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.

    PHOTOGRAPHERS
    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.

    ?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.
