Martyn Boyd lives in Bangor, Northern Ireland. After a long career as a photographer he now enjoys capturing landscape images, mostly of the area where he lives. He also enjoys the challenge of creatively photographing aircraft and is a keen, life-long motorcyclist.
Technically correct architectural photography is a whole field in it's own right with particular skills and equipment requirements. But photographing buildings in a pleasing way creatively can be successfully achieved in a fairly simple way.
I spent much of my professional career working as University Photographer for Queen's University and photographed all of the Campus buildings many times creatively (and technically) for promotional purposes. Come and learn how to capture these beautiful buildings and then be able to apply your new skills to others you may visit.
This is a session for beginners, intending to cover the basics with the aim to get you all shooting on a manual setting.
We will cover Aperture, ISO and Shutter Speed, and get you understanding exposure and using your histogram.
Walking around the Botanic gardens, we will also cover some composition techniques.
This is a very hands-on class, so you’ll have plenty of time to practice your new skills on the day and take lots of shots!
