Street Photography Meetup

Street Photography Meetup

Saturday 27 July
Kingston Upon Thames - 2:30pm - 2 Hours
Meher Soni
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.

Architectural photography can be a great way of exploring and documenting a city, whether it's your home or on holiday. Its about capturing not only the design and accurate representation of a building, but to have the shots be aesthetically pleasing to the viewer's eye. An architectural photographer makes pictures, not takes pictures.

In this session, we will be covering how to better understand Architecture photography and we'll be looking at ways to take some impressive shots and the camera settings to use.

    The instructor (Amman Ali) is a very talented photographer and great instruction skills. He dedicated a lot of extra time, i.e. outside the scheduled 2 hours to go through the concepts of manual photography. We were very blessed to have him our instructor and will highly recommend him.

    It was fabulous. First, there were only two of us and thankfully we were of similar experience so we jumped straight into a conversation with Amaan. It was like having Yoda to ourselves for 2.5 hours. In the event we took very few photos, but the opportunity to discuss a range of technical and artistic issues with him was invaluable. He was open, patient and extremely knowledgable. Whilst I did learn a couple of technical tricks, the majority of our time was spent discussion the balance of different techniques. I had a thoroughly engrossing time and can?t thank or recommend Amaan enough.

    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....

    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.
