Street Photography

Saturday 14 October
Broad Street - 9:30am - 2 Hours
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.

    Awesome job!
    Steve says...very informative and well delivered. I learned a lot about my camera and taking manual photos. It was hard to remain standing for the entire class time, though.
    Steve and Kay Timmerman
    It helped me understand my camera a little better and I learned some new things also. It was really helpful :)

    Brett was AWESOME! Had specific suggestions as well as general observations and recommendations. A great workshop/meetup leader.
    Great instructor!

    This event was great I learned so much about how to use the manual settings, Brent explained everything so well and answered any questions I had. He made you feel comfortable and made you want to get involved. Once again, a great event. Thank you.

    Brent was a fantastic instructor. He is knowledgable and passionate about photohraphy. He answered all questions without ever making us feel like we asked a dumb question. The River Walk was beautiful, I had never been there before. I am now not afraid of manual mode.

    I woke up early to get some wildlife photography shots at Brick Pond Park. I was beginning to get bored with waiting for an anhinga to catch it's meal and then I looked over and saw two squirrels collecting their breakfast. Then I got this great shot of the squirrel looking directly at me.

    Title or Location: Graniteville, SC
    I was driving through the old mill town of Graniteville where textiles were once king and most everyone worked in the nearby mills. The Graniteville Canal (pictured) runs through Graniteville. I just really liked the Autumnal-like colors from the landscape and how those colors reflected in the water. It was too good to pass up for this photographer! ?

    Title or Location: Idalia Blue Moon
    I looked forward to photographing the blue moon on the evening of August 30th but Hurricane Idalia put a damper on those plans. After the rain has subsided I went outside at @12:45AM and noticed breaks in the clouds from the remnants of the storm. Lo and behold the full moon peeked in and out of the clouds allowing me to capture this photo.I took the photo with a Nikon Z6 using a Nikon 70-300mm 4.5-6.3 lens. My camera settings were aperture 6.3, ISO 100, and a shutter speed of 1/160". The phot

    Title or Location: Wildwood, Florida - just South of Ocala
    I live near the water. As I worked in my garden, this eagle landed near the water's edge. It stayed long enough for me to grab my good old Cannon Rebel and I was able to capture several images with my 200mm lens. The bird seemed to have no fear of me. I moved slowly peacefully towards it and I ended up about 25' away. I did not want to scare it, so I only captured a few images. When I had finished, the bird remained here for quite some time. It was an amazing experience. I did crop the image to
