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.

    It was a pretty uninspiring sunset on this particular day so I decided to try something a bit different. I fitted a magenta filter to my lens and took a few photos of the waterfront and surrounding areas. When I got home I downloaded the images onto my laptop to view them on a larger screen. I do like to use ?artistic license? with some of my photos and I use a spot colour app. It takes the photography back to monochrome and allows me to touch back in the colour of the original in the areas I wa

    After I had just got back from a day in Liverpool, I saw that all the lights down Nevill Street were still on so I went for a look to see if there were any photo opportunities and saw this girl waiting to buy ice cream and with the combination of the lights I thought it was a great time to hit my shutter button.

    Title or Location: My back garden in Hemel Hempstead
    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
