Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 11 March
Between the Annex and Park HQ on Park Headquarters Road - 1pm - 2 Hours
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. The botanical gardens should make it fairly easy to find things worthy of photographing so that we can learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make them pop!

Street Photography

Street Photography

Saturday 25 March
Campus Martius - 1pm - 2 Hours
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.

    Great location for the event. I wanted to get back in the rhythm of street photography. Kanajah was very helpful with her advice for taking photos. She had some great suggestions for other place to take photos in the Detroit area

    Sean arrived right on time. He was patient and extremely helpful. He answered all of my questions and and took time to explain things I didn't quite understand. I learned some techniques that were new to me and I'm looking forward to practicing them. I had a great time and would be glad to attend another session.
