Benedict Luxmoore will provide an insight to his clients and working methods, with some hints and tips on how to achieve the desired results with both specialist and general use photographic equipment.
Then there will be the opportunity to put this new knowledge to work in a shooting session, either with the group at the Old Royal Naval College or solo at one of the many interesting locations in Greenwich.
The afternoon will consist of a review of the images just taken (if digital) with hints and tips on post processing. Plus a general review of our experiences of the day.
Required at the session:
Camera, memory card/s, card reader, batteries, tripod, USB drive. Own laptop desirable.
Specialist equipment is not a necessity but if you have cameras and/or lenses with tilt and shift capability this may be an opportunity to dust them off and put them to use. Lens hire is an option, but you would have to arrange this privately beforehand.
Benedict Luxmoore photographs architecture and interiors for some of the best-known names in building design.
He has been an independent photographer for over twenty years, of which the last fifteen have been exclusively devoted to the built environment. His images are used to record a newly finished project, to promote the work of the client through magazine features and books, and as support material for prospective bids and proposals. He is called upon also to provide view-verified backgrounds for computer-generated backgrounds that will be used for marketing and for planning submissions.
This website features projects that Benedict has photographed during the last five years, and which are representative of the broad range of work with which he has been involved. http://www.luxmoore.co.uk/
