Next Meetup

You're invited to come to this street photography workshop / guided practice on street / documentary photography to learn identify and use the available lighting types / conditions, anticipate the decisive moment, and (quickly) change exposure accordingly during this Cultural Friday Event at Calle Ocho. “Cultural Friday” happens on the last Friday of every month in Little Havana (SW 8 St) at SW 15 Avenue from 7:00 to 9:00 pm -this is a showcase of the diverse arts and culture of South Florida, with live music, street dancing, domino and chess games, local arts and crafts displays along the sidewalk, art galleries, cigar roller stores, and much more. Calle Ocho is an excellent location for Street Photography and as the night settles, it becomes more interesting and challenging to capture the happening moments. Come and enjoy in a group setting all the events going on and be able to "create" quality images with... strong wall murals as background, interesting characters, artists / shops, musicians, and the traditional domino / chess players at the Maximo Gomez Domino Park (East of Tower Theater) along SW 8 Street at SW 15 Avenue. The workshop leader / instructor (Rafael) have taught photography classes at all levels (including digital editing software) for Broward County’s “My Community" School and has personally led field photography classes for years through Broward and Miami-Dade counties and guided the 2017 Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk group (and the 2018 event to come October 6th) in Calle Ocho. Rafael will lead the walk and be available all along for specific tips, technical consultation, and photography information to capture better images and make this a learning experience.

    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.
