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.

    I haven?t gone to one of these get together a in a long time. I use to go to the Phoenix Photography group gatherings and have always enjoyed being around people that love photography as much as I do. It was nice to meet the people in the group. I am not sure if I will make it back to another one of these since I realize that they are really far from were I live but if there is ever one closer to home I will consider it.

I pulled out my Note20 Ultra, hoping to get a shot of the birds, against the sunset. I was somewhat successful. I didn't have time to get a better sh
