Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 06 July
S Arroyo Blvd - 9am - 2 Hours
Pasadena Photography Group
Rolando Salas
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.

    Alex is very personable. I enjoyed the area. I feel as though more teaching could have been done. Most of the class kept asking him questions and it turned more into a question and answer for whoever he was talking too.

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.

    This little guy waited for me to focus, refocus and take a few steps closer and posed like a pro, moving his head from side to side so I could capture his best side. He was quite happy to cooperate for a minute or two!Shot with a Nikon Z50
