Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 27 April
Downtown Kitchener - 3pm - 2 Hours
Akshay Kumar Ajikumar
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.

    This shot was part of an impromptu shoot in an unexpected snowstorm. The idea behind the shot is a juxtaposition of different themes and imagery: safety, rebellion, thinking for yourself, power, and trying to fit in and find comfort in places where you are not accepted.

    As Valentine's Day approached I knew that I wanted to create an image that was both soft and sensual. I find that red roses can be a little harsh in presentation so went hunting for a flower that would help me create an image that was pleasing to the eye to be able to share with my friends and family. Blush roses are my favourite and I was fortunate to find some that I coaxed to open in time for February 14th.

    Dragonflies were busy darting through the air, feeding on mosquitoes flying around in early June ,but they were not landing anywhere, until this dragonfly landed on a small retaining wall at the water's edge. I decided to go into the lake, "behind" it and capture a photo of it, looking back on a grassy area behind, to create a soft background. I kept my distance using a Nikon 200-500mm zoom lens at 460mm. Shot with a Nikon D5500 at 1/3200sec, F5.6

    Thank you for the consideration.Background to this photo.A couple of years ago on our local community page I saw a photo of a tree covered in bioluminescent fungi saying it was found in Gerroa, 5 minutes drive from me. Wow how amazing, so I set out to find it and photography it too. Since then I developed an interest in fungi and look forward to Autumn when there is plenty about. To enable me to photograph ghost fungi ( omphalotus nidiformis) I go for a bush walk during the day mostly

    Mesa Arch is about a 25 minute walk from the parking lot in Canyonland National Park. At night, it's the darkest sky I've ever seen. This photo represents 20 stacked images of the Milky Way combined together in Starry Landscape Stacker. The result required the scene to be slightly brightened in post to bring out the foreground.
