Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Sunday 02 June
Kingfield Rd - 12pm - 2 Hours
Giorgos Chatzakis
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.

Product photography involves capturing images of products with the intention of displaying, promoting, and highlighting certain features of a product.

Our Product Photography session will be conducted in a controlled studio environment where we will explore lighting, composition and techniques to capture great shots in camera.

Benefits of studio product photography:

Control: In a studio, the photographer has complete control over the lighting, background, and other elements of the scene. This allows for precise and consistent results.

Flexibility: Within the studio environment, the photographer can create the type of environment or atmosphere they desire, with coloured backgrounds or other elements plus props and lighting.

    Title or Location: Leatherhead Theatre
    I am a professional theatre photographer. This was taken during the dress rehearsal for a dance show for a local dance company. The lighting was set and I had no control over it. I had to set the camera to suit the conditions. There was no flash and it was all set in the camera. I set the camera to F4 250th iso5000. I have a decent camera so I wasn't worried about the high iso. I followed the dancer and when she went for the move I was set to capture it.

It was a cloudy night so we didn't get to see any of it. But a thunderstorm was was approaching and "heat lightning" was seen in the distance. As it got closer, the lightning strikes were getting more and more visible even though the storm was still miles away. So I repositioned my camera and

    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.
