Natural Light Portraits

Blevins Gap Nature Preserve - 3pm - 2 Hours

This meet-up will explore how we can take beautiful portraits using natural light and backgrounds. We will explore how to recognise flattering light and how to manipulate it whilst shooting in a less controlled environment than a studio. We will explore how we can work collaboratively with our subject to achieve a portrait that captures their personality and style. We will also look at posing and setting your subject at ease. Technical learning points will include accurate focusing and metering for skin tones.

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.

    I enjoyed meeting Nate and the other photographers. I had a wonderful experience.
    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.
    I really enjoyed it and Nate was very helpful.

    It was very good. Thank you.

    I saw this blue jay flying along Chattohoochee River on the Phenix City, AL side. I was standing on top of a wooden walkway bridge and it was in my view and then it started to pose for me.

    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.

    This photo was taken after cruising into Olden and taking the Loen Skylift, at the top of which are many trails. We took one away from the crowd and came across this little stream which lined up nicely with what I expect is it's destination. Taken on a Sony RX10IV
