2 day teens workshop on architectural photography
The Brandenburg Gate, the Victory Column, the TV Tower and the Reichstag are the most well-known landmarks in Berlin and everyone has a certain image of these buildings in their heads or often in their own photo archives. Historic columns, curved shapes, glass domes or high portals make up the characteristic architecture of every building and can be highly symbolic. They are immediately recognizable and are often photographed as a popular motif. Just almost always in a similar way – how boring! All have to do is change the perspective.
This workshop aims to convey what it means to sharpen perception and focus, to use a certain technical know-how when choosing a motif and to find an exciting point of view when looking through the lens.
