Industrial Landscape Photography Meetup

Industrial Landscape Photography Meetup

Saturday 01 June
North Docks - 10am - 2 Hours
Valentina Passerini
We will be starting with an overview of landscape photography technique, how to decide what to take a picture of and how to compose shots, we will then move into settings and more technical challenges to get an idea of when the camera behaves best for landscapes.

You can use buildings and other man-made structures compositionally in the same way other landscape photographers use trees and rolling hills. Wind farms, harbours, cement works, power stations, quarries, pylons and building sites are just a few of the industrial landscapes you can photograph. The Liverpool docks are the perfect setting for this kind of photography meetup.

The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you.

Street art is a unique and colorful art form and can be found in all kinds of nooks and crannies in cities all over the world. Capturing art in the streets in photographs can be tricky because these urban art pieces are in public spaces, that are busy and usually filled with a decent amount of traffic. Sometimes you include the people and sometimes, you don't.

Composition is one of the most critical element in photography. Composition is how a photographer arranges the visual elements within their image, frame.

Even in the digital world, composition remains the key to creating strong images. Composition is what guides our eye through an image and gives importance to the subject. It creates the story for the viewer and how we as photographers convey that message.

    I learnt a lot about using my camera in manual mode but wasn't inspired by the location. 2 hours would have been long enough then we could have gone away to practice on our own.

    Whilst out making photographs of the sun rising over Alfred Dock I remembered to look behind me. Caught in the emerging sun was the Peel Ports development of Miller's Quay. The colourful composition caught my eye but to make it more thought provoking I flipped the image. Nikon D4s, 105mm f/2.5 Ais lens, -1 exposure bias.

    For me, at the moment, photography is my outlet. Having moved to Liverpool a couple of years ago, in recent months I've decided to pickup my camera again. Liverpool is a fantastic city to take photographs in, the people, the architecture, the opportunities are endless. Have done plenty of street shots during the day, but this was the first time i have taken proper night shots. With this particular shot i loved how the lighting varied on the building giving a pseudo 3D glasses effect (with th

    As I was visiting the Anglican Cathedral I thought I'd visit the cemetery next door as haven't been there for some time. To enter the cemetery I had to pass through this short sandstone tunnel lined with old gravestones. The cemetery and gardens are well worth a visit as the historic headstones give a wonderful insight into the people of Liverpool both rich and poor from many years ago.

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

    Last February, I left Sydney with my friends at 6pm to capture the first Milky Way view of 2024. I was very anxious because I saw a lot of clouds on the way, but I was really happy to see clear skies as I passed Newcastle. When we arrived at the lighthouse, fortunately we were the only ones in the group, so we were able to take photos without any disturbance. The lighthouse light, which was not too bright, was very helpful in filming.
