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 just got a lightroom classic so it was a good start to get familiar with a few things. I really enjoyed learning how to make a watermark! As always, Rick is a great instructor and makes sure you know what your doing before going on. That's so important for me. I got lost a couple of times and he was very patient and helped me get to where I needed to be.

    It was great to meetup with other photographers from the tri-state, and it was even greater to have a pro photographer that was not only friendly and personable with a great sense of humor. He made it a point to assist everyone in any way he could. I believe everyone was comfortable regardless of skill level.

    I went on a whale watching trip at dawn in California to try to see some migrating humpback whales. We didn?t see many whales but the trip was still worth it because a huge pod of dolphins surrounded our boat. I normally shoot wildlife with a telephoto lens but I had to quickly scramble to switch to my wide angle lens instead and luckily was in the right moment to captured the perfect shot of one dolphin just hitting the water as another dolphin started to come out.

    I found this Bold Jumper spider on May 6th...he was quite timid as he watched with his many eyes. He tried to hide under the leaf of a plant as I attempted to focus with my lens. When you get a close look you realize how beautiful these spiders really are with their iridescent blues and greens. If you look closely you can see my reflection in his front two eyes. This little guy is actually very tiny, about the size of my pinky finger fingernail. Shot with my Nikon Z8, NIKKOR Z 105mm f2.

    I have been to Death Valley numerous times, it has actually become one of my favorite National Parks. I will usually do sunrise at one of two locations there in the park, Mesquite Dunes is most times my first choice. I love the dunes first thing in the morning becasue the shadows that are cast over the dunes. The one thing that I also love about the dunes is from weather the formations are always changing so you always can find new looks plus the notion that the area is large and you can walk in

    My wife and I have known each other for over 15 years after we met as kids when she was 11 and I was 13. She grew up on a small farm in Eastern Kentucky before we got married and she moved to Cincinnati to be with me a few years back. We grew up playing on her family's farm and we still visit my in-laws who live there. This photo was taken of my father-in-law at their farm as he prepared his horse bridle for a weekend ride.
