Ellen Fisch will present an architectural photography course on September 19, 2012 that can provide tips and techniques to both professional and amateur photographers in the art of photographing architecture. The seminar will cover the basics that Ellen Fisch uses in her own black and white and sepia architectural photography and will go beyond the basics to create a WOW image that will impress clients and friends alike. The architectural photography class will review some of the principles of taking photographs that Fisch presented at Berger Bros. Camera in Syosset in June while adding new information and visuals.
Some basic principles that will be explored are: selecting a subject, setting up the shot, lighting and distance, framing the shot and various aspects of post-production work in the computer. Photographer Ellen Fisch suggests numerous techniques of combining camera work with computer technology in order to enhance photographs. Some tips on film photography will also be offered.
In addition to her architectural photography class, Ellen Fisch will conduct a photography tour/ workshop in Coney Island on September 29, 2012. Fisch’s fascination with the seaside community of Coney Island began when she was a child growing up in Brooklyn. “Coney Island offers a visual panorama of architectural delights,” says Photographer Ellen Fisch who returns often to the area to create new images of the well-loved Brooklyn landmark neighborhood.
“Buildings are not the only elements of architecture that can impact the viewer; the boardwalk, piers, rock formations, amusement rides are all architectural,” says architectural Photographer Ellen Fisch. “Incorporating natural and human architecture into a photograph creates interest and appeal." Students will gain new perspectives about photographing an iconic place with an eye towards detail and architecture during the four hour workshop, which will be continued the following week when photographs are critiqued by Fisch at The Center for Photographic Art.
On October 6, 2012, following the Coney Island tour Ellen Fisch and those who attended the workshop will convene at The Center for Photographic Art for a photography critique. Fisch will offer pointers on composition, lighting, values and ways in which to capture a WOW image.
“Photography is a form of self-expression. The photographer records what is seen and then interprets it as a form of self-expression for the viewer. Photographing architecture is creating art from existing art,” says architectural fine art Photographer Ellen Fisch.
