The Basics of Digital Photography Workshop

With a small Group of Students our Instructor German Ruiz walked each and everyone step by step to help master all the photographic essentials.

SONY DSCThe 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.




Along the Miami River Photo Walk

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

Great Food Workshop , thanks to Vincent Catala !

Saturday workshop was great. Chef Vincent Catala did an amazing job working together with our Instructor Sharma Shari.


After the presentation, the students were presented with a 5 course meal created live by chef Vincent Catala. Each plate gave the students a chance to use different light and background set up. DSC_6721



We also got to try all those delicious creations made by Chef Vincent Catala!



After practice was done, we had a time for Critique, in which everybody had the chance to showcase their work.


Lot’s of fun during Sunday’s Photo Walk: Let’s lit the “Cabanas”, Time-lapse and landscape with a telephoto lens

In the 1st challenge time-lapse: We spoke about modes/flickering/post production and start a time-lapse as soon as we arrived on the beach.

We tried different combinations by using continuous light and strobes to shape the light to get different results.
