Architecture Photography

Saturday 25 May
Downtown Fort Wayne - 10am - 2 Hours
Karrine Williams
Architectural photography can be a great way of exploring and documenting a city, whether it's your home or on holiday. Its about capturing not only the design and accurate representation of a building, but to have the shots be aesthetically pleasing to the viewer's eye. An architectural photographer makes pictures, not takes pictures.

In this session, we will be covering how to better understand Architecture photography and we'll be looking at ways to take some impressive shots and the camera settings to use.

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.

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.

    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.

    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 in the park taking pictures of Robins hunting worms in the grass and saw a flutter out of the corner of my eye. Looked up and saw this beautiful Red Tailed Hawk sitting in a tree near the basketball court watching a pick-up game of basketball. Tons of people around and he wasn't bothered in the slightest.

    I took this photo after work on the night of Friday 5-10-24. I was seeing posts about people seeing the northern lights as low as Oklahoma. I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

    Photo of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) taken on New Brighton promenade on Friday 10th May 2024 (around 11:53pm) - the night when the Northern Lights was visible from much of the UK.I'd be thinking of heading out to try and catch a photo of the Northern Lights for the past few weeks as had seen notifications on various apps and on Facebook that there might be a chance of seeing them. I finally decided to go out and see if I could see them on that evening, and I was extremely lucky tha

    Title or Location: Royal International Air Tattoo, Fairford, Gloucestershire
    I started taking my son to RIAT in 2008 when he was just six years old. He had to follow Dad, and would be seen armed with my old Canon 350D. I was using a Canon 40D and Canon 100-400mm L series lens at the time.RIAT is wholly dependant upon the right weather for good photography. Cloud too low - display routines are changed. Too much cloud and rain - the background is too grey. The weather can also be too good, leaving bright blue, but boring backgrounds. Thankfully July 18, 2009 provided goo

    Title or Location: Near Duluth, Minnesota, USA
    Knowing there was a high chance of seeing the aurora borealis, I left work early on Friday, May 10. First, I stopped at my local camera store to buy a new lens I had been dreaming about (14-24mm f2.8). Then I drove to Minnesota to meet up with another photographer. By 1am, we found ourselves by this lake. I often found myself admiring the aurora and not taking pictures. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced.
