This event is for the novice photographer. I know it is completely different than things usually done with this group, but I am hoping that is a good thing. The event is hosted by Usery Mountain Regional Park so if you have any specific questions about what will go on at the event I suggest you contact them (http://www.maricopa.gov/parks/usery/). If you have questions about how the Meetup event will work you can ask me. I can't give you directions though so please figure out how to get there through a mapping program or site. I would not rely on a GPS for directions. Carpooling can be arranged to save on the $6.00 fee so indicate if you are interested and what city you will be driving from to attend the event.
Digital Nature Photography for Beginners with Photographer
Usery Mountain Regional Park
Enhance your enjoyment of taking pictures while enjoying nature, whether it is out hiking, watching wildlife, or just watching the world pass by. We will work with you on getting your camera off of the "Auto" setting and will help you understand how your camera works to get better pictures. This presentation is best suited for owners of SLR cameras, but all cameras are welcome, we just ask that you know how to access your menus on your own. We will discuss the basics of ISO, aperature, shutter speed and how they are related, and how each can be used to improve your nature photography. We will also discuss how to read your histogram to make sure that you are getting the most our of your shot, and we will wrap up with a discussion on composition along with a Q & A period.
