What we're about

This group is for all South Florida digital photographers who want to go out and take photos of interesting public places and do not want to do it alone… in addition an expert photography coach will lead and individually coach participants in the art / science of photography.

There will be a meeting every 2-3 weeks at one of the many interesting South Florida photo-op locations to expand the participants’ digital photography knowledge, and capture great images. These workshops will stress practical (on the spot “photo think”) to get the best digital image exposure as baseline and from there test variations of the mechanical (camera) and artistic (composition) aspects of Photography to create a more interesting and appealing digital image.

The coach for these photography workshops is a graduate from the New York Institute of Photography and has been involved in photography for over 30 years, as a hobby and for business. He retired from Broward County as a high school teacher and taught at Broward Community School Digital Photography / Post Production classes, and field photography workshops for over 10 years.

Paid parking is available around the surrounding area. For a little history, Dinner Key is a marina complex in the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami that was originally an island and connected to the mainland in 1914 by filling in the intervening space. It’s believed that name came from the fact that the island was a convenient place to stop to eat while traveling by boat between the Miami River and Snapper Creek to the South. Formerly, Dinner Key was a location for the Coast Guard Air Station and Pan American Airways “seaport” (whose terminal building is now Miami City Hall), which moved its operations from Key West in 1929 to maintain service to Cuba. The leader / Organizer (Rafael) has taught photography for many years and has vast experience assisting participants understand and learn the specific requirements of the situations encountered.
