Nature Photography Meetup

Sunday 25 August
Surrey Road - 10am - 2 Hours
Rooh Yaseen
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.

50mm Lens Meetup

50mm Lens Meetup

Sunday 21 July
Southsea, Portsmouth - 10am - 2 Hours
Portsmouth Photography Group
Jon Mainwaring
The 50mm lens is one of the flexible and useful lenses in any photographer’s gear bag. It is neither a wide-angle or telephoto lens, but allows the camera to see on the same scale as your eye. As such, it can be used for a variety of styles, from landscape and street photography to portrait and product photography. In this meetup, we’ll review the basic camera settings. We’ll then cover some of the advantages of shooting with a prime lens, and some basic techniques to using the 50mm lens. As always, there will be ample opportunities for you to put your new knowledge into practice.

Backgrounds and Bokeh Photography Meetup

Backgrounds and Bokeh Photography Meetup

Saturday 14 September
Palmerston Rd, Southampton - 2pm - 2 Hours
Southampton Photography Group
Nikki Wileman
Watch your back(ground)! For many beginners and those just getting to grips with manual camera settings spending time selecting the correct aperture and shutter speed to perfectly expose the subject is, rightly, essential.

But it is very easy to be so focused (no pun intended!) on this that other elements receive less attention. One of these often-overlooked elements is the background, and this meetup will be an opportunity to learn how to improve composition by, simply, considering the background. We'll be exploring colour, light, pattern, blur, etc and how to use the environment / context to really show off the subject.

    Great tuition. Taruun explained things really clearly, then talked us through practical examples. I now have a much better understanding of leading lines, (especially where to place the camera), and filling the frame. My biggest takeaway was using low angles to create interesting images - something I'll definitely be using. I really enjoyed the morning and also Taruun's thorough but relaxed teaching style.

    This was an excellent event, Taruun was incredibly knowledgable and also very talented as a photographer. He has a great instructional and delivery manner, a naturally engaging teacher, and we were blessed to have someone so enthusiastic to share this knowledge. We were taught some excellent tips and techniques, I do already have some photography experience and I took away a good few pearls of wisdom. Very worthwhile, good atmosphere, first class in my opinion!

At about 3:30 am, the leader got us up and we drove, then hiked to this spot. We took astro shots, then waited in place for a couple hours until early light on the cathedral formations. This is was a merging of the two exposures that created this image.
