Archicapture - An Architecture Photography Workshop

NOV 25, 2017      11.00 am - 02.00 pm

Please bring along your own cameras. Phone cameras will do as well.

Architecture, they say, is frozen music. There is a strange joy in observing the perfect details of a well designed building, or the markings of time on an age-old monument. If you are an architecture or photography enthusiast, we are sure your camera is often engaged in the task of immortalizing these observations.

Now you can do just that, in a much more professional way, with the 'exposure’ this workshop offers! Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, in collaboration with Open Bracket, presents ArchiCapture an intensive workshop on Architectural Photography. This workshop teaches how to use your camera to capture the beauty of an architectural design.

This branch of photography is different from the rest since it is aware of even the smallest details as it presents a building in the best way possible. Managing quality of light, choosing the right angles, and composing with props are just a few of the tips and tricks using which, any aspiring photographer will be able to do justice to a building’s distinct character.

Hurry up and register if you love photographing buildings around you, or even if you have hardly noticed them before: because this experience, quite literally, will make you see Architecture through a whole new lens!

About the artist:

This workshop will be conducted by our guest artist Deepshikha Jain. She is an Architectural, Industrial and Travel Photographer from Mumbai, India. After graduating in Architecture from Mumbai, she pursued a Master’s in Photography from Paris.

She can easily be seen as a hybrid, having embraced one world without abandoning the other. Having a flair for Travel and Architecture/ Infrastructure, she has travelled across continents, sometimes just to see why a certain piece of architecture or infrastructure was so rated and at times to be mesmerized by it.

Deepshikha has worked with over 25 magazines including, Domus, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Vogue Casa, Architectural Digest, Architectural Review, GQ, Platform, Indian Express and Design Detail and has been featured in Cosmopolitan, Tasveer Journal.
