Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 15 June
Downtown Fort Wayne - 10am - 2 Hours
Karrine Williams
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.


NOTE: Participants should have basic knowledge of their camera.

Abstract Photography

Abstract Photography

Saturday 29 June
Downtown Fort Wayne - 10am - 2 Hours
Karrine Williams
Abstract photography involves capturing a subject in a way that renders it either partially or completely unrecognizable, emphasizing instead on the interplay of shapes, colors, and form.

In this workshop, we will explore the art of creating striking and thought-provoking images through the use of abstraction.

Our experienced instructor will guide you through the process of understanding and applying the principles of abstract photography, including composition, color, and texture. We will cover topics such as finding inspiration in everyday objects, experimenting with different angles and perspectives.

NOTE: Participants should have basic knowledge of their camera.

Using Light & Shadow in Photography

Using Light & Shadow in Photography

Saturday 10 August
Downtown Fort Wayne - 10am - 2 Hours
Karrine Williams
Light and shadow photography is a type of photography that focuses on capturing the interplay between light and shadow in a particular scene. This style of photography often produces dramatic and compelling images that can evoke strong emotions in the viewer.

Harsh light and the contrast between light and shadow can provide some interesting photo
opportunities, as well as some challenges!

In this meetup, we will be looking at how you can use your camera's settings to nail the exposure.

This class is your time to learn and gain a proper understanding of Composition and the importance of light to help boost your photography skills.

We, as a class, will be photographing a model without any on-camera flash or strobe photography. Just the available light, we will walk through, troubleshoot, make adjustments and capture a portrait successfully.

We will also learn how to use light modifiers like a reflector to help capture appropriately exposed shots in not-so-great lighting

Backlighting, Bokeh and Bursts

Backlighting, Bokeh and Bursts

Saturday 07 September
Downtown Fort Wayne - 11am - 2 Hours
Karrine Williams
We will be using various techniques to maximise the behaviour of the light. Backlighting is one of my favourites and can be used for portraiture or nature. Bokeh is Japanese for blur but is a term used for soft out of focus balls of light which can look very pleasing. Burst in this case is star burst which can be achieved when you have strong areas of light and a correct choice of aperture. Use all three to create some amazing compositions.

    Aye was awesome! Super informative and patient. It ended up being just him & I and he didn't feel like cramming it all in and get out early. He took all time and really got me to know my camera. Highly recommended him and do this as much as he's willing. I really enjoyed it.

    The view is outside my Brother's home in Fort Wayne, IN. We had the garage door open for band practice and saw this beautiful sunset. I saw the dandelion glowing in the light and took a couple shots. This was my favorite composure.

    Title or Location: Eagle Marsh Nature Preserve
    I was hiking in the flooded trails of the nature preserve in my hip waiters. The water was near the top of the waiters waiting to spill in. Luckily it didn?t. As I came across trail 6 that headed towards the side of the train tracks, all a sudden around the corner comes adult swan and the babies! An incredible moment to capture as I stood their watching the babies learn the way of living!

    My family and I arrived early in the morning at the Newfound Gap overlook to hike the trail out to Charlie's Bunyan in the Smoky Mountains. Not expecting to see a sunrise, we arrived at the overlook just in time to see the dawn break. The photo was taken with a Nikon D500 with a Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 G2 lens at 24mm, f/10, ISO-1400, and 1/15 s.

    Title or Location: Eagle Marsh, Fort Wayne, IN
    I had just started my journey with photography, and I was fortunate enough to catch this beautiful foggy sunrise at Eagle Marsh. This is one of the first photos I took where I had a "Wow, I can actually do this!" moment and it was an accelerant to my passion for learning and growing as a photographer. I love that the glow of the sun exposes the frost on the plants in the foreground. It's one of my favorite places to walk and I always seem to find peace when I'm there.

    While photographing this month's total solar eclipse, I was able to capture the last moments before totality. During this phase Baily's beads are revealed, which occurs when the last remaining sliver of sunlight passes over and through the rocky terrain of the Moon, making the light segmented (top). Also visible are the Sun's prominences, the red extensions around the Sun's surface. To capture Baily's beads, which last only for a few seconds, I had to remove my solar filter and adjust my shutter

    For 2 weeks every winter Sydney is lit up with amazing colours and beams of light over the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and various buildings throughout the city. 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.

Takes me back to my days in the Navy and seeing the jets coming and going from Hickam AFB when I was stationed at Pearl Harbor NSY&IMF and would shoot a round of golf at Hickam AFB's Mamala Bay golf course after working on the submarines. A couple of the holes on that course are near the runway for the base. The surprise sound of a

The Superstion Mountains were named Monte Superstition by Spanish conquistadors who arrived in the 1540s. Greedy for gold, they tried to get local Apaches to show them where it was however, believing the area was home to the God of Thunder, they refused for fear of angering him. Apaches believe there's a hole to the
