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.

Street Art Photography

Saturday 26 October
Downtown Asbury Park - 9am - 2 Hours

Street art is a unique and colorful art form and can be found in all kinds of nooks and crannies in cities all over the world. Capturing art in the streets in photographs can be tricky because these urban art pieces are in public spaces, that are busy and usually filled with a decent amount of traffic. Sometimes you include the people and sometimes, you don't.

    The location was perfect. Bruce, my instructor, was patient as he reviewed lighting and composition. I learned a lot. Bruce seemed to understand my strengths and weaknesses. I look forward to attending another outing in the future.

    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.

    Title or Location: Central Park, NYC
    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 .

    Title or Location: Montforts Beach
    It was nothing but grey skies and rain for days on end, but I decided that you don't always need epic sunsets for great photos. The dull weather also allowed me to get a 20 second exposure with an ND1000 filter giving that classic wispy water look. A wide angle lens allowed me to get nice and close and emphasize the subject, being that close also meant there was some close calls with the occasional freak wave coming up to where I had my tripod and me running back up the beach to escape them

    There?s sunset and there?s sunset like this! As if Mother Nature decided that the colours were not enough and returned with these extraordinary after colours!I was a bit wavering that afternoon looking at those thick clouds building up but then a gap in those clouds made for a colour burst producing a sunset that has by far been one of the best in this year I have seen!
