A walk down the beach led to this fantastic photo opportunity and a memorable picture of my grandson. The reflection of the sun on the sand caught my eye so I took the shot. Canon R8RF 28-104mm F4 Lens old man pushing the shutter button.

    Working on trying new things! Plucked this Puff out of my front yard flower bed. Used a small compact mirror to create the shot using natural daylight thorough the window. The black and white spoke drama with such a simple subject. Taken with Canon rebel t7 and efs 18-55mm f/3.5-6.6Settings 1/60 f5.6

    Title or Location: My back garden in Hemel Hempstead
    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula

    This is part of a huge street art display, a real gem in Leeds. I loved the different displays of hands walking, creates a real sense of movement and intrigue. Photo was taken around 11am. The light you see shining on the hand is from a wall light. Camera setting - F4.2, 1/400 shutter and ISO 200.
