Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 03 August
Terrace Dr, Pelham - 10am - 2 Hours
Annie Nguyen
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.

    Annie Nguyen
    Annie was born & raised in AL. She first developed her love for photography as a kid early on through her father who would often shoot film. She was completely enamored with this art growing up using her cousin's video camera to capture stills, learning Android/IPhone photography, & anything she could get her hands on to practice more including her dad's digital camera in middle school until she got her first (film) camera in high school. She enjoyed learning how to shoot with film as it was completely different from shooting with digital! It was also during this time when her father instilled more basic principles, such as composition & lighting, to help in her learning/practice as she quickly formed her own style having shoots with friends in high school. Even now, her love still continues for this art as capturing special moments is both a lifelong passion & joy of hers! She graduated from U.A.B. with a bachelor's in public health as helping others is another strong pursuit of hers.

    Annie Nguyen is available for private bookings

    Available most Sundays from 8AM until 12PM.
    Private tutoring, weddings, portraits, & events.

    My family and I were taking a walk one late afternoon in March when I saw this beautiful and unique piece of driftwood that had washed up on the beach. As I started walking closer to it, I envisioned the sunset peeking through the middle. I wanted to get close enough to see the details of the driftwood, get the sunset coming through, while still ensuring I got the beautiful clouds and seascape. Once I found the exact angle and composition I wanted, I snapped the picture! It turned out exactl

    I was lucky enough to happen to be in the right spot at the right time to capture this image! It was a gloomy day, but sometimes those days bring out the most amazing aspects and details of nature. It is rare to get the right amount of light, combined with the fog and the beauty of its surroundings! It is definitely one of my favorite photos!

    I took this photo after work on the night of Friday 5-10-24. I was seeing posts about people seeing the northern lights as low as Oklahoma. I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

    Photo of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) taken on New Brighton promenade on Friday 10th May 2024 (around 11:53pm) - the night when the Northern Lights was visible from much of the UK.I'd be thinking of heading out to try and catch a photo of the Northern Lights for the past few weeks as had seen notifications on various apps and on Facebook that there might be a chance of seeing them. I finally decided to go out and see if I could see them on that evening, and I was extremely lucky tha

    I started taking my son to RIAT in 2008 when he was just six years old. He had to follow Dad, and would be seen armed with my old Canon 350D. I was using a Canon 40D and Canon 100-400mm L series lens at the time.RIAT is wholly dependant upon the right weather for good photography. Cloud too low - display routines are changed. Too much cloud and rain - the background is too grey. The weather can also be too good, leaving bright blue, but boring backgrounds. Thankfully July 18, 2009 provided goo

    Knowing there was a high chance of seeing the aurora borealis, I left work early on Friday, May 10. First, I stopped at my local camera store to buy a new lens I had been dreaming about (14-24mm f2.8). Then I drove to Minnesota to meet up with another photographer. By 1am, we found ourselves by this lake. I often found myself admiring the aurora and not taking pictures. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced.
