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.

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. Technical learning points will including metering for skin tones, white balance, as well as intentional focusing strategies. On the less technical side we will have a dialogue about how to make a portrait have style and personality. Finally, we will incorporate posing and setting your subject at ease.

    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.

For a fee you can walk the entire perimeter and this shot was taken just before sunset from one of the highest sections looking out over the historic skyline and the sea.A wonderful way to end a near-perfect trip

    Title or Location: Key West, Florida
    I took this photo of the Blue Morphos at the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory first thing in the morning. As with other butterflies, Blue Morphos are most active then. They were moving so fast that I patiently waited for them to come into focus and fired off a round of shots. With a little luck, I was able to captured all three in different flight poses.

    After years of paddleboarding in Hilton Head Island's Shelter Cove area, this is the first time that my daughter and I paddleboarded in the ocean. Wanting to make it memorable, we launched at sunrise. So, the image is memorable to my family in many ways. Thank you for looking.

    I was focusing on a Marsh Harrier and when I put the camera down I saw this Robin perched on the edge of my table. He just stared at me and patiently waited as I reset the camera. I still had my zoom on and almost fell off my seat leaning to get focus. The images of this bird are among my favourite sets....

    Castle Hill is an amazing location for Landscape and Astro photography. Used a Nikon Z6ii & 20mm 1.8 lens along with a lens warmer plus the Photo Pills planner.The moon was brighter than expected - 5 days old but it actually did us a big favour in lighting up the rocks with the Milky Way core above it. This is the jpeg with no edits.

    I was on a photo workshop in the park with about 8 others. We set up for the night in the Cathedral Overlook campground. At about 3:30 am, the leader got us up and we drove, then hiked to this spot. We took astro shots, then waited in place for a couple hours until early light on the cathedral formations. This is was a merging of the two exposures that created this image.
