Downtown Nashville - 4pm - 2 Hours
Nashville Photography Society
Crystal Molina
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you.

We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

Architecture Photography: Interiors

Saturday 07 September
Downtown Nashville - 1pm - 2 Hours
Nashville Photography Society
Crystal Molina
Architectural photography can be a great way of exploring and documenting a city, whether it's your home or on holiday. Its about capturing not only the design and accurate representation of a building, but to have the shots be aesthetically pleasing to the viewer's eye. An architectural photographer makes pictures, not takes pictures.

In this session, we will be covering a specific part of architecture photography: building interiors.

    Johnnie did a great job guiding us through the park, finding good subject matter, and brought reflectors and lighting so we could try different shots of the same subject and learn about the effects. Great learning event, thank you!

    Nothing says Summer quite like a Sunflower and when I was grocery shopping and ran across this one I knew I could get a wonderful shot with it. I ended up taking several at different times of the day seeing how the changing light worked with my composition and finally settled on this one shot around noon.Shot with:Nikon D600Tamron 70-200mm @200mmISO 1001/320

    I took this a few years ago while on a trip with friends to Morro Bay, CA. We stayed to watch the sunset and I must have taken about 800 photos. I landed on this one over the others, as i felt the singular bird as opposed to the several in the other shots had Morro impact during this particular scene. I am very proud of it. Thank you for sharing.

    Taken March 12 2019 at 5:12 PM. Canon EOS f/8 1/400 ISO 800. Focal length 500mm. This image was cropped in post editing and adjusted for lighting. Became an avid bird photographer in 2013 after some happenings in my life led me to needing something different to focus on. Always was told if you ever see a purple finch you will know it and they were right. This is probably one of my first encounters with a purple finch. I am often asked why there are no people in my images. I tell them like Ansel

    I shot this on tripod, 3 shot bracket, with my D600 and a Tokina 11-20mm @17mm. I used Photo Pills to nail down exactly where the sun would set and setup hoping for some magic. Nature can be a cruel mistress to landscape photographers but that night she was kind and blessed me with several great shots. I did, however, have to freeze to get them. Totally worth it though

    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!
