Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 13 July
S Hempstead Rd., Westerville - 10am - 2 Hours
Heather Myers
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.

Street Photography

Street Photography

Saturday 27 July
Dublin - 10am - 2 Hours
Heather Myers
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.

Macro Photography Meetup

Macro Photography Meetup

Saturday 10 August
S Hempstead Rd., Westerville - 9am - 2 Hours
Heather Myers
Macro photography is a unique form of photography that involves photographing small objects to make them look life-sized or more significant in the photo. The usual subjects include flowers and small insects, which we don't normally get to see up close with the naked eye.

The class will start when the insects are more active. So be ready to explore and capture breathe-taking macro images.

    Encouraging and informative. What was learned was what I needed to hear. Thank you!
    This was my first event and to be honest, I was hesitant to sign up because I wasn't sure what I would get out of it. But, this was great! Cheyenne did a great job instructing, making us part of the event and giving feedback. Her instruction was perfect! She is very energetic and passionate about photography and it showed in her interaction and instruction. I can't wait to sign up for another event!!
    I thought it was a very good event. I especially appreciated the one-on-one attention Cheyenne gave me. No other meetup leader has spent that much time with me. I'm look forward to taking another one of Cheyenne's classes!

    I absolutely loved it and would recommend it to anyone interested in photography.
    Cheyenne Stone was amazing . She took the time to go over each person camera and show us some base setup for our camera. When I came I had no clue what my camera could do, but when I left I had a good understanding of how to take pictures. .
    This was a ton of fun and really gave me a ton of insight to night photography and how to adjust my camera. Isaiah was a terrific coach and teacher! Definitely want to do more classes with him!

    It was a really nice class and I learned a lot. I would definitely do another class.

    After hearing for several days that there was "a chance" that we might see the Aurora Borealis, I prepped my gear (Sony A7iii with a 14mm Wide Angle Lens and my Tripod) on the off-chance that we would actually see the lights. I stepped out on my deck at about 10pm on Friday night (May 10th) and could faintly see that something was happening. Suddenly a portion of the sky turned fuschia and kept changing and moving. I ran in and hurriedly grabbed my gear just in time to catch the show before dimm

    I took this photo at Pickerington Ponds around 7:00 pm earlier this year. The sunset made the goldenrods appear as if they were glowing, and this redwing blackbird was swinging on the plant while eating its seeds. I used a Nikon D500 with a 200-500mm f/5.6 lens. The camera settings were 1/1000s, ISO 7200, f/5.6, 500mm. I shot this image in RAW format and processed in LrC.

    Title or Location: Hayden Run Falls Park
    I took a nature photography class to try and keep up on my photography skills and see if I could learn something new. We were taking pictures of a waterfall and I decided to stand back and see if I could get a more interesting shot. This older lady walked up to look more closely at the waterfall and I thought it would be a great shot. It turned out much better than expected!

    ?This past Father?s Day I went to a family farm cidery with my oldest daughter. The drinks were good, the company was great, but the best part was the farm?s commitment to keeping wild, native plants for pollinators. This little bee found a delicious clover and I got this macro shot.?

    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.
