Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 20 July
Warrington Bank Quays train station. - 10am - 2 Hours
Esther Adeola Seriki
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.

    It was good to meet up with other warrington photographers and I really loved the sharing of experiences and social media. Esther was really great...put up with my lack of technical skills with patience. Good that it all happened in the town centre rather than Liverpool or Manchester. I look forward to more workshops in Warrington. G.S. .

    I was so lucky that no-one else turned up, so had Esther all to myself. Great lady. Very knowledgeable and very patient. Explained things in ways to help me understand. Took time to work through my camera and help figure it out. Took time to look through my shots and make suggestions, but also praise where good decisions were made. Had a great time and feel much more confident to get out there and make more use of my camera.

    I really enjoyed the nature class. It was a small group so we had a nice walk around the park looking for interesting things to capture. Robert was really friendly & informative & he taught us about camera settings & composition. It was a fun & relaxed way to learn & I would recommend it to anyone. I took my phone as I don't own a camera & I still got a lot out of the class & learnt how to use some of the pro/manual settings.

    First of all, a huge thank you for choosing my picture. There are some great images being posted on here. It was a very miserable day to be honest lol, I went with the family for a walk a hopefully capture something nice in the area. I decided to go off on my own and found a walk route off the bridge that you can see in the image. Scrambled down some slippery rocks and set up beside the bridge. The original Roman bridge is still there too and in the background is not Llyn Idwal but a hill which

    The photo was taken one early morning in January. I love going for walks in the morning especially when the sun is rising and loving take photographs of the skyline when the World is waking up. I added a filter to the picture as i wanted to bring out the blue skyline and also its contrast to the dark tree. It's my favourite picture I've taken this year and so happy I've been asked to put it foward. Thank you, ot proper made my day.

The scouting was successful as it did look like I'd be able to have both the lake and the Milky Way in the shot, so I made a plan to head up there again the next day (July 3rd) and capture what I planned. Prior to heading back up to RMNP, while looking at the map of the area, I noticed another possible location where Fall River would be in the foreground and in my mind, having
