Portraits Using Available Lights Meetup

Portraits Using Available Lights Meetup

Saturday the 8th of October
Centennial Hills Park, Las Vegas - 9am - 2 hours
Learn how to prevent the dreaded underexposed or harshly lit portrait using just the sun and a few simple tools that I will supply for you. You may be amazed how we can make great portraits so simply! We will spend some time on making people look comfortable in pictures as well, and I plan to have some subjects for you since most photographers don't like being on the other side of the lens. :)

ABOUT LAS

PHOTOGRAPHY
GROUP
Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.
Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography meetups based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.

And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next one is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

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!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Las Vegas Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you have any symptoms of COVID.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Wear a suitable face mask or show a valid vaccination card indicating that you are vaccinated.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others.
* Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitizer.

As an advanced photographer I don't learn a lot of new stuff, but it's always nice to hang out with other photographers and share the same passion.
