You'll practice both interior and exterior photography using these iconic buildings, with a focus on the artistic principles of lines and balance.

You'll get to explore some photographic magic in this class as well, as your teacher will show you how to use reflections and the play of light to capture interesting images, and how to use the technique of over-exposure to create an ethereal feel.
