Parshwa Panchwatkar
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.

Cutting back from Charles Bridge at night we avoided the main crowds heading back to the Old Town Square and came across this quiet cobbled street. What stood out for me was the individual broken shadows against the cobbles. The warm glow of a traditional style lamp light that could have been from any time accept for the grafitti that brought the scene
