Nature Walk and Photography Meetup

Saturday 17 August
Central Rim - 6:30pm - 2 Hours
Dragomir Vukovic
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.

This session, will have a wide variation of subjects and creative lighting. The idea is that you can see how I shoot a scene, and then you place your camera in position and shoot the same way. This is a very effective way to study and learn new techniques.

Street Photography

Saturday 28 September
Downtown Boise - 10am - 2 Hours
Dragomir Vukovic
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.

    I loved it. The instruction was a much needed refresh, and the instructor was insightful, professional and very knowledgeable. Many questions were asked and many answers were given and noted. The only silly question is the one not asked. He stated that many times to us.

    This barn was a random find while driving on backroads outside of Heber City, Utah in late September 2023. I still have no idea what the name of this barn is, but I got plenty of shots of it, all handheld. Camera: Nikon D850, Tamron Lens 28-300mm at 46mm Exp: 1/160 sec, f11, ISO 125. Polarizer was used. All edits were done in Lightroom.

    Title or Location: Utah
    This photo was taken in late September 2016 in the evening. I was attending my first DSLR workshop put on by Willie Holdman of Park City, UT. Interestingly, I don't think I could find this spot again If I had to. I was trying to keep up with Willie (like following a jack rabbit) and got lost and luckily I wondered into this meadow facing the Timpanogos and shot until dark. This became the first picture I ever put on my wall as a new photographer. Camera: Nikon D5200, Lens: Nikon 18-55mm at

    Title or Location: Boise Greenbelt
    This amateur photo hobbyist set out on the Boise Greenbelt with a sense of excitement, energized and fueled by a new camera and zoom lens, my brain overflowing with tips and tricks from all over the internet in search of something interesting to put it all to good use. A kind woman asks what I'm taking pictures of, I politely tell her "birds," and she smiles at my complete lack of ornithological knowledge. Her attention quickly moves away from me to the high-pitched peeping of a Belted Kingfis

    Title or Location: Charlies Hut, Carneys Creek
    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. 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

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.

    Title or Location: Cremorne Point
    Cremorne Point is always a favourite choice to capture the southerly sunsets with the Sydney Opera House and the city skyline in the frame. This isn't a long exposure shot but a motion blur added to the water in post production.

    Title or Location: Stub Stewart State Park Hilltop area
    This was the day of famous Northern Lights visible in most of the North America. Stubs Stewart is the most ideal dark area for star gazing so I reached there around 11pm. As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to

    Title or Location: Curly dick Rd ,Meadow flat
    It's a famous road for Golden Poplars, but I wanted to capture the Milky way passing over trees that have lost their leaves. it was early evening, but the Milky Way was already high up, so I quickly took some photos and returned to Sydney.
