Architecture- and industrial photography in digital medium format (EN)

On April 13 and 14, 2019 p: photography unlimited will host the two-day workshop “Architecture and Industrial Photography in the Digital Medium Format” in cooperation with ALPA and Phase One. The following weekend the workshop will be held in English.

Architectural photography is often referred to as the “supreme discipline” of photography, since it not only places very high demands on the quality of the material, but also requires a trained eye and a good spatial understanding of buildings on the part of the photographers. This discipline has always been a domain of large formats and cameras with the possibility of perspective corrections such as shift and tilt.

In the two-day workshop “Architecture and Industrial Photography in the Digital Medium Format”, the max. 10 participants work out their personal perspective on an outstanding building of industrial history in Oberschöneweide and its use on the first day. The focus will be on the design possibilities with cameras from the manufacturer ALPA and digital backs from PhaseOne. Among others, the brand new ALPA Plus and the new IQ 150 MP are available.

The second day of the workshop will be dedicated to the development of the image series, the special features of PhaseOne CaptureOne (such as Lens Color Cast Correction and Distortion Correction) and the fine art print of some selected images with large format printers (such as Epson). The course is led by specialists from ALPA, Phase One and Alexander Schippel (architectural photographer and board member of p: photography unlimited e.V.).

The locations: The industrial area in Oberschöneweide was one of the most important industrial locations in Germany and is closely linked to the history of AEG, which rose from here to become a global industrial group. Industrial buildings designed by architects such as Peter Behrens (founding member of the Munich Secession and the Deutscher Werkbund) still characterise the district today.

The rooms of p: photography unlimited e.V. are located in house 15 of the former battery factory (AFA/VARTA). On the loft-like ground floor, the large training room and the digital laboratory are available for the workshop.
