Capture unique and abstract photos of the architecture around you.

Skillshare Premium Members are invited to join us on Tuesday, February 9th at 3:00 PM EST for a live online Zoom session with photographer Cyn Lagos all about how she finds inspiration in architecture. The session will run for approximately 60 minutes. Click the “Remind Me” button above to register! 

Cyn Lagos is a Latin American visual storyteller with a focus on street photography. Her unique photography work has been highlighted by companies like Facebook, Google, Instagram, and Adobe. Because of her personal journey as an immigrant pursuing the American Dream, Cyn has embarked on a mission to inspire social change and educate the world on conscious visual storytelling—something she’s already done with over 5,000 students on Skillshare.

This live session will include:

  • An exploration of how to find a unique composition when you’re shooting a huge building that you can’t move or direct
  • Suggestions for different ways to play with shapes, patterns, light, and shadow to create beautiful shots of your city
  • A live editing session where Cyn will demonstrate how she edits on Lightroom for mobile so she can finalize her photos on the go

Cyn will be providing some RAW photos so you can practice editing alongside her, or you’re welcome to bring shots of your own to play with. Throughout the session, you’ll be encouraged to work alongside Cyn and ask questions. Feel free to add questions in advance of the event using the discussion forum below, or bring them live to the Zoom session. We look forward to seeing you soon!
