Technical learning points will include accurate focusing and metering for skin tones.

This meet-up will explore portraiture using only available natural light and backgrounds. Because this type of photography is about shooting in a less controlled environment than a studio, we will explore not only how to recognize flattering light but also how to control the light to suit our purposes.

    Andrew was knowledgable and flexible, but we were not shooting at a great time of day or in a prime motion blur location. He offered clear instructions with hands-on assistance, and he demonstrated in addition to observing. Very good combo. Nice small group with interesting participants.

    Dearing the eclipse of 2017 my family and I sat in our backyard here in WA to watch the 93 totality with our eclipse glasses. With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I

    I took this image on Nov. 2, 2021 at 7 am on Nov. 2, 2001 at 7 am. As I was driving around the Cove I came upon this Buck as I came up over a rise. I had a feeling that he was about to cross the road. My hunch was right. He crossed one fence and eventually crossed the other one. I was ready for his movement. I took a series over shots. It was very exciting.Canon EF 100-400 f4.5 - 5.6L ISO 4,000 f8 1/200s

    Canon EOS 800DEF 75-300 f/4-5.675mm1/640F4.5ISO 200I was out practicing my technique. Had spent a little while chasing squirrels around the park. This took me to an area of the park I had not been in. The way these two tulips were complete opposites and yet seem to lean on each other drew my attention to them.
