What we're about

The Adventures In Photography Meetup Group would like to share its passion for photography with other like-minded photo enthusiasts. Our Meetup Group will be hosting photography related events such as field trips, workshop programs, speaker events, and other activities intended to help photographers of all levels come together and enjoy the many rewards that photography has to offer. Photographers of all skill levels who are looking to improve their skills, find new creative outlets for shooting, or just to connect with a friendly group of people to socialize and talk shop are all welcome to join.

Our intention is to concentrate on three areas of photographic interest. These areas are:

1. Field Trips: While we do intend to offer field trips to the usual destinations that offer a rich variety of photo ops, we have no intention of stopping there. We will seek out unusual and extraordinary destinations that will offer a wide variety of photographic adventures. We intend to offer same day field trips, weekend field trips and somewhat longer photo adventures designed to accommodate wide and varied interests.

2. Workshops: We intend to periodically offer a variety of presentations by an assorted cast of experts, in the field of photography, who have something unique and unusual to share with us. Generally, these presentations will be scheduled on a weekday night and will run for about two hours.

3. Extended Workshops: We also intend to periodically offer half day and/or full day workshops presented by an assorted cast of experts, in the field of photography, who have something unique and unusual to share with us. In general, these workshops will present subject matter that cannot be presented easily in an abbreviated two hour session. In many instances these workshop will utilize well known speakers sponsored by well known companies in the photographic community.

We are limited only by our imagination and your willingness to support our efforts.

Everything connected with this Meetup Group will be conceived, planned and managed by photographers for photographers.

Fine Art Architecture Photography by Sharon Tenenbaum

Needs a location

$20.00

Sharon will present the artistic side of architectural photography. Some guidelines to work with, other works that inspire her and what makes a great fine art architectural image. She will also talk about seeing lines' and will show her thought process from conception to completion in creating her Sundial Bridge series.

Sharon Tenenbaum defines herself as an artist working within the medium of photography. The artistic process is paramount in every creation she completes. She always aspires to ‘show reality in a different way’, creating images rather than capturing them. Sharon is constantly challenging herself: whether experimenting with bicycle parts to create composite cityscapes or painting selective overlays onto her images. She is committed to the artistic process of growth and change in the continuous pursuit for novelty.

P.S.: 1. Zoom link will be in the meetup (so please pay attention to it)
2. This will be recorded, and the link will be sent out 2-3 days after the meetup is held.

9 Day/8 Nights of incredible photo ops on a trip planned by photographers for photographers.

Travel with Adventures in Photography (AIP) when we return to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons for peak Aspen fall color.

This is a trifecta of photo ops: The beautiful rolling landscapes and hot springs of Yellowstone, the iconic mountains and fall color of the Grand Tetons and plenty of wildlife along the way. We will split our time between the two National Parks, visiting all of the iconic locations on our 9-day extravaganza. Locations include Mammoth Hot Springs, The Grand Prismatic, Lower Geyser Basin, Artist Point, Yellowstone Lake, the Lamar Valley, and all the locations in the Tetons that Ansel Adams made famous like Oxbow Bend and the Mormon barns.

Itinerary:

  • September 18: We will start the day with a sunrise shoot, have breakfast, check out and drive up to West Yellowstone. We will use West Yellowstone as our base for our time in this park. During our drive, we'll stop at multiple spots along the way to shoot wildlife. A sunset shoot at one of the thermal areas followed by dinner will finish out the day.

September 19-22: We will generally shoot sunrises and sunsets at the iconic locations and spend the middle of the day shooting wildlife. This schedule will be flexible to account for changing weather and the interests of participants.

September 22-25: The group will drive back to the Grand Tetons after breakfast on the 22nd, shooting wildlife along the way. Our remaining time in the Tetons will focus on the beautiful mountains and surrounding landscapes. For those interested, we will also plan one- or two-night shoots.
