In landscape and architecture photography it works best to have a interesting and balanced composition. In this workshop we discus examples of professional photographers and our own results. In this workshop we will also look at the specific technics used in landscape and architecture photography. We look at how colour, type and direction of lighting not only influences the atmosphere, but also changes the three-dimensional look of the scene.
Besides the standard camera exposure correction, we will adjust the contrast in our subject. After correction we will get visible information in both sky and dark areas. For this we will use the several contrast settings in the camera, work with Auto Exposure Bracketing and make High Dynamic Range images wit the use of Photoshop or in camera options. We will look at options in Photoshop the local adjust the picture to get the perfect balance and atmosphere.
