Architectural photography

Last week I attended a great course at the V&A, run by renowned architectural photographer Dennis Gilbert. Not only did I pick up lots of tips on composition and Photoshop, and some knowledge about architectural commissions, but the really fun part for me was being able to try out some large format architectural cameras with Leaf digital backs, which were amazing (of course I want one now).  We were also shown the V&A's print room, where they hold lots of original prints by photographers like William Eggleston and Walker Evans. Definitely a recommended resource.
