Nature Photography Meetup

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.

    PHOTOGRAPHERS
    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.

    I took this photo after work on the night of Friday 5-10-24. I was seeing posts about people seeing the northern lights as low as Oklahoma. I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

I was using a Canon 40D and Canon 100-400mm L series lens at the time.RIAT is wholly dependant upon the right weather for good photography. Cloud too low - display routines are changed.

    Knowing there was a high chance of seeing the aurora borealis, I left work early on Friday, May 10. First, I stopped at my local camera store to buy a new lens I had been dreaming about (14-24mm f2.8). Then I drove to Minnesota to meet up with another photographer. By 1am, we found ourselves by this lake. I often found myself admiring the aurora and not taking pictures. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced.
