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.

Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations in Birmingham.

  • New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

  • Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

  • What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

    The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

    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.

    Title or Location: Hanging by a Thread
    I always found that simple weeds like dandelions are intricate and interesting, and wanted to capture that feeling of just barely hanging on before being blown away.

    Title or Location: Maylene, AL
    This little Leaf Hopper was hanging out on a canna leaf in my back yard and graciously agreed to pose for several images. Taken with a Nikon D300 and Nikon 24-85mm f/2.8-4 (AF-D NIKKOR) 1/250th @ f/22. The light source is off camera and triggered Nikon SB80 DX.My original title for this image was "1958 BMW Isetta Prototype", but I decided to change that to "Say Hello To My Little Friend" for reasons I cannot explain.

    Title or Location: Logan Martin Dam Park
    This was one of my first outings with a mirrorless camera, when I saw this beautiful pittie with eyes that pierced the soul. I asked the owners permission, and they happily agreed as long as they got a copy of the picture. Here is the end result!

    Title or Location: Near Loen, Norway
    This photo was taken after cruising into Olden and taking the Loen Skylift, at the top of which are many trails. We took one away from the crowd and came across this little stream which lined up nicely with what I expect is it's destination. Taken on a Sony RX10IV

    Title or Location: San Juan Islands-Washington State
    Photo was taken in August of 2023 near the San Juan Islands north west of Seattle. We were following a family of Orca who we believe were teaching their young how to hunt. This photo was of an orca in pursuit of a porpoise. I actually have two other photos of the live pursuit with the orca tracking down and catching the porpoise. I would be happy to provide those as well if you?d like.
