One Day MIT Stata Center Photography Workshop
Saturday April 16th, 2016 9am-1pm $75
Designed by renowned architect Frank O. Gehry, the Stata Center is meant to carry on Building 20’s innovative and serendipitous spirit, and to foster interaction and collaboration across many disciplines.
Join us as we set out to capture this wonderfully quirky building.
When the building opened in 2004, Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Robert Campbell wrote in the Boston Globe that the building is “a work of architecture that embodies serious thinking about how people live and work, and at the same time shouts the joy of invention.”
Our joy will be creating stunning photographs, learning and having fun.
The first part of the workshop we will discuss architectural photography and tips, and although this building defies any notion of “standard” many of the same rules apply. We will discuss aperture, shutter speed, depth of field and other technical subjects to advance your understanding of your camera, but also cover composition and how to use the colors, shapes and light to pull your viewer into your images.
The class will be limited to 9 students keeping the instructor to student ratio low so make sure you get on board early. Bring your questions! As in all classes topics may include: aperture, shutter speed, proper exposure, exposure compensation, focus, metering, point of view, composition, light.
