Macro Photography Meetup

Macro Photography Meetup

Saturday 02 March
Tusculum Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45226 - 2pm - 2 Hours
Richard O'Brien
Macro photography is a unique form of photography that involves photographing small objects to make them look life-sized or more significant in the photo. The usual subjects include flowers and small insects, which we don't normally get to see up close with the naked eye.

The class will start when the insects are more active. So be ready to explore and capture breathe-taking macro images.

Although no insects or flowers are present yet, the pavilion has two floors which will provide wonderful architectural macro photography.

Did you recently get a camera as a gift? Would you like to learn more about the settings and how to take jaw-dropping photos? Let me bring you out of "auto" mode and into Manual mode. The theme is "Beginners Photography" Class. Alms Park has a 2 story Pavilion, and a Pergola area which provides a distant view of the Ohio River. Parking is free on the same side of the road as the Pavilion. We will meet in front of the Pavilion. I'm sure the shots obtained will be crisp and stunning. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Questions and discussion are always welcome. A Beginners Photography challenge will also take place. I'll describe skills and methods for taking photos with great composition which includes an explanation of the photography triangle.

Angles and Views Photography Meetup

Angles and Views Photography Meetup

Saturday 30 March
Park Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45219 - 2pm - 2 Hours
Richard O'Brien
Taking photos can be pleasantly challenging; especially when taking shots of angles and viewing the different types of composition resulting from such a technique. The attached roof of the building at the park offers a unique, artistic texture of cement that takes on different shapes and sizes which will correlate well with the meetup theme. In addition, there is a remarkable view of the Cincinnati skyline and a cement trail for walking that measures 5 times around for 1 mile. I will offer a photography challenge and also show you how to go from JPG "Auto" mode into RAW/Manual Mode. Discussion and questions always welcome. Looking forward to seeing you there !!

    I went out to get a picture of the sunrise. It had just snowed and the temperature had plummeted. I wasn?t too happy with the sunrise and was about to call it quits and go home. It was 2 degrees outside and I was getting cold. I heard geese and ducks in the stance and followed the sounds to a pond that was partially frozen. The steam was coming off the pond and the light just kept getting better. I am extremely new to photography and was out just trying to learn. Ended up having one of the b

    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
