Saturday 06 July
S Arroyo Blvd - 9am - 2 Hours
Rolando Salas
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 was the only participant. That wasn't a problem, but perhaps there should be a way to have a minimum number so there is some group dynamics. Thea was awesome. She listened and was able to craft the session to compliment my strengths while suggesting different things to challenge me.

    Rolando Salas
    Rolando R Salas first developed his passion early in high school. His mother believed it was a great idea to be selected for a media class. Little did he know, that class would soon have an impact on his life. Two years later his mother saw the passion grow and she gifted him his first digital camera. He learned the basics and when College called his name, his knowledge only grew.

    Five years later, Rolando set out in Texas. He became part of a digital media crew and was mentored by a colleague who showed him the different specs of cameras. Rolando believes in knowledge and experience. Nearly a decade later, Rolando has a wide portfolio for photography in areas such as Landscaping, Portraits, Real Estate, Drone Photography, and Photo Marketing, and he is only learning more as the days go by.

With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I
