Sunset Photography Meetup - Iron Door Restaurant 10300 E Ski Run Rd, Mt Lemmon, AZ 85619 - 5pm - 2 hours
Focus on capturing the horizon as the sky changes.

Sunset photography is a bit of a funny one really. It is harder than it looks, but is often one of the first things that beginners like to try. More often than not though, the exposure needs work, and the post-processing needs additional work.

It was a nice relaxing event. I personally used it as a refresher. The teacher Peyton was very good about checking up on people and seeing how they were doing and if they had any questions.

Just perfect for a beginner, and those like me still struggling a little to understand how ISO, shutter speed and aperture work to gether to create a good image. The instructor was great.

It was a small event so it took patience to get a good shot that told one part of a larger story. I’m compiling my visual story from todays outing as we speak. It was truly education & fun. 🙏

it was the challenge i hoped for. Rebecca did a fine job checking in with each photographer and asking to see their images and offering observations and advice. With so many stories to tell at a venue like this, and with the photojournalism guidelines to tell a story for the paper, etc. I had to force my self to visualize what i wanted others to see about this event, not just the subjects in front of the lens. fun venue ,
