Architectural Photography Workshop

Are you interested in photography?

 Would you like to learn about photographing buildings? 

 Are you a photography student, an enthusiast or construction professional who might benefit from some ideas and techniques?

 Guildford Cathedral’s Artist in Residence, Richard Ellis, is running a practical, hands on workshop on architectural photography, suitable for anyone with a basic understanding of a digital camera.

Limited to 14 places, this FREE enjoyable event, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, combines the artistic and technical aspects of architectural photography.

In the morning, participants will take their cameras around the cathedral grounds (or interior in case of rain), exploring ‘on-camera’ skills such as lighting, exposure, composition, lens choice and depth of field.

After lunch (available in the Refectory) learn how the professionals get their results by exploring post-production techniques, such as combining multiple exposures, light balance, and perspective control, in Photoshop.


Further Information

Richard was recently commissioned to write an article for the EOS Magazine, which may serve as a useful introduction to the subject
