Sunset Photography Meetup

Saturday 06 July
North end of Boise - 9pm - 2 Hours
Dragomir Vukovic
Learn how to use the proper settings to capture a beautiful sunset.

Nature Walk and Photography Meetup

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.

I Shoot it, You Shoot it

Saturday 07 September
Downtown Boise - 10am - 2 Hours
Dragomir Vukovic
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

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 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

    ?This past Father?s Day I went to a family farm cidery with my oldest daughter. The drinks were good, the company was great, but the best part was the farm?s commitment to keeping wild, native plants for pollinators. This little bee found a delicious clover and I got this macro shot.?

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
