Nature Photography Meetup

Sunday 16 June
Bullard Avenue - 3pm - 2 Hours
Surprise Photography Group
Farah Kanaan
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 was in the backyard to check out plants this past Sunday late afternoon. Noticed the Mexican Bird of Paradise blooming like crazy. So, I took my DSLR and 90 mm macro (1:1) lens and took a few shots with just a monopod. It was windy but I somehow managed to take a few shots with minimal focusing issue. Manual settings: f/2.8, ISO 100, 1/1000 sec. No flash, no diffuser, no reflector. Stacked handful shots. The hot yellow-red petals and pollens are huge attractions to honey bees. There were bees

    Unfortunately, I was not carrying my camera, at the time. I was carrying my bongo backpack, walking along the beach, towards an area that was known to have street musicians. I was hoping to sit in with them. I put the backpack down to adjust my folding stool. I noticed how beautiful the sunset had become and I could hear the birds, in the distance. 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

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.

My goal on this evening was to take full advantage of the position of the milky way as there are very few opportunities that you can photograph the milky way positioned near the bridge during the year. I found this photo with other ones from that night I had not edited. Astro photography needs conditions to be right in relation to moon,
