Architecture Photography

Saturday 15 June
Lancaster City Centre - 10am - 2 Hours
Darren Tyson
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.

You can use buildings and other man-made structures compositionally in the same way other landscape photographers use trees and rolling hills. Wind farms, harbours, cement works, power stations, quarries, pylons and building sites are just a few of the industrial landscapes you can photograph.

Street art is a unique and colorful art form and can be found in all kinds of nooks and crannies in cities all over the world. Capturing art in the streets in photographs can be tricky because these urban art pieces are in public spaces, that are busy and usually filled with a decent amount of traffic. Sometimes you include the people and sometimes, you don't.

    The photo was taken at around 11 am on the 8th of March on a sunny day which made it impossible to expose the whole scene correct. I sat watching, hoping the Egret would move out of the direct sunlight which it did. I got a few shots and some video of it fishing but then I thought it was going to take off so quickly switched from video to stills and got some shots, this having the best wing position. Taken with a Nikon Z8 and Nikon 600 f4 with the 1.4 teleconverter attached.

    After the Litfest Presentation and announcement of the winners of the photography competition I wanted to head out onto the castle area of the City. Despite the rain I wasn't deterred to take some images - shoot in all weathers! The dark stones of the buildings of the castle make the area look spooky in the day never mind night! I wanted to capture the photo as if it could have been taken in 1850s.

    Waiting for the murmuration in the rain. A full rainbow appeared but I was unable to capture it on my long lense. This was a small section of rainbow and birds in the distance. There were lots of people on the skytower as the sky filled with flapping and light. Nobody spoke. I saved various versions of the moment and some are more edited than others.

    Saturday night, 5/11/24, I went out to the St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park wanting to capture some photos of the Northern Lights as the Solar Storm made the aurora visible down here in Louisiana. It was a cloudy night so we didn't get to see any of it. But a thunderstorm was was approaching and "heat lightning" was seen in the distance. As it got closer, the lightning strikes were getting more and more visible even though the storm was still miles away. So I repositioned my camera and

    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.
