Architectural photography can be a great way of exploring and documenting a city, whether it's your home or on holiday.

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.

    This was taken on a recent holiday to Somerset sitting on the patio that's part of our room, I was able to hear birds but wasn't able to see where (I'm currently on crutches so exploring was a limited option). As I was sitting just fiddling with some settings learning my new camera this small bird, some sort of a tit, was jumping around the bushes, i saw there was a coconut shell which he was interested in, however I wasn't able to get a good shot due to the angle of both the bird and me.

    For 2 weeks every winter Sydney is lit up with amazing colours and beams of light over the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and various buildings throughout the city. I captured this photo of the Opera House from across the water at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.
