Industrial Landscape Photography Meetup

Industrial Landscape Photography Meetup

Saturday 27 July
Townsville City - 8am - 2 Hours
Brian Dean
We will be starting with an overview of landscape photography technique, how to decide what to take a picture of and how to compose shots, we will then move into settings and more technical challenges to get an idea of when the camera behaves best for landscapes.

You can use buildings and other man-made structures compositionally in the same way other landscape photographers use trees and rolling hills. Wind farms, harbours, cement works, power stations, quarries, pylons and building sites are just a few of the industrial landscapes you can photograph. The Liverpool docks are the perfect setting for this kind of photography meetup.

Rule of Thirds Photography Meetup

Rule of Thirds Photography Meetup

Saturday 07 September
Pimlico - 8am - 2 Hours
Brian Dean
One of the most basic tenets of composition is the Rule of Thirds. Although most people are familiar with this technique it is often forgotten in the haste to take a photo. However you ignore it at your peril as it can make an average snap into something which is has tension and dynamism.

In this meetup we will practice using the Rule of Thirds in a setting full of photographic possibility.

    We spent our last night on our NZ South Island road trip at Pippa's Lookout where I caught the Southern Cross over Lake Lyndon. It was around 11:30 pm when the Moon was setting behind the mountain but still luminating the foreground for me. I like the refection's on the lake and the serenity of the scene.

To enable me to photograph ghost fungi ( omphalotus nidiformis) I go for a bush walk during the day mostly

    Mesa Arch is about a 25 minute walk from the parking lot in Canyonland National Park. At night, it's the darkest sky I've ever seen. This photo represents 20 stacked images of the Milky Way combined together in Starry Landscape Stacker. The result required the scene to be slightly brightened in post to bring out the foreground.
