This course is aimed at those who enjoy photographing buildings and relish the opportunity to spend the day with one of the UK's foremost architectural photographers at a location with modern buildings by some of Britain's top architects.
Designed for DSLR owners who are reasonably confident with their equipment, this day sees how a pro tackles the internationally acclaimed Jubilee Campus at the University of Nottingham, with buildings by Sir Michael Hopkins and MAKE (architect of London's Gherkin). Together, we shall create stunning images of the architecture in its lakeside setting, working with people and light to create pictures with impact.
The day includes:
- An enjoyable walking tour of Jubilee Campus using it a specific case study.
- Plenty of tips when photographing individual buildings in their Lakeside setting with a chance to use perspective control lenses (Canon & Nikon fit only).
- ‘Hero’ shots and how to spot them.
- The secrets of light inside and out, and controlling long exposures.
- Classroom lecture packed with 'technical know-how'.
- Colour temperature and how to control it manually with your DSLR.

Clients with special needs or requirements must advise the RPS before the event so that appropriate measures can be taken. There is wheelchair access and disabled toilet facilities at some of our training venues, but courses including outdoor activity are likely to encounter steps, gradients and other physical barriers. Often old listed properties do not have lifts and certain shot viewpoints may involve using several flights of stairs. Further details can be obtained from the RPS office and should be discussed before the event.
