Join pictureline and Evoke Creative on an architectural adventure at the Utah State Capitol Building. Our popular photo walk series continues at this historical structure, originally finished in 1916. Designed by Richard K.A. Kletting and now part of the National Register of Historic Places, the design of this beautiful building adheres to the Corinthian style of architecture, in which formality, order, proportion and line are essential design elements.
This photo walk, sponsored by Fujifilm, will cover the importance of architectural photography, and how to communicate a building’s relationship with context, space and time. We’ll focus specifically on capturing lines, shapes, and unique angles, and exploring details as much as the whole. We’ll also demonstrate the importance of lighting, and how to incorporate people into your architectural shots.
We’ll meet up just inside the east entrance, where we’ll cover a few basics before we begin shooting. Parking is available in the lot on the east side, or in designated areas on the street surrounding the capitol. Be sure to bring your camera and tripod, and an exterior flash if you have one.
Don’t forget to share your photo walk images with us on social media with #pictureline and #evokecreativephotowalk so we can see each other’s work.
Why a photo walk? At pictureline, we don’t just sell cameras—we care about our customers and our community. We’ve found that a fun way to meet other photographers is by organizing photo walks, which are essentially short tours around local points of interest, designed to help hone photography skills, learn new ideas, and experience different places.
And in case you missed it, our Holiday Photo Walk in December took us through downtown Salt Lake City to shoot the sights of the season. Lights were shining and spirits were bright as we made our way around the City Creek area. We learned about white balance, bokeh, how to achieve starburst and other special effects, how to use slow shutter speeds to show motion in a still photo, and how to use lighting for festive family portraits. We came away with some new skills, fantastic photos, and a few new friends.
