Street Photography

Saturday 21 September
Downtown Ocala - 10am - 2 Hours
Kaley Wallace
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you.

We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

    Kaley is a knowledgeable and engaging instructor. I was able to test out a new prime lens in this particular environment. Both Kaley and the class had many helpful suggestions. These are fun and informative events. I highly recommend.

    My wife and I really enjoyed the style of the class. The experiential learning style was outstanding. We took over 200 photographs. Kaylee was knowledgeable, friendly, and provided both good technical advice and composition tips. Her passion for photography was obvious.

    This was an easy walking photo field trip with a knowledgeable leader. Kaley knew where to look for birds that live in the park, and she knew the sections that attract the birds. I didn't feel I was being managed but rather that I had found a kindred spirit in photography.

    I've been doing installments of a Post Apocalypse Series as a part of my creative journey and this photo was one of those photos. Taken at a remote location at an abandoned phosphate mine. I like to leave viewers with an emotional response of ambiguity and reality that may exist.

    I just got a new camera and lens combo (Z9 & 180-600mm), but have been too busy to get out and really put it through it's paces. So I ventured out into my back yard to see if I could find a willing subject to shoot some test photos. I know the new camera is great, but want make sure the new lens is sharp enough to satisfy me. I hope to use it on a couple of "bucket-list" trips I hope to take in the next few years.There was not much activity, but I did spot this miniature dinosaur peeking out

    Title or Location: VIVID Sydney - Sydney Harbour
    For 2 weeks every winter Sydney is lit up with amazing colours and beams of light over the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and various buildings throughout the city. I captured this photo of the Opera House from across the water at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.
