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.

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.

    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!

    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

    I setup under the bridge Saturday about an hour before sunset hoping I would get some good colors as the sun dipped down. It was about 30 degrees out and rather cold down by the water but I was determined to get a good shot if nature cooperated. As the last bits of light faded away it happened the sky started to transition from reds to the deeper purples of evening. The image is a 3 shot bracket on tripod merged into a HDR.

    Wasn't terribly hopeful about finding anything good that morning, went out a bit later than I should've. But, I stumbled upon this small group of deer looking for food each other. Tried to get just a bit closer but I got greedy and scared them off after just a few shots unfortunately.Camera - Canon R6 Mark IILens - Canon 800mm f5.6

    For 2 weeks every winter Sydney is lit up with amazing colours and beams of light over the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and various buildings throughout the city. I captured this photo of the Opera House from across the water at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.
