In this photography workshop for beginner and intermediate photographers, (and advanced if you’d like to shoot some pretty cool spaces!) in conjunction theAbandoned America web site, Matthew Christopher will focus on how to tackle shooting in abandoned buildings, one of the more challenging environments in which to take photographs. These spaces often have poor lighting and extreme contrasts; learning how to manage them and produce better pictures can help in a variety of other situations as well. We will cover what camera settings work best, how to compose images to get the best results, and some editing techniques that can improve your photographs.
We will photograph a total of five vacant buildings: the Max Levy Autograph Building, on Roberts Ave., as well as a group of four buildings—a gorgeous 19th century stone church and mansion on Germantown Avenue, along with a 20th century theater and school— that was sold at Sheriff’s Sale after the non-profit owner went out of business.
