Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 04 May
Eight Avenue, Gainesville - 10am - 2 Hours
Katrine Dunn
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.

Downtown Ocala - 10am - 2 Hours
Ocala Photography Group
Kaley Wallace
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 was going to the court house (Jury duty!) and I saw this gentleman sitting there. I liked the composition and the shadow with the chairs and I shot it with my Iphone. I've shot for over 40 years and I always say the the best camera is the one you have in your hands when you need to take a picture!

    This photo was captured from the back of a dirtbike while riding the trails. We noticed the horses grazing in the pasture across in front of the majestic evening sky. I'm so grateful I had my DSLR with me and I was able to capture this skate before the sun dipped below the clouds.

    Dearing the eclipse of 2017 my family and I sat in our backyard here in WA to watch the 93 totality with our eclipse glasses. With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I

    I took this image on Nov. 2, 2021 at 7 am on Nov. 2, 2001 at 7 am. As I was driving around the Cove I came upon this Buck as I came up over a rise. I had a feeling that he was about to cross the road. My hunch was right. He crossed one fence and eventually crossed the other one. I was ready for his movement. I took a series over shots. It was very exciting.Canon EF 100-400 f4.5 - 5.6L ISO 4,000 f8 1/200s

    Canon EOS 800DEF 75-300 f/4-5.675mm1/640F4.5ISO 200I was out practicing my technique. Had spent a little while chasing squirrels around the park. This took me to an area of the park I had not been in. The way these two tulips were complete opposites and yet seem to lean on each other drew my attention to them.
