We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Tucson. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from amateurs to professionals. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

Complete beginner? Please complete a Beginners Photography Class before attending a regular group session. This is a 3 hour structured workshop where you’ll learn the basics of using your camera with more 1-on-1 time with the instructor. Scroll down for dates.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

After group editing session. After each group the instructor runs an optional 1.5 hour critique, select, and edit session to help you improve your important post-shoot skills. While much editing can be done on modern cameras, it's best to bring a tablet or laptop with editing software to get the most out of this session. Select this option when booking to attend.

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Focusing On The Foreground - Saguaro National Park East - 9am - 2 hours
The Tucson Photography Group outing on Saturday, November 30th will be hosted by Rebecca Sasnett, with the theme of Focusing On The Foreground. In a well composed photograph, one of the key components is a strategically placed element in the foreground. One key advantage to using prominent foregrounds is that it gives the viewer a sense of being there, that one could walk right into the scene. A great foreground will introduce you to a scene, and help the image to come alive. You will learn how to get the whole picture in focus? How do you add depth to a photo? Where do you focus to take a picture? Plus so much more.

"Becca" did an awesome job in covering "wildlife" photography. She also is very tech savvy and was able to help me move from shooting in aperture priority mode to manual and to help me use back button focus correctly. There was one other person in the group so there was a lot of time to get one on one help with getting the settings correct and critiquing the photos.

It was perfect. Rebecca’s approach was to involve everyone in the process. We learned how to set the exposure for sunny days outside & low light indoors. Experimenting with ISO, shutter speed & aperture. It was great fun.

The Tucson photography Group Complete Beginners Class this morning was fantastic. The instructor, John de Dios, enthusiasm about photography & mentoring beginners was infectious. I learned to keep it simple, don’t worry about all of the many settings your camera has. Just set it to manual & understand aperture, shutter speed & ISO, Practice & have fun😎 Thank you John.
