People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you.

Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 06 July
Shepherdsville - 10am - 2 Hours
Maree Grosser
Join this session for tips on how to use your camera settings to creatively capture nature in a visually interesting way. We will be looking at composition, focus, and colour.

Many professional offices and places of business have large prints gracing their wall space of things such as fields of flowers, a butterfly perched on a leaf, and a single dew drop on a rose petal. These beautiful images are all around us in nature. It just takes that special "eye" to not only see it but to capture it in a way that will turn that simple little piece of nature into a beautiful piece of art. We will learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make subjects pop.

    While photographing peach blossoms on our property, this Red Admiral butterfly stopped by for a visit. Needless to say, I was surprised to see a butterfly so early in the year. I do hope this is a sign that the butterfly numbers will be up this year. March 16, 2024Fuji X-T3, XF 18-135 zoom lens.

    The picture was taken around 8am, the morning Golden hour is my favorite time by far, especially when there's a little fog or in this case a morning dew. With dew drops clinging to the leaves the bokeh takes on an interesting look of small glowing orbs in the fore and back ground. My camera is a Canon EOS RP, the lens was a 50 mm, shutter speed 125, aperture 1.8, and ISO was 100.

    Title or Location: Louisville, KY shot from across the Ohio River in Indiana at night.
    This photo was taken with a Nikon D750 using an AF Micro Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 D set to f/32 at a 30 second shutter speed second ISO 400 on a tripod. It was a cold & windy night, so I used a 30 second shutter speed to smooth out the water. I stopped all the way down to f/32 to get the star effect on the lights then adjusted the ISO to balance out the exposure. In post I shifted the tint slightly to blue and dehazed the photo and increased the vibrance.

    While visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon for Spring Break this year, we were treated to beautiful blue skies, warm weather, stars AND airglow at night! I was absolutely giddy about seeing those stars! Now I hope you all know how extremely rare this combination is on the pacific coast in spring. It's normally overcast and raining and definitely no stars to be seen. Thank you universe for allowing your magic to flow this evening. I truly appreciate you and your powers ??

    to create this I used a piece of Teal vinyl for the backdrop, I had the camera, with a 30 mm Marco lens on a tripod set to manual focus, with focus staking of 10 shots I only used 5 in the end). for lighting I had two static lights on mini stands so I could play about with their placement to get the effect I was looking for. The dandelion seed was held in place, by putting it into a piece of white tack, I then sprayed it using a little electronic face atomiser (bought from Amazon) and loa

    Title or Location: My house in Lewisville
    Decided to make a composite that resembles the photo that NASA took with their millions of dolllar photo equipment. 2 months ago I photographed the full moon and placed it on top of the most recent solar eclipse photo I took. The moon normally get its light from the sun so getting the perspective with moon visibility is impossible during an eclipse unless you have nasa gear. My photo was taken with a canon R5, RF400mm F2.8 and cropped in.
