Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 30 March
Shaw Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63110 - 10am - 2 Hours
Jeremy Ryne Danielson
Join this session for tips on how to use your camera settings to creatively capture nature in a visually interesting way. We will be looking at composition, focus, and colour.

Many professional offices and places of business have large prints gracing their wall space of things such as fields of flowers, a butterfly perched on a leaf, and a single dew drop on a rose petal. These beautiful images are all around us in nature. It just takes that special "eye" to not only see it but to capture it in a way that will turn that simple little piece of nature into a beautiful piece of art. We will learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make subjects pop.

    I really enjoyed the event, at which I was the only attendee. Ryne was friendly and helpful and lent me his gloves as I had left home without mine. I learned a lot about being mindful in my photography and look forward to attending more of Ryne's events.

    A few weeks ago, on a cold, Sunday morning while it was still dark, I ventured out of the house with my camera and tripod wondering if getting up so early was worth the effort. Then, this happened! As if out of nowhere, dawn was breaking with rich and rare tones of purple, red, & orange. I knew I only had a few minutes to capture it so I quickly plopped myself in the middle of Market Street (one of the busiest streets in St Louis (Missouri)) looking eastward toward the Arch.

    My wife and I are members of Missouri Botanical Gardens. We were there to see the Chihuly Glass Art and this hawk flew right in front of me and landed in the tree. Sometime as a photographer you just get lucky.

    Photo taken on a Nikon Z8 with a Tamron 150-500mm F5-6.7 @ 500mm 1/1000 F6.7. Lightly denoised and edited in LR. I just picked up this lens from my local camera shop and couldn't wait to try it out. So I took it to my local zoo the next day. As my daughter (she is starting her photography journey with my old RebelT6i) and I were walking by we happened to see this guy posing for us so I grabbed this shot before he moved.

    I was driving by the boathouse in Forest Park & this tree caught my eye. I wasn?t sure if it was going to be worth walking through the mud for, but once I got there I forgot about the mud. It was a beautiful scene tucked away off of the main road.

    This playful Eastern Bluebird was making some unfamiliar noises, I usually see a lot of robins, crows, and mockingbirds. I was able to adjust my exposure to 1 to account for the shadows and backlighting. This picture makes me feel a certain kind of joy knowing it?s the state bird of Missouri.

    Working on trying new things! Plucked this Puff out of my front yard flower bed. Used a small compact mirror to create the shot using natural daylight thorough the window. The black and white spoke drama with such a simple subject. Taken with Canon rebel t7 and efs 18-55mm f/3.5-6.6Settings 1/60 f5.6

    Title or Location: My back garden in Hemel Hempstead
    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula

    This is part of a huge street art display, a real gem in Leeds. I loved the different displays of hands walking, creates a real sense of movement and intrigue. Photo was taken around 11am. The light you see shining on the hand is from a wall light. Camera setting - F4.2, 1/400 shutter and ISO 200.
