Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 23 March
London Rd, Luton - 9am - 2 Hours
King Solomon Ekhaiyeme
Join this session for tips on how to use your camera settings to creatively capture nature in a visually interesting way. We will be looking at composition, focus, and colour.

Many professional offices and places of business have large prints gracing their wall space of things such as fields of flowers, a butterfly perched on a leaf, and a single dew drop on a rose petal. These beautiful images are all around us in nature. It just takes that special "eye" to not only see it but to capture it in a way that will turn that simple little piece of nature into a beautiful piece of art. We will learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make subjects pop.

    I wanted to get an image of this popular location within Wardown Park, but with good composition in mind. Those who have never visited will not realise that behind me was a children's area full to the brim, as noisy as it gets. So in contrast, this photo seemingly appears peaceful, not a soul in sight unless you count birdlife of course.

    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
