Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 08 June
Greenwich - 12pm - 2 Hours
Prachi Chandna
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.

    Over the past few years, Prachi has been diving headfirst into photography, finding joy in capturing everything from sweeping landscapes to the hustle and bustle of city streets. Alongside her personal projects, she's been freelancing, snapping product shots for various clients and adding another layer of creativity to her portfolio.

    Before making her way to London, Prachi was already knee-deep in the world of photography and videography. She even spent some time at Marathon Sports, where she got to flex her skills with brands like Nike and Skechers. Now, as she dives into cinematography at Goldsmiths University, she's exploring new ways to tell stories through visuals, finding moments of peace and reflection behind the lens. For Prachi, photography isn't just a hobby; it's a way to escape and appreciate the world in a whole new light.

    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.

As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to
