Architecture Photography

Saturday 27 July
Tintern - 10am - 3 Hours
Newport Photography Group
Rachel Southard
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 how to better understand Architecture photography and we'll be looking at ways to take some impressive shots and the camera settings to use.

The ticket price does not include the 8.70 entry fee to the venue.

Street Photography

Saturday 17 August
Kingsway Centre - 2pm - 2 Hours
Newport Photography Group
Rachel Southard
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.

    Title or Location: Rhossili, Wales.
    I'm a missionary for my church so I've been asked to come live in the United Kingdom for two years to do my proselyting and as I've been here I have fallen in love with the scenery and constant expansion of beauty from the world. This picture I took with the Fjords has been my all time favorite so far. It captures the magnificent beauty and also characteristics of the animals with essence and natural beauty.

    Title or Location: Three Cliffs Bay, The Gower, Swansea
    This one took a bit of planning to catch the Milky Way in the place I wanted, the Weather, Moon, and Milky Way core all had to be right and as you might guess it took a few seasons for it to come together, every time it was a walk in the dark over the sand dunes from Pennard to get to the right spot on the cliff edge, I'm a little picky when it comes to star trails and although there are certain formulas for shutter speed to "visibly" limit star trails I'd rather have none, so I dragged my Star

    Title or Location: VIVID Sydney - Sydney Harbour
    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.
