Street Photography Meetup

Street Photography Meetup

Saturday the 22nd of January
Yagan Square - 9:00am - 2 hours
The Britannica defines street photography as; a genre of photography that records everyday life in a public place. The very publicness of the setting enables the photographer to take candid pictures of strangers, often without their knowledge. Street photographers do not necessarily have a social purpose in mind, but they prefer to isolate and capture moments which might otherwise go unnoticed. In this class we will walk the streets taking photos of people in public places, I will show you how there are a couple of ways of doing this. There will be exercises that each participant will be able to perform.

Mastering Backlighting

Mastering Backlighting

Saturday the 26th of February
John Oldham Park, Perth - 3.30 pm - 2 hours
Photography is all about the light and how you use it. Backlighting can be used effectively for many genres such as portraiture but today we will be investigating how it can enhance nature, with shots of plants and with luck, birds. It brings to life textures of flowers, leaves and feathers. We can also use strong backlighting to give us bokeh creating a soft, emotive background.

Jon was great! He was super approachable and his methods were effective. It helped me think about colour in black and white more than I have in the past, which is what I wanted.
