Driehaus Museum

Back in the Gilded Age, a world of grandeur and ultimate privilege existed for the upper class that, today, has all but disappeared. Thanks to the preservation of the mansion once owned by Samuel Nickerson, a fabulously rich banker of that era, there exists an array of photo ops of this lost world. Your instructor provides lessons in effective approaches for capturing interior scenes of high-ceiling rooms with an accurate rendition of ambient lighting as well as natural lighting that streams in from the oversized windows . You can focus your lens on the rich hues of the interior wooden inlay detail as well as stained glass ceilings, and still lives in the form of hundreds of home design items that were part of the trappings of the well-to-do during the 19th century.
