Abstract Photography

Abstract Photography

Saturday 22 June
Columbia Rd - 10am - 2 Hours
Samira Hatamizadeh
Abstract photography involves capturing a subject in a way that renders it either partially or completely unrecognizable, emphasizing instead on the interplay of shapes, colors, and form.

In this workshop, we will explore the art of creating striking and thought-provoking images through the use of abstraction.

Our experienced instructor will guide you through the process of understanding and applying the principles of abstract photography, including composition, color, and texture. We will cover topics such as finding inspiration in everyday objects, experimenting with different angles and perspectives.

Nature Photography Meetup

Nature Photography Meetup

Saturday 06 July
Crossrail Place - 10am - 2 Hours
Samira Hatamizadeh
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.

Architectural photography can be a great way of exploring and documenting a city, whether it's your home or on holiday. Its about capturing not only the design and accurate representation of a building, but to have the shots be aesthetically pleasing to the viewer's eye. An architectural photographer makes pictures, not takes pictures.

In this session, we will be covering how to better understand Architecture photography and we'll be looking at ways to take some impressive shots and the camera settings to use.

    Samira Hatamizadeh
    I am Samira.
    For ten years, I have shared everything I have learned and experienced about photography as a photography instructor, which makes me happy.
    I started photography by taking pictures of beautiful nature. After experiencing different genres of photography such as fashion, advertising, portrait, and ..., I am mostly fascinated with street and urban photography.
    Photography has always been the most significant personal way of dealing with the world around me, which enables me to feel the world without a come-between, even without a camera!
    My educational background has been in Visual Communication and Visual Anthropology, and I am currently based in London.

I captured this photo of the Opera House from across the water at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.

    This photo is one I took in september 2023. On this night I captured quite a few different photos and perspectives of the milky way over and around the bridge. My goal on this evening was to take full advantage of the position of the milky way as there are very few opportunities that you can photograph the milky way positioned near the bridge during the year. I found this photo with other ones from that night I had not edited. Astro photography needs conditions to be right in relation to moon,
