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.

    This is Holy Nativity Church in Rockledge, PA. I've passed this church a hundred times and this time I decided to go out and make some photographs. I walked around the church photographing it from many different angles and perspectives, both using a regular color DSLR, and also a DSLR converted to record Infrared light. This image is an Infrared look at the church and surrounding environment. There is a saying in the Infrared world, "If there is magic to be found in Infrared, it will be found in

    Title or Location: Quakake, PA (Rush Twp. - NE Schuylkill County)
    This photo was taken November 5, 2023 at 3:45 PM. While walking around my property looking for a subject to photograph, I thought of a technique I recently heard of to move the camera while using a slow shutter speed. With the Nikon D3500 in Manual mode, f/22, 1/1.6 sec., ISO 100, 18mm, I clicked off the first photo. Thinking it to be too dark, I readjusted my settings and took 6 more exposures. Turns out the dark photo was the keeper.

    During Sunset on Oct 26, I decided to head to the lookout spot at Hawk Mountain to take some scenic pictures of the Autumn Season. Once I made it to the spot, I saw a couple playing the guitar together further down from the lookout spot and decided to take some pictures of them. The couple, the ocean of autumn colored leaves, and the aesthetics of the guitar all looked so beautiful to me and I?m glad I was able to get this captured. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do!Captured with my

    Horseshoe Bend near Page Arizona. A great place to take a sunset photo since the sun sets directly behind it as shown and as it does it lights up the foreground rocks nice and orange. You will need to bracket your exposures and blend in HD to get the best photo if you want a star burst or wait till after the sun sets and you will get an amazing gold color on the horizon. Just don't get too close to the edge of course. Easy access off of route 89 south just south of Page AZ. About a half mile ea

    I made this picture from the top of the Spiral Deck Parking Garage. I love going up there to get a higher perspective. I was wandering the streets with my 90mm lens on this day. The photo was captured at around 10 in the morning on December 26th, 2022. At the time, the restaurant was the Linden Diner. However, it has since been transformed into Crown Fried Chicken!!Gear: Sony A7iv with 90mm Macro f2.8Camera settings: f2.8, 1/1000s, 100 ISOFun fact: In the edit, I removed all color from

    For 2 weeks every winter Sydney is lit up with amazing colours and beams of light over the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and various buildings throughout the city. I captured this photo of the Opera House from across the water at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.

The Superstion Mountains were named Monte Superstition by Spanish conquistadors who arrived in the 1540s. Greedy for gold, they tried to get local Apaches to show them where it was however, believing the area was home to the God of Thunder, they refused for fear of angering him.

    This photo is one I took in september 2023. On this night I captured quite a few different photos and perspectives of the milky way over and around the bridge. My goal on this evening was to take full advantage of the position of the milky way as there are very few opportunities that you can photograph the milky way positioned near the bridge during the year. I found this photo with other ones from that night I had not edited. Astro photography needs conditions to be right in relation to moon,
