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

    Apologies, I sent the wrong dimension on the first file I uploaded. I accidentally set the long edge to 200 pixels rather than 2000 pixels. The corrected image is attached.

    I was focusing on a Marsh Harrier and when I put the camera down I saw this Robin perched on the edge of my table. He just stared at me and patiently waited as I reset the camera. I still had my zoom on and almost fell off my seat leaning to get focus. The images of this bird are among my favourite sets....

    Castle Hill is an amazing location for Landscape and Astro photography. Used a Nikon Z6ii & 20mm 1.8 lens along with a lens warmer plus the Photo Pills planner.The moon was brighter than expected - 5 days old but it actually did us a big favour in lighting up the rocks with the Milky Way core above it. This is the jpeg with no edits.

    I was on a photo workshop in the park with about 8 others. We set up for the night in the Cathedral Overlook campground. 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.

    Title or Location: Rocky Mountain National Park
    The day before taking the shot, I drove up to RMNP to scout a possible Milky Way shot with Nymph Lake in the foreground. The scouting was successful as it did look like I'd be able to have both the lake and the Milky Way in the shot, so I made a plan to head up there again the next day (July 3rd) and capture what I planned. Prior to heading back up to RMNP, while looking at the map of the area, I noticed another possible location where Fall River would be in the foreground and in my mind, having
