When it comes to urban city photography, sometimes all it takes to see things differently… is to see things differently. In this session, Layne takes us up a few flights of stairs to some rooftops for a whole different view of the urban landscape. From a higher viewpoint, you’ll get some fresh ideas on subject selection and composition. You’ll get some tips on ISO settings and depth of field tactics, and Layne explains how to shoot a great panoramic series to stitch together in post-production.

Shadows and reflections look completely different from above in urban city photography, and you’ll see how to create a story that you could never see from ground level. You’ll also get some pointers on selecting for color play.
