Selective Colour Photography

Selective Colour Photography

Saturday 25 May
Paddington - 12pm - 2 Hours
Eastern Suburbs Photography Group
Mel Koutchavlis
Selective colour photography refines your visual agility and gives images impact.
Using backgrounds, foregrounds and other objects as the focus, we can create colourful and whimsical shots.
Concentrating on selective colour in a shot expands your eye, showing you things you might not have otherwise seen,
which in-turn advances your skills and creativity to see things from a different perspective.

Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 01 June
Mrs Macquaries Road - 10am - 2 Hours
North Shore Photography Group
Peace Brown
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.

Let him guide you through some of the architectural landmarks that surround the Sydney Harbour Bridge. He will not only point out what to shoot, but also how to shoot it. This is an exciting meetup that will enlighten you in more ways than none.

Intro to Astro Photography

Intro to Astro Photography

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.

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.

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.

    Early one Autumn morning I took a drive to Camden when I saw the hotair balloon in the distance, which compelled me to pull over to take a shot. To my surprize, I was confronted with a complete different scene which included some horses busy grazing and a beautiful tree, lit by the morning sun. Atbthis point the balloon became secondary, but added to the drama of the image.

Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to
