Friday 05 July
Wentworth Falls Picnic Area - 7pm - 2 Hours
Blue Mountains Photographers
Robert Palejs
Do you gaze up at the night sky with wonder?

What about looking up at the stars and thinking, how old that light you are seeing is?

Maybe you watch as day and night morph into one, and the stars come out to play.

This meetup is going to cover everything you need to know to start capturing amazing single-shot astrophotography and a few extra bits of helpful advice. The learned basics of capturing a single frame will form the building blocks of your astrophotography journey. Think of this meetup as your first step on that journey or for those who have already started, maybe a road sign.

Astrophotography looks amazing and packs a real punch, however, you do not need to spend a fortune to partake. Does gear make a difference, the simple answer is yes, but it is not the deciding factor when it comes to astrophotography.

This meetup will look at planning your session, camera settings, and required equipment. I want this meetup to help you maximize your current gear as your start capturing milky way shots.

Street Photography

Saturday 06 July
Arthur and Illawarra Road - 9am - 2 Hours
Sutherland Photography Group
Geoffrey Chuah
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you.

We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 20 July
Centennial Park - 10am - 2 Hours
Parramatta Photography Group
Ali Vaziri
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.

We are all creative beings. We cannot be taught creativity. We can be taught how to unravel it from within, capture it and use it.
This workshop is about learning how to recognise it and use it to solve problems, communicate, capture images and generate new ideas.
We will go through all the different ways we see it within our own lives and how we can use it to communicate it through our images.

    Last February, I left Sydney with my friends at 6pm to capture the first Milky Way view of 2024. I was very anxious because I saw a lot of clouds on the way, but I was really happy to see clear skies as I passed Newcastle. When we arrived at the lighthouse, fortunately we were the only ones in the group, so we were able to take photos without any disturbance. The lighthouse light, which was not too bright, was very helpful in filming.
