Shooting Architecture is excited to announce its next event: a workshop with Douglas Hill and Martin Cox to be held at architecturally significant buildings in Downtown Los Angeles during the weekend of December 6-7, 2014.  Participants will experience exclusive access to these buildings during an intense weekend of photography and architectural appreciation.

Watch demonstrations of camera and lighting techniques presented by experienced professional architectural photographers, then photograph the buildings’ interiors and exteriors with your own cameras under the instructors’ supervision. We’ll be announcing the locations for this upcoming workshop soon.

  2. I came across this page in an image search; I wish i could have been a part of this; I’ve always learned how to improve my own work by studying photography, and this would have been greatly beneficial.

  7. [...] Our next weekend workshop, scheduled for February 9th & 10th, will be different from ones we’ve done in the past. Instead of visiting non-residential buildings downtown, we’ll be in two rarely seen spectacular houses located in Pasadena. One is a stunning Mid-century Modern from the ’50s and the other is a traditional Spanish designed by Wallace Neff in the early ’30s. We’ll be spending an entire day in each house where we will give group demonstrations of various tools and techniques specific to residential architectural photography and leave plenty of time for everyone to explore the houses inside and out with their cameras. Because we will be in controlled environments instruction will emphasize natural and supplementary lighting with an emphasis on the use of off-camera strobes. In order to provide more individualized attention, enrollment will be limited to 10 participants. As always, complementary lunch will be provided on both days by Auntie Em’s Kitchen located in nearby Eagle Rock. Enrollment for the entire 2-day experience prior to January 6th will be $395. On January 7th it will go up to $445, so sign up early to take advantage of the lower rate. For more information about the upcoming workshop and how to sign up, please go to Workshop Sign-Up. [...]

    I’m very interested in this class, primarily for interior photography of staged locations. Do I need an off-camera strobe? I’m not sure that mine supports that without extra hardware.

  9. Douglas Hill says:

    Hi Kalani: Thanks for your interest in our workshop. Although we do use off-camera strobes quite a bit they aren’t essential for all interiors work. And while we will be demonstrating the use of strobes as part of the workshop, we will also show, through a variety of techniques, how to get the best results possible without them. If you let me know the make and model of your camera I’ll be able to tell you whether it will be compatible with the equipment we use. Best regards, Doug

    I have a Nikon D90 with several lenses (Nikon 10-24, 18-70, 70-200 and a 35mm prime (f1.8)), a little SB400 flash. I can borrow a SB800 flash, but I don’t really know how to use it.

  11. Douglas Hill says:

    Your camera and range of lenses will be more than adequate for what we’ll be doing in the workshop. The only accessory you would need in order to use our strobes is the Nikon AS15 Synch Terminal Adapter, which is available for less than $20 online if you don’t already have one.

  12. Kalani says:

    Would this do the same job as the Nikon adapter? It’s cheaper, too, but mostly I like that it has a pass-through hot shoe: RainbowImaging Flash Hot Shoe to PC Sync Socket Convert Adapter for Nikon TTL and Standard ISO 518 Hot Shoe Camera and Flashes:

  13. Douglas Hill says:

    Absolutely a better choice. I’m not sure why Nikon decided to stop including PC sockets on some models since there are still accessories that require them.
