Street Photography

Saturday 25 May
Centre Street SW - 9am - 2 Hours
William Chornobrywy
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.

    Captured through a long exposure lens against the backdrop of the Calgary skyline, this photograph features the iconic Peace Bridge aglow in the evening light. The long exposure technique required patient observation, allowing me to immerse myself in the tranquil atmosphere while the city buzzed with activity. Amidst the hustle and bustle of urban life, the nighttime scene offered a sense of serenity and contemplation.This image embodies the juxtaposition of modernity and tranquility that de

    Title or Location: Calgary, Near Centre Street Bridge
    Certainly, here's a more straightforward description focusing on the evening and the scene:Taken from the Centre Street Bridge at dusk, this photograph captures the serene beauty of Calgary's skyline as the sun dips below the horizon. After a day spent exploring potential new homes in the city, I ventured out to witness the transition from day to night. The Calgary Tower, an iconic landmark, stands prominently against the backdrop of the evening sky, illuminated by the warm hues of the set

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea

    Title or Location: Horseshow Bend in Page, AZ
    I had shot the sunrise at Horseshoe Bend the same morning and was hoping for a blazing sunset at this location after talking to the other photographers present at sunrise. Even with some clouds, we were not so fortunate and when the sunlight was casting on the water I switched to black and white mentality and was able to capture this photo. You can just see the setting sun in the upper right corner for the photo.

    Title or Location: Nene Valley Railway - Wansford
    I was on a leisurely family walk going towards Nene Valley Railway in Wansford when serendipity struck, and I found myself in the perfect spot to capture a captivating moment. The sight of a steam train preparing to depart from the station sparked a rush of excitement and nostalgia. The timeless allure of steam trains and the bustling atmosphere of the railway added a touch of history and charm to my photography experience.

    It was a cloudy day and my cat was up in the tree. he had always had very deep blue, but with all the defused light from the clouds and the contrast from the tree bark, It sent me running for my camera.I shot it on a Nikon D5600, with a 70 - 200mm lens, on January 25, 2024.I shot it raw while in manual mode, the aperture was 4.1, the iso 100, and the shutter speed was 1 over 700.

    This one took a bit of planning to catch the Milky Way in the place I wanted, the Weather, Moon, and Milky Way core all had to be right and as you might guess it took a few seasons for it to come together, every time it was a walk in the dark over the sand dunes from Pennard to get to the right spot on the cliff edge, I'm a little picky when it comes to star trails and although there are certain formulas for shutter speed to "visibly" limit star trails I'd rather have none, so I dragged my Star
