Intro to Photography
The SaddleBrooke Photography Club is open to all residents of SaddleBrooke, no matter their skill level or equipment they are using.
The Club offers opportunities to learn how to improve your picture taking through the basics of Composition, Exposure, Lighting, Perspective and Focus. These basic apply whether you are shooting photos on your smartphone or using a camera with accessories valued at thousands of dollars.
There are opportunities for education, including selection and use of your camera, to using software for the post processing of your images. Fun activities challenge members to go to a location and “look for” items from a new perspective… a sort of scavenger hunt.
Special interest groups let you delve into other aspects of photography, from learning more about the popular new mirrorless cameras, to using special techniques to create unusual images.
There’s something for everyone.
Programs We Offer
The club offers “open studio” every Wednesday and Friday in the Agate Room at the HOA2 Arts & Crafts Center from 9am to 12 noon. All members can bring in their cameras and accessories for additional assistance. Members can also bring photos if they are wanting to show what they have done, and to learn how the shot or how software can be used to do post processing.
The club regularly plans field trips that offer unique photography experiences. Sometimes it’s a scavenger hunt where attendees are given a list of items to be photographed. Other times we may go to special events such as a Renassaince Festival, or a Day of the Dead night time parade. Yet other field trips include multi-day stays such as grabbing great shots of the Sandhill Cranes at Bosque de Apache in New Mexico.
