Saturday 20 July
Downtown Lafayette - 10am - 3 Hours
Lafayette Photography Group
Mallory Stanford
This meetup goes over some basic dos and don'ts for posing and looks at issues to do with shooting in daylight for the best results. Included are: shooting different body types, men, women and shooting with strong sunlight and shooting in shade, and designing your background (composition). Feel free to invite your family or friends to join us as models for this meetup. If you don't have anyone to bring along, no worries; we can all take photos of each other within the group. It's all about having a great time together!

You will preferably need a normal, 85mm or longer lens, or a zoom. If you have a wide-angle this can also be used as we will be also looking at environmental portraits.

This is the perfect meetup to learn how to take the perfect portraits of family and friends.

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 03 August
Northeastern corner of Lafayette - 10am - 2 Hours
Lafayette Photography Group
Mallory Stanford
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. We will learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make subjects pop.

I have always adored the vibrant color palette of the Macaw's feathers for many years. This is my first attempt at painting this species of bird, and it was a fun learning experience.

Title or Location: Chula Vista - Sunset View Park
Taken at local park as sun was setting. The light as the sun was setting reminded me of a painting from a tutorial I had previously worked on. It was reminiscent of the French countryside and was something that looked so peaceful.

Title or Location: Gracie
I find painting dogs very interesting because their appearance is so varied. This golden doodle is from a friend's photo of her pet Gracie. I painted a loose background in watercolours then painted negatively to pick out the wavey and curly areas of her coat. Gouache picked out some lighter areas. I find painting without a drawing creates a looser result. I start with the nose and measure from there.
