Instagram Workshop

The Instagram Workshop about architecture took place last week-end and I was one of the lucky participants who got selected!
Architecture photography is not one of my strong points so I saw it as the perfect opportunity to learn new tricks and get the feeling for it.
The workshop was sponsored by the Vienna Tourist board, which I want to thank again here!
The lunch was paid for and I guess everyone is like me and loves a free meal :)

It was fun to meet other Instagramers or Igers as one calls them in person and to put a face to the online name.
Such nice and fun people! Instagram is a great way to connect with people and even to get to know them and Vienna better.

We first had a short introduction by Tim Hatton alias the.hat on Instagram and then explored MQ for some picture material.
It was so much fun to explore a specific place with other photographers to search for the perfect angle and a unique setting, knowing that others are on the same look out. It was not really a competition but I saw it as a challenge for myself, to get the most interesting architectural picture I could get.
The pictures we took were analysed and then we headed for lunch at MQ Kantine, where I had a yummy pita haloumi.
Then we strolled through the first district towards the building of Sparkasse since the event of Open House took place.
I totally forgot to write about Open House but I guess all Viennese were informed about that in the news anyway.
On that week-end private houses and offices or buildings that are normally not open for the public could be visited and some places even had tours.
Great opportunist to explore unknown places! It will take place next year again in case you missed it.

Anyways, we then headed for the economic university campus which has a really interesting and new architectural design, which you can see for yourself.

I do enjoy my food photography more since I can be creative and arrange my setting to my liking whereas a building is placed and you have to find the best angle by running around and looking for different perspectives ;)

  1. zwei super orte, die ihr euch dafür ausgesucht habt. im MQ hab ich sowas auch schon mal gemacht, da sind einige bilder für mein uralt-projekt formen/muster entstanden. am campus muss ich mich auch mal umsehen, da gibts ja wirklich einiges zu sehen.

    1. Ja bei beiden war ich schon mal aber wenn man nicht so oft dort ist, sieht man dann doch Sachen die einem vorher nicht so aufgefallen sind und immer was neues. Der Campus ist echt super zum fotografieren :)
