Short Description:

The course deals mainly with architectural photography through use of medium format view camera (10x12/6x8 cm). The camera's function is covered both from a theroretical as well as a technical point of view, by means of shooting assignments (verical and horizontal perspective corrections, Scheimpflug effect). The course introduces to professionally executed external and internal building views, with or without use of additional artificial lighting, as well as to flat original copy work. During the semester the work of important architectural photographers is presented. A personal building photographic presentation is asked, to be elaborated throughout the semester
