Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 01 June
Tickhill Road - 1pm - 2 Hours
Joshua Ashton
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.

    Really enjoyed this session with Shams. He made lots of suggestions for creative street photography and I felt he quickly picked up on the differing interest areas of our group and supported us in fine tuning our techniques to realise our inspirations. We also learned from each other and enjoyed looking to see what each other were capturing with our differing lenses and cameras. A really relaxing and enjoyable session!

    Joshua Ashton
    Throughout my work, I desire to take pictures that help people become more appreciative of the world. I use a range of subjects, including flowers, nature, wildlife, and landscapes. However, my favourite is witnessing the unique relationships between animals that I capture in my images. I also find macro photography fascinating, as it allows me to use my artistic flair to discover hidden textures that are normally unseen by the naked eye.

    Joshua Ashton is available for private bookings

    Available most days from 12pm until 6pm throughout the week with advanced notice. I can offer private tutoring for a range of genres including:
    - Wildlife
    - Nature
    - Landscape
    - Street
    - City
    - Macro
    - Monochrome

I was impressed by the old and new, classic and modern, clean and gritty lines intertwined into one beautiful city fabric. When I saw the building, now known to me as Q-Park Charles Street, I thought this must be an art gallery of some sort, only later to be hit by a fact this is only a multi-storey car park!

It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.
