We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Phoenix. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

What痴 involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You値l then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You値l receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We池e a social bunch!

After group editing session. After each group the instructor runs an optional 1.5 hour critique, select, and edit session to help you improve your important post-shoot skills.

All About Aperture Photography Meetup - Veterans Oasis Park - 1pm - 2 hours
The Phoenix Photography Group outing on Sunday March 8th will be hosted by Jimmie Sullivan, with the theme of All About Aperture. New photographers get very confused about aperture. We will be learning hands on about large and small aperture sizes and how to think about the best aperture for an outcome you would like to achieve. It's important to understand Depth of Field and Aperture. Depth of Field is that amount of your shot that will be in focus. If all of this becomes a little overwhelming for you or you just really want to nail this area of photography. Then this class is for you!

Sunset Photography Meetup - Skyline Regional Park - 5pm - 2 hours
A beautiful sunset can be enjoyed and appreciated by everyone. Photographers refer to the last (dusk) hours of the day as the "golden hours" when the light is at its best for photography. Our light meters can be thrown off by the strong amount of light hitting our sensor, so we will be exploring manual mode and exposure compensation to intensify the colours of our sunset.

After realizing I didn't know as much as I thought I did about digital photography this course was a new beginning. I now better understand what it means to shoot in manual digital mode. i hope to use this knowledge to better enjoy photography. Not to mention take better pictures.
