But if you are not that familiar with Photoshop, don't worry, we have some introductory Photoshop videos that will guide you along the way. You will need a digital camera with a wide angle lens. For full frame sensor cameras a lens around 16-35 is perfect and if you have a cropped APS sensor camera then a wide angle lens around 10-20 will work as well. If you don't have lenses in that range but do have a wide angle lens then use it for the course and learn what you need for later purchase. You need a good tripod and a cable release or wireless device to trigger your camera. I also recommend wireless triggers to fire the strobe/flashes. This course covers lighting extensively and includes several techniques. You will learn how to shoot architecture without lights, with strobes and umbrellas, also with a flash unit. What they are saying: "Hi Charlie. Thanks a million, your course was/is absolutely awesome and I've learnt a lot. The best is I've already started applying the knowledge gained and it made a big difference in the way that I take photos as well as in the post processing stages.I would recommend this course to everybody doing architectural and real estate photography. I'll definitely work through this course again and again, in order to learn as much as I can.Thanks again!Kind regards and have a great day."Henk "I have never seen such a detailed and comprehensive set of lessons in all my online experiences and I have been taking courses since 2005. The detail and explicit directions are just what the newbie needs. I have not engaged in architectural photography before and so this was a added bonus for me. I have previously taken courses with Charlie, and he is my ace when it comes to flash, but now also when I wish to learn more about photographing buildings and homes. Don't look any further!" -Fran S. This course was the second tutorial that I purchased on architectural photography. The other course was by a photography blog and had "some" great information but it just wasn't the same as this course. The advantage of this course is Charlie's methodical pace and detailed instruction coupled with Udemy's convenient interface. I have watched this course on my desktop, phone, tablet, in a waiting room, in bed, in my shed, in my car, and all of the devices have tracked my progress flawlessly. On my other course all I received was the video footage, 2 files to edit and a rudimentary table of contents with time markers for topics covered. They didn't even put in chapter markers for me! The videos had to be loaded on each device I owned and I had to write down the minute markers where I left off to continue watching later. (Very frustrating and that course was over $100) If you're a busy professional and want a course that is ready whenever and wherever you are, this is great! Lastly, the deal I got on the course was ridiculous for such valuable content.-Milton V. Dear Mr Borland, Your "Mastering Architecture and Real Estate Photography" course really helped me dramatically improve my real estate photography and bring it to a higher level. I am currently working as a realtor in Athens Greece and looking at the photos of properties we have in the internet was really disappointing. Three months ago I decided to do something about it and I had a discussion with the owner of the Real Estate Agency and proposed to him to let me photograph at least the most expensive properties. Although I convinced him that I could do it and although I own a DSLR camera and have an experience with photography, I was feeling insecure about the quality of my photos. Therefore, I decided to search the internet for relevant courses and articles that might help me improve my RE photography and this is how I saw your course offered through Udemy. I immediately bought it and today I am so glad I did. It is very comprehensive and analytical, with a step-by-step guide of all the techniques you need to use in order to have a great result. It basically covers every aspect of Architecture and Real Estate Photography from the exterior to all the interior spaces and from a day to a dusk photo shoot of a property. The course has helped me a lot also with all the post processing techniques that it offers, which are again explained in a very comprehensive way. Going through all the lessons and applying all the techniques I learned through the course, with just the basic gear of a camera, wide angle lens and a tripod, gave me the confidence I was missing before purchasing the course. I have already done a few photo shoots for the company and every day I am being asked to shoot more and more properties. Thank you for helping me realize my dream, - Katerina. What am I going to get from this course? Learn a variety of techniques to photograph architecture and real estate properties. How to find the best angle How to light with flash or strobe lights How to fix bad color How to achieve perfect interior light and exterior light How to photograph a room or a hotel What is the target audience? Aspiring photographers Pro photographers expanding to new areas Real estate agents What are the requirements? Camera, wide angle lens, tripod, cable release or wireless camera trigger. The use of flash or strobes is covered but owning that equipment is not required. Photoshop is demonstrated throughout the course. You do not have to use Photoshop and can use other programs if they will allow compositing of images.
