Introduction to Manual Settings Meetup

Introduction to Manual Settings Meetup

Saturday 13 July
Downtown Las Vegas - 10am - 2 Hours
Matthew Consoli
I encourage newer photographers to sign up for this session. We will demystify ISO, shutter speed, and aperture settings. We will combine architecture, street, and art subjects to leverage and practice step-by-step instructions. Some of you who have joined me in the past may find this session to be a little elementary, but feel free to sign up if you want to challenge yourself with practice and add more content to your collection.

No specialty gear is necessary. In fact, bring a camera phone! Modern phones offer customization of these three settings, so sign up if this will benefit you!
For everyone else: bring one or two lenses, leave the flashes and tripods at home, and be sure that you have at least 32 gigs of free storage and extra batteries.
Please find some videos that show you how to change the shutter speed, ISO, and aperture settings for your own camera. That's it, I can provide guidance from there. There are many manufacturers, and I don't know all of the settings.

Architecture Photography Meetup

Architecture Photography Meetup

Saturday 27 July
Hacienda Rd, Newberry Springs - 10am - 2 Hours
Matthew Consoli
As a unique unused collection of buildings, the years of graffiti and weathering have given this cluster of abandoned structures an ephemeral quality. The emphasis of the shoot will encompass both story-telling and a meditation on the progression of decay in the absence of human intervention. Considering the nature of the site, a variety of different compositions will be warmly encouraged.

    Matthew is a great lead photographer and his location was spot-on for model photography. I was able to get so many good shots, with different backgrounds and the models seemed to enjoy the day, also. The 85mm lens shoot worked really well!

    I?ve been looking to expand my photography skillset, so I decided to head out to Floyd Lamb Park to put to test some of the basics I learned about bird photography. I?m still honing my skills, but I saw this awesome heron patiently waiting for fish to swim by. I spent a good 45 minutes to an hour watching this little guy and I found myself entertained. This experience allowed me to just let things slow down and enjoy the moment.

    ?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.?

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
