With a small Group of Students our Instructor German Ruiz walked each and everyone step by step to help master all the photographic essentials.
The course included a complete back to basics lecture covering every aspect of camera controls and photographic settings, a 3 hour photo-walk in Brickell , and a 2 hour photo critique where everyone had a chance to showcase their work.
We are starting off November with a kick! Come out and be apart of our Meetup along the Miami River, it’s an awesome walk to catch some architecture, ships, river shots. It’ll also be another great opportunity to meet other photographers in the community, as well as making new friends 😀
This walk is full of great photo opportunities, such as the boats and vessels – there is a difference and the former merchant marine officer that I am will explain it – in the river passing by, bikes from the 60’s and even an “Indu Temple”. We might get lucky and get some super big yachts going by!
Things to keep in mind:
• We start from the Marlins Park East Side in front of the Latin American Grill and will end up at Garcia’s (398 NW North River Dr, Miami, FL 33128)
• This is a free Meetup
• Don’t forget wide-angle lenses..or any lens you already have
PLEASE REGISTER HERE: RSVP
Look forward to meeting you guys and seeing many of you again! Positive Vibes!
