Description

This subject introduces students to photography's historic, aesthetic, technical and contemporary role in architecture. Through lectures, workshops and practical assignments, the fundamental principles of photography are addressed, practised and appreciated, and provide a framework to architectural photography techniques and methodology, and function as a medium to understanding architecture.

Key objectives include: reinforcing fundamental photographic principles such as composition, light, movement and form; developing photographic methodology; experiencing the vagaries of location conditions and how to manage them; pre- and post-production considerations; and appreciating concepts, context and relevance of photography.

The subject provides a balance between lecture-based learning, studio workshops, tutorial critiques, practical demonstrations and location assignments. It refines photographic composition and technique while developing an understanding of and appreciation for architectural photography and its role in the practice of design.

An understanding of basic camera craft is desirable and a digital camera with manual exposure controls and a tripod are required for this subject.
