Fairlie-Poplar Historic District is part of the central business district in downtown Atlanta and named for the two cross streets in the center of the area. Many of the buildings are from the 19th and early 20th centuries and include a myriad of architectural styles from Renaissance revival and Victorian to art deco and Georgian revival. Many of the buildings are listed in the National Register of Historic Places and your instructor will talk to you about options in angles, perspectives and juxtaposition with the sky or adjacent buildings.
You will photograph everything from the architecture to the characters walking down the street. It can be overwhelming to try to capture so many different elements and details at one time, but your instructor will give you the tools you need to confidently shoot one great image after another.
During the shoot, you will learn the secrets of the trade from professional photographers and new compositional techniques such as how to bring out the colors in nature and city, approach strangers for their photograph or catch them without their notice. Learn to use light and shadow to highlight certain details in your subjects.
