Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Sunday 10 March
Wildwood Park - 1pm - 2 Hours
Robert Bonsall
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.

    PHOTOGRAPHERS
    Robert Bonsall
    At 14, Robert took a school trip to Germany where he photographed his adventures and thus began his love of photography. Later inhis teens, his father gave him his Voigtlander 35mm camera and here is wherehe explored how lighting and composition affected the look and feel of his photography. For the majority of his professional career, he was involved in the photography world from selling camera equipment, teaching photography classes, developing his work, and yes capturing memories for families, wedding couples, and children with his unique perspective on using light and composition to capture a moment that you can feel when you look at it. No two artistic expressions he produces are ever the same. He needs to allow the people he photographs to interact with life activities to tell a story and represent the individual's true essence. When a moment in front of him appears to be particularly special, whether it be by beauty or experience he captures it.

    Robert Bonsall is available for private bookings

    Available most Tuesdays and Sundays from 9:00 am - 6:00 pm.

    Tim Chilcote
    I'm a wedding and family photographer in the Harrisburg area, armed with over 12 years of experience and a camera-wielding wife by my side (yes, we're a photo power couple). Together, we weave magic with light and laughter, capturing those raw, unscripted moments.

    Think of me as your Photo Sherpa, guiding you through a photo adventure exploring both the technical and the people side of capturing great photos.

    Tim Chilcote is available for private bookings

    Curious about the magic behind the lens? I'm open for a limited number of private photo bookings for those who want to peek behind the curtain and learn from a veteran of 12 years. Or perhaps you need me to capture your next event. DM me for details and let's chat!

    Title or Location: Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion ? Philadelphia, PA
    This photo was shot in the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion, the only authentically restored Victorian era mansion in Philadelphia. The lighting in this photo is natural sunlight (diffused by clouds and snowfall) coming from a single window at the top of the stairs. When I saw the interior of the mansion, especially the staircase, I immediately thought of John L. Russell?s cinematography on Hitchcock?s iconic film Psycho. And I wanted to make a photo that was both beautiful, and somewhat unsettli

    Title or Location: Great Wheel, Seattle Washington
    This photo is from early in my photography journey. I attended one of my first Seattle-based photography meet-ups and after the meet and greets, we split into small groups to find some compositions. I had been playing around with long exposures and light trails and the bright lights from the Great Wheel caught my eye. I spent a good amount of time that evening making new relationships and capturing this image.
