Macro photography is a unique form of photography that involves photographing small objects to make them look life-sized or more significant in the photo. The usual subjects include flowers and small insects, which we don't normally get to see up close with the naked eye.

The class will start when the insects are more active. So be ready to explore and capture breathe taking macro images.

Street Photography Meetup - Nash Square Park - 11am - 2 hours
Street photography has to be real, unposed moments. Which showcases both the lives and the emotions of subjects at a given moment. Photographing a person, place or thing can also be Street Photography. If your image can make the viewer pause and ask questions, then it is often considered to be successful street photography. The motive should be to tell a story through your work and creativity document what is happening right in front of you.

Our Goal for this Meetup is to introduce New photographers, whether your hobbyist or just getting started into the Amazingly Beautiful world of Photography.

We will focus on how to properly frame a subject while applying a few techniques to help everyone comprehend why and how it works. This is your time to learn and gain a proper understanding of “Composition”.

It was nice to meet local photographers. I would have liked some staged shots to review the what, why, and how of the photo. We could then compare photos with the group.
