Point Pleasant Beach - 9pm - 2 Hours

Many people don't think about nighttime being a good time to do photography since there's a lack of light. However, armed with knowledge about your camera's settings and the properties of light, nighttime photography can be a lot of fun.

In this meetup, you'll learn about the best camera settings for nighttime photography. We'll also explore the kinds of light available to us and how to use that light to make some awesome photos. As always, there are exercises that will help you put your new knowledge to work.

Composition in the Park

Composition in the Park

Saturday 14 September
Allaire Village - 5pm - 2 Hours
Bruce Mironov
Come and join us as we explore composition in photography.

Composition is one of the most critical element in photography. Composition is how a photographer arranges the visual elements within their image, frame. I promise you that if you search for information on composition you will find plenty You will find formal rules, opinion, some of which you can trace back to historical art movements and painters.

Even in the digital world, composition remains the key to creating strong images. Composition is what guides our eye through an image and gives importance to the subject. It creates the story for the viewer and how we as photographers convey that message.

This meetup will explore composition using our frame and tools available to us as the photographer.

    As an expert film photographer I learned that digital is very different but the same. Also that many of the selections on my camera are basically useless for my needs. Just set the dial on "M" and go from there just like film.

    The beginner class ended up being a one on one experience. Mai was great and helped refresh my memory about shutter speed and aperture settings. She taught me things about my camera that I didn?t know. I will never shoot on auto again. I also enjoyed visiting Cheesequake park as I had never been there.

    This photo was taken a few years ago at Central Park, NYC. Two people, complete strangers to me were sitting on the rocks enjoying the view and each other. I had already taken a few photos of them looking at the view and they turned to each other for a kiss and I was able to capture that moment.

    The picture was taken on the season opening of Allaire Village. It was late in the day and most of the events for the day had already taken place and the village was fairly empty. The two bunnys look as if they are taken a well deserved rest in the afternoon sun after entertaining children all day. I hope if any one decides to purchase one they purchase both, they seem to belong together. Camera Olympus OM 5 with 12 -45 pro lens. Not sure about question regarding posting, I posted as a re

    This photo of branches against a very gray sky was taken during a Beginners class on April 13. I tried to blacken out the branches as much as possible to get the silhouette effect. It was shot at 1/320th f16 ISO 400 - Shutter priority .

    ?This past Father?s Day I went to a family farm cidery with my oldest daughter. The drinks were good, the company was great, but the best part was the farm?s commitment to keeping wild, native plants for pollinators. This little bee found a delicious clover and I got this macro shot.?

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
