Handbridge - 10am - 2 Hours
Cheshire Photography Group
Carolina Gorman Batlles
Come and join us as we explore composition in photography.

Composition is one of the most critical element in photography. Composition is how a photographer arranges the visual elements within their image, frame. I promise you that if you search for information on composition you will find plenty You will find formal rules, opinion, some of which you can trace back to historical art movements and painters.

Even in the digital world, composition remains the key to creating strong images. Composition is what guides our eye through an image and gives importance to the subject. It creates the story for the viewer and how we as photographers convey that message.

This meetup will explore composition using our frame and tools available to us as the photographer.

Backlighting, Bokeh and Bursts

Backlighting, Bokeh and Bursts

Saturday 16 March
Park Rd W, Wolverhampton - 10am - 2 Hours
Wolverhampton Photography Group
Andrew Martin
We will be using various techniques to maximise the behaviour of the light. Backlighting is one of my favourites and can be used for portraiture or nature. Bokeh is Japanese for blur but is a term used for soft out of focus balls of light which can look very pleasing. Burst in this case is star burst which can be achieved when you have strong areas of light and a correct choice of aperture. Use all three to create some amazing compositions.

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.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the event & learnt a lot about this genre of photography. Jamie's passion & enthusiasm for street photography was clearly evident & very inspiring. Jamie was able to discuss camera settings & techniques at all levels from basic through to advanced. He continually made suggestions on how to capture different images on the street with real time examples. Overall I highly recommend Jamie & the Street Photography workshop.

    Punctual and Friendly providing a relaxed start. Was very knowledgeable and had a game plan. Spent time with course members giving individual advice and guidance. Offered suggestions on camera settings and techniques. Also suggested possible photo opportunities. At this point (2 days after event) I would consider another course date. Now waiting on follow up information. Hence 4 and not 5

    Working on trying new things! Plucked this Puff out of my front yard flower bed. Used a small compact mirror to create the shot using natural daylight thorough the window. The black and white spoke drama with such a simple subject. Taken with Canon rebel t7 and efs 18-55mm f/3.5-6.6Settings 1/60 f5.6

    Title or Location: My back garden in Hemel Hempstead
    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula

    This is part of a huge street art display, a real gem in Leeds. I loved the different displays of hands walking, creates a real sense of movement and intrigue. Photo was taken around 11am. The light you see shining on the hand is from a wall light. Camera setting - F4.2, 1/400 shutter and ISO 200.
