Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 07 September
Chugach National Forest - 10am - 2 Hours
Jason Larson
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.

    Excellent. Jason took the time to ask me what I wanted to learn and accomplish at or event. He more than accomplished that. He spent time with each person at the session to help and answer their individual needs.

    It totally worked for my kind of learning. Jason was attentive and willing to teach with all of us at different levels. He was also very knowledgeable about cameras, camera equipment and how all our different cameras worked. I would definitely take another class with him and would recommend to others.

    Jason was extremely knowledgeable and flexible. Very willing to reschedule class due to terrible conditions. And was also willing to have a cup of coffee with us to go over some basics! Excellent teacher! I look forward to the make-up class.

    PHOTOGRAPHERS
    Jason Larson
    Jason Larson is a nature photographer with an emphasis on wildlife photography. He has spent countless hours in the rainy Washington weather patiently waiting for the animal to move into frame. He recently made the move to Alaska with his partner and has been blown away by the incredible scenery and vistas, especially so close to Anchorage. He spends most of his free time exploring and looking for animals to shoot. He is looking forward to meeting like-minded photographers with the same passion for the craft.

    I always leave some crab apples on my tree to attract these beautiful birds in the winter. This was taken in the morning from my back deck. I loved how the light was shining through the apple skins left on the tree. I was using a Fuji X-T5 with the XF 50-140 F2.8

    Title or Location: Sunny Sands, Folkestone
    This morning was not very promising, but still I was determined to get out and take pictures! Headed to Sunny Sands and found these two rocks in the sand that caught my interest. The tide was rising and the sun started glowing in the sky! "Perfect moment", and the a wave caught me by surprise and made my feet soaking wet! Apparently sign of good luck, and maybe so, it's one of my best images and was definitely worth it!

    Title or Location: McGee Creek, eastern Sierra Nevada
    I had been out of photography for a few years, and was just getting back into it when my brother and I took a trip to the eastern Sierra for fall colors in October 2017. We had been out all day when we returned to McGee Creek during the late afternoon. A had set up my camera and tripod to get a long exposure shot of leaves on a rock in the creek, when I looked to my right and saw another great image. I realized that my "eye" had returned, and I was exhilarated! Rock with aspen leaf, McGee Cr

    ?This past Father?s Day I went to a family farm cidery with my oldest daughter. The drinks were good, the company was great, but the best part was the farm?s commitment to keeping wild, native plants for pollinators. This little bee found a delicious clover and I got this macro shot.?
