Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 29 June
Owens Cross Roads, AL - 3pm - 2 Hours
Nathan Clark
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.

Street Photography

Street Photography

Saturday 17 August
Downtown Huntsville - 2pm - 2 Hours
Nathan Clark
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.

We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

    It was informative and I was able to get some questions answered. Nate was kind enough to let me use his camera and help me troubleshoot the issues with my camera.

    This was taking one brisk morning downtown HSV, in the back alley of the Cotton Row Restaurant. I just loved the old building to new building back ground and the shoes hanging from the the power lines to me just gives it that big city vibe.

    Merlin is an alumnus of Huntsville Animal Services whom I adopted about 2 years ago. I work from home full-time and am a full-time student at UAH. When I am working or studying Merlin is my constant companion. He enjoys sleeping on my laptop and receiving head scratches, treats, and general adoration from anyone who sees him. He is a silly cat who should have been born orange but I think his mom ran out of toner when he came along!No editing was done with the photo - I wanted Merlin's charm

    Title or Location: North Alabama Sailing Marina, Guntersville, AL
    I was heading to Guntersville one morning to photograph eagles at the lake and came in along Hwy 69. As I got to the lake, I noticed the sailboats and the dawn breaking over the mountains. I made a quick U-turn to find a parking spot and walked to the marina. I didn?t have my tripod with me, so I set my timer delay and braced myself as well as I could to get a crisp 1/10 second exposure.

    For 2 weeks every winter Sydney is lit up with amazing colours and beams of light over the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and various buildings throughout the city. I captured this photo of the Opera House from across the water at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.
