Festive & Holiday Photography - Salt Palace Convention Center - 2pm - 2 Hours
We’ll be exploring a range of techniques to capture the spirit of the season, including street photography, architectural photography, and portraiture.
We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Salt Lake City. 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!
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.
We also occasionally hold more formal beginners classes which last 3 hours and are limited to 6 people. These classes are perfect for complete beginners who want to start using manual mode and those who want to brush up on the basics. See the dates below.
Abstract Photography - Salt Palace Convention Center - 2pm - 2 Hours
Abstract Photography enables the photographer to be very creative, by zeroing in on the color, texture, line, shape, geometry, symmetry, or reflection of a scene, the photographer warps our perception of a familiar object.
Abstract photography, like all abstract art, focuses on the simplest elements of artistic expression. The viewer is often unable to see the whole subject within the photo. Getting into abstract photography is one of the best ways that any aspiring photographer can start out in photography.

I loved it! Had fun and learned a lot! 5/5 by Lindsey Zocolo 14-11-2019
It was very informative and offered a nice way to practice a form of photography that is definitely harder than it looks. Nancy did a great job of structuring the Meetup, with set time limits for completing each assignment. The talk and historic photographer slideshow at the beginning helped to set the tone and provided some good inspiration for what was to follow. The assignments helped me a bit to break out of my shell, to be a little less shy about photographing people in a street photography setting. Thank you, Nancy, for a wonderful first ever Meetup event for me! 5/5 by Jerome Rothermund 27-10-2019
