Street Photography

Saturday 31 August
Washington Square - 3:30pm - 2 Hours
Manhattan Photography Group
Zach NeSmith
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

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 12 October
Staten Island Ferry Terminal - 3:30pm - 2 Hours
Manhattan Photography Group
Zach NeSmith
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.

    Title or Location: Brooklyn, Coney Island
    I live in Brooklyn, 5 minutes from the ocean. I love the summer beach season, because every Friday there are fireworks on the Coney Island beach. Every Friday from the end of May to the beginning of September at 9:45 PM. I've lived here for 3 years, but whenever I can I go out to take pictures. I tried to take photos from many sides, but I love this best when you can see the amusement park, The lights of the amusement park and the beauty of the fireworks inspired this photo of mine.The image

    This photo was taken after cruising into Olden and taking the Loen Skylift, at the top of which are many trails. We took one away from the crowd and came across this little stream which lined up nicely with what I expect is it's destination. Taken on a Sony RX10IV

    Title or Location: San Juan Islands-Washington State
    Photo was taken in August of 2023 near the San Juan Islands north west of Seattle. We were following a family of Orca who we believe were teaching their young how to hunt. This photo was of an orca in pursuit of a porpoise. I actually have two other photos of the live pursuit with the orca tracking down and catching the porpoise. I would be happy to provide those as well if you?d like.
