Hi guys! So, this week, I'm hosting another Architecture Photography meet up.

We will also see how to work with reflection on buildings, and light to shape your pictures in a better way. I hope seeing you there! Sanro PS: This meet-up is only for people that have already some basic knowledge of photography such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, and they are able to change all these 3 settings by themselves in the camera with no issues. If people without this knowledge join the meet-up, it will disrupt the meetup and make a worse experience for the rest. Please, join a Beginners Class if you need help with that, and I'll be glad to spend the time teaching you all the basics.

Flora was really knowledgeable and patient with us beginners. She was very helpful and gave us challenges and lots of feedback, and tips for the future. Lots to think about! We benefitted from some dropouts in our session so that we had even more 1-on-1 time with the instructor than we normally would have. Flora was very encouraging.
